MeetingsNet, a leading US meetings industry publisher, has included Ashfield Meetings & Events on its 2017 CMI 25 list, the meeting industry’s only comprehensive report on the largest meeting and incentive management agencies focused on the US corporate market.
The magazine’s editors select the CMI 25 agencies based on several factors including the number of full-time employees, the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2016 and the total number of room nights that represents. Collectively, the agencies listed delivered more than 139,000 corporate meetings and incentives, representing over 12.5 million room nights.
Gavin Houston (CEO Americas, Ashfield Meetings & Events) commented: “We are thrilled to be recognized by MeetingsNet for the sixth year running. In the last 12 months we have continued to expand and enhance our services to our clients, utilizing our creative, content and production services to deliver against client objectives. We have also formed preferred technology partnerships where we share a development roadmap to continue reviewing, refining and developing the best solutions for our healthcare clients.“
Houston added: “We expanded our Indianapolis office to house our increasing workforce, including some of our creative and production team. The office is custom-branded, designed to give employees a bright and creative environment to collaborate together. Our aim is to inspire our workforce inside and outside of work, which is why we launched a new employee personal development fund called Ignition. We want to encourage our team to continually bring new perspectives to the table. Ignition was a way for us to do this and to have a little fun in the process.”
Houston concluded: “We are excited about the year ahead and further developing our employees, partnerships and brand as the leading healthcare partner of choice for full service meetings and events.”
