SAN RAFAEL, CA–(Marketwire – September 28, 2010) – Northern California-based Enterprise Events Group was named to the CMI Top 25 and is the only West Coast company on the list. The 2010 “CMI 25” list is an exclusive directory of the largest and most high-ranking full-service meeting and incentive travel management companies focused on the corporate market. Now in its fourth year, the CMI 25 list is compiled by Penton Media’s Corporate Meetings & Incentives® magazine, the leading information source for the $40 billion corporate meetings and events industry. The CMI 25, published in the September issue of Corporate Meetings & Incentives and on www.meetingsnet.com, is an essential resource for corporate executives and meeting professionals looking for partners to help strategically manage meeting dollars and design creative and motivational off-site programs.
“As a whole, this year’s CMI 25 companies handled more than 58,000 corporate meetings and incentive programs in 2009, which represents more than 6.5 million room nights across the U.S. and the world,” said Barbara Scofidio, editor of Corporate Meetings & Incentives. “Our annual report is unique to this industry, and meeting managers and procurement professionals turn to our research year-round for information on these important partners.”
“We feel honored to be part of CMI 25 again, and this acknowledgment is a reflection of the expertise, strategic thinking and customer dedication of our entire team,” said Matt Gillam, Officer of Enterprise Events Group. “This is the fourth year EEG has been chosen for this influential designation and we do not take it lightly. We will continue our commitment to excel and deliver outstanding service and programs to our clients,” said Rich Calcaterra, Officer of Enterprise Events Group.
The magazine’s editors select CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2009 and the total number of room nights represented by those meetings and incentives. They also evaluated the number of full-time employees at each company, as well as the percentage of the company’s revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives, versus association meetings or other sources.
Enterprise Events Group opened its doors sixteen years ago with the vision of creating a mid-size, full service event firm that has the infrastructure, vendor relations and technology to compete with the larger firms but maintains a concierge customer focused approach with clients and attendees. Today, Enterprise Events Group is recognized as an established leader in the industry globally and has a diverse loyal client base throughout the United States. The entire EEG team collaborates to develop seamless cutting edge event strategies and logistical support in order to produce outstanding programs and events. Special Events Magazine also ranks EEG as one of the top event companies. www.eeginc.com
