A top 25 US meeting-planning company

For the 12th year in a row, we have been named as one of MeetingsNet’s Top 25 US meeting-planning and incentive-travel companies. 

November, 2023

The annual report from MeetingsNet, a digital magazine and website dedicated to the meetings and incentives industry, is the go-to resource for corporations looking for experienced planning partners. In aggregate, the companies on the 2023 CMI 25 list reported executing close to 85,000 corporate meetings and nearly 3000 incentive travel programs in 2022.  


The volume of meetings handled in 2022 was below levels seen pre-pandemic, but represented an amazing rebound from 2021. For example, the median number of room nights booked for meetings and incentive travel jumped from 26,761 in 2021 to 138,894 in 2022. These companies are not just survivors theyre growing, innovating, and building partnerships to drive success in todays new market conditions. The CMI 25 report includes statistics on business volume, company news briefs, and executive commentary, giving readers a sense of the focus, strengths, and size of these major third-party firms.

In our 12th consecutive year on the list, Katie Coleman was thrilled to receive this news.


Being recognized by MeetingsNet as one of the top meetings companies focused on the US corporate market is always a very proud moment for us. 2022 was a fantastic year for Ashfield Event Experiences (now Emota). We continued to see an amazing return to in-real-life (IRL) events and we provided an even greater range of connected services to our clients through our partnerships with colleagues across Inizio Engage XD.
