TBA Global Named to Fourth Annual "CMI 25" List by Corporate Meetings & Incentives Magazine

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 9, 2010) -  TBA Global has been named to the 2010 "CMI 25" list, an exclusive directory of the largest and most influential 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."

This is the second time TBA Global's meeting services group earned recognition on the CMI 25 top meeting planning list. Each year, TBA Global plans hundreds of corporate meetings and incentive trips worldwide and manages several hundred thousand room nights.

"We are proud the editors of Corporate Meetings & Incentives magazine have again acknowledged TBA Global as a top meeting planning agency," said Cindy Bell, EVP of Meeting Services at TBA Global. "Our meeting planners and travel managers are creative, flexible and well-rounded. We are known for our stellar work in the U.S. and around the world for any audience size, industry and type of program. Our clients have confidence their programs will be handled efficiently and effectively."

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.
