ABC Global Services (ABC) reports that it is expanding into the meeting and event planning sector with the acquisition of Global Meetings and Incentives (GMI), a full-service provider of meeting logistics, content management, sourcing, convention management and incentives for corporate clients and associations throughout North America and overseas. 

The two companies say that the combination will allow them to bring together resources on an international level, leveraging greater purchasing power and the infrastructure developed by the two organizations, providing a broader offering of services and supplier relationships to their respective clients. 

GMI will continue to operate under its own brand identity, the two companies said, with Eli Sananes remaining as president and retaining its current organizational structure. The company will also continue to maintain headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida, and regional offices in Canada and Europe. 

Founded in 1978, ABC Global Services is a supplier of services and technology for travel management companies, advisors and professionals. It provides services for nearly 11,000 agency locations, covering 76 countries around the world. Its notable services include the ABC Premier Hotel Program, which has nearly 50,000 hotels around the world, all commissionable any many with discounts off BAR (best available rates), as well as ezBOOKbyABC.com, ABC’s hotel booking engine exclusively for travel professionals, which aggregates inventory across multiple distribution sources to consolidate rates and commission levels for more than 600,000 hotels worldwide.
