CiEvents takes over FCm Travel Solutions




Global conference and incentive specialist CiEvents has expanded its UK operation by merging with FCm Travel Solutions’ UK groups and events division.

“I am delighted that FCm Travel Solutions’ groups and events department has now become part of CiEvents in the UK, as we now have an extremely strong team in this market,” said Penny Lion, general manager of CiEvents in the UK, who spent six years at CiEvents in Australia, before introducing the brand into Britain three years ago.

“The FCm groups team is highly experienced within the meetings, incentive, conference and events industry, and we will benefit greatly from joining forces with its team to develop the CiEvents business and brand in the UK.”

Established in 1986 by Flight Centre in Australia and New Zealand, CiEvents has grown over the last two decades to become a full-service event management company with a turnover of around £50 million.

CiEvents launched in the UK in 2006 and opened an office in China in 2007. In the last three years, the UK business has grown significantly, handling major events and incentives for clients such as Thomson Reuters, IBM, La Senza, Wagamama and Telstra

FCm Travel Solutions, the business travel management division of Flight Centre, has operated a successful UK groups and events department for 20 years, with seven staff currently in Birmingham and eight in London. The Birmingham office has now re-branded as CiEvents, while staff in London have joined forces with CiEvents’ existing employees in the UK’s south east region. The CiEvents UK team now totals 20, including event managers, co-ordinators and business development managers.
