Maritz Travel Company Launches Global Meetings Network (VIDEO)
David Peckinpaugh, president of the Maritz Travel Company and Experient, confirmed the launch of the Maritz Global Meetings Network at IMEX America in Las Vegas last month.
Speaking on-site with IMR, Peckinpaugh announced the formation of the “best of the best” network in response to increasing client demand for access to local and regional expertise across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America. Initially, he said, the first phase of the network is to service outbound events from North America, but under the guidance of focused General Managers, secondary and tertiary phases will service intra-regional meetings and events in addition to inbound events back to North America.
The Maritz Global Meetings Network and GMs will be on hand at EIBTM in Barcelona this month. Experience Architect for Maritz Travel, Greg Bogue, is set to present an educational session titled "Designing Guest-Centred Events" on Tuesday, November 18 at Conference Room 5.1 in the Fira Barcelona Gran Via convention center.
