How can technology help you?
MeetingsNet, a digital magazine and website dedicated to the meetings and incentives industry, has named Fox World Travel to its 2018 CMI 25 list of the largest full-service meeting and incentive travel management companies focused on the U.S. corporate market.
As a group, the companies on the 2018 CMI 25 list executed more than half a million corporate meetings and nearly 8,000 incentive travel programs in 2017.
“The 2018 CMI 25 list is an extraordinary resource for corporations looking for a, experienced meeting planning partner. It allows them to get a fix on the focus, strengths, and size of these large third-parties,” said MeetingsNet Content Director Sue Hatch. “In a fast-evolving industry that demands top technology, endless creativity, and absolute attention to detail, the CMI 25 companies have found success.”
“It is an honor to be named to the CMI 25 for the seventh time. Our unwavering focus on the customer experience drives us to deliver the service, tools and technology our customers have come to expect from our incredible team at Fox World Travel meetings and incentives,” said CEO, Chip Juedes.
The CMI 25 list is published in the September 2018 issue of the MeetingsNet tablet magazine and digital edition (http://www.meetingsnet.com/digital-edition), and on www.meetingsnet.com. Company profiles include statics on business volume, top customer markets, recent company news, leadership, and more.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the top 25 most influential meeting planning companies for 2018. The entire team at Fox Meetings and Incentives works diligently to enhance the customer experience at each and every touch point. Providing exceptional customer service is not just a goal but a way of life here at FOX and to be recognized for those efforts is truly an honor,” said Vice President of Meetings and Incentives, James Keller.
The MeetingsNet editors selected CMI 25 companies based on several factors, including the number of meetings and incentive travel programs managed in 2017 and the total number of room nights represented by those meetings and incentives. They also considered the number of full-time employees at each company, as well as the percentage of the company’s 2017 revenues that came from organizing corporate meetings and incentives versus association meetings or other sources.
The passion to guide travelers to their desired destinations has led Fox World Travel to become one of the top travel companies in the country. This success is represented in being named to Inc. 5000 five years running and being ranked #27 on the 2018 Travel Weekly Power List (a ranking of all major business and vacation travel agencies). Based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Fox World Travel employs more than 260 associates averaging more than eight years of service.
Finding a creative, lasting way to thank employees for a job well done or get them excited to work toward a goal can be challenging, which is why many companies are turning toward incentive travel companies. By partnering with a travel management company that offers incentive travel, you can determine what type of incentive travel is right for your staff and which experiences will be rewarding while falling within your budget. Go it alone — at the very least you could be overwhelmed, and at the worst, find that you don’t have the expertise to plan the ideal incentive travel within your available resources.
Rewarding top performers and motivating staff are key tactics for ensuring company success, and it turns out leveraging creative incentive trip ideas may be the key. Many companies are so busy today and do not have the time to come up with creative travel incentive ideas—so here are a few from our meetings and incentives experts to get you started.
