Maritz Travel Company announces Global Meetings Network
Maritz Travel Company, which consists of Maritz Travel Meetings & Incentives and Experient, has announced the launch of the Maritz Global Meetings Network, a worldwide network of in-market, experienced partners that enhances the company’s ability to offer extensive regional knowledge, capabilities and cultural solutions to its clients. This vast partnership network uniquely positions Maritz Travel Company in the meetings industry by moving away from the “brick-and-mortar” approach to global meetings.

“We are a global economy and meetings are rapidly growing beyond geographic borders,” said David Peckinpaugh, president of Maritz Travel Company. “The Maritz Global Meetings Network is the right solution for our clients who are increasingly demanding enhanced, global insights with relevant regional knowledge.”

Led by Maritz Travel Company’s industry-recognized global general managers – Ben Goedegebuure, Eduardo Chaillo and Ping He, the Maritz Global Meetings Network is an effective and efficient, client-centric approach to global meetings solutions.

“Our clients will benefit from scalable, global solutions informed with deep, regional knowledge provided by our reliable partners,” Goedegebuure said. “The partnership approach provides a cost-effective way to help clients achieve exceptional global experiences.”

The network is comprised of a variety of partners including professional congress organizers (PCOs), meeting planning companies and destination management companies (DMCs). The partners within the Maritz Global Meetings Network were chosen based on their meeting capabilities and expertise, their ability to uniquely connect Maritz Travel Company’s client programs to their respective regions, and because they share similar philosophies, ethics and values with Maritz Travel Company.

“Using an extensive network of in-country experts translates to collaborative, workable client programs,” said Ben Goedegebuure, global general manager of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Maritz Travel Company. “These hand-selected partners can help us create culturally responsive experiences by understanding clients’ needs and the way Maritz Travel Company operates.”

Currently, Maritz Travel Company is identifying partners in key geographic regions where client demand is high including Asia Pacific; Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and Latin America.

“Through the end of 2014, we will be adding additional partners that can help us further expand our capabilities worldwide in regions where our clients want to be,” Peckinpaugh said. “Once complete, the network will allow us to provide exceptional global experiences to our clients anywhere in the world at any time.”
