Congrex Americas joins the Maritz Global Meetings Network

Congrex Americas continues its expansion and development by joining the Maritz Global Meetings Network as the exclusive representative for Panama, effective immediately.

Javier Montilla Q., Managing Director, explains about the network and the reasoning behind joining:

‘When we bought Congrex Americas we put together a vision of what we wanted to achieve in this first phase. We designed a clear five-year plan for development and growth to get us there. As part of this plan, we felt it natural to establish an alliance with a Global Company with an excellent reputation in the Meetings Industry. Maritz Global Events and its Global Meetings Network very much fits this vision for us and I am glad they also see us as a great fit for them here in Panama supporting their team and projects. Maritz Global Events and its clients will now have local knowledge, a team on the ground and added value here in Panama to offer to their clients. We, on the other hand, will continue to gain knowledge and exposure not only from Maritz Global Events but also from other fellow company members. We look forward to working with them’.

Rob Harrison, Board of Directors’ President, commented;

‘The team has worked extremely hard and stayed focused on the vision and plan we put in place in 2013. We have expanded not only our client base but also in experience and knowledge which is what our clients’ demand in this ever-evolving industry. It is fantastic to see key milestones getting achieved ahead of plan. In joining the Maritz Global Meeting Network, we can continue along this path of managed development and grow our team, knowledge, experience and client base, all of which are very important to us. With continued growth and development comes opportunity which is one of the key things we want to be able to offer to all staff.

Eduardo Chaillo, Global General Manager of Latin America at Maritz Global Events, shares why Congrex Panama was chosen to be a part of the Maritz Global Meetings Network:

“Maritz Global Events has hand-selected Congrex Americas based on their meeting capabilities and expertise, their ability to uniquely connect our client programs to the local community in Panama, and because they share similar philosophies, ethics and values as Maritz Global Events. They have a deep breadth of knowledge and expertise within Panama, as well as a strong reputation of quality, reliability, financial stability and service excellence. In addition, Congrex Americas has extensive professional congress organizer/ project management capabilities within the association, corporate, tradeshow and government markets where Maritz Global Events provides services.”

David Peckinpaugh, President of Maritz Global Events, further explains:

“We are confident Congrex Americas will help us design and deliver exceptional meeting experiences to our clients,” said David Peckinpaugh, president, Maritz Global Events. “The team at Congrex Americas is a great extension of the Maritz Global Events team and we will rely on them to help us create culturally responsive experiences by understanding clients’ needs and the way Maritz Global Events operates.”
