MCI Builds North American Presence

MCI has opened two new offices, MCI Vancouver and MCI Toronto, signifying a strong permanent presence for MCI in Canada and the group’s first operational offices in North America.

MCI in Canada will provide congress management services, event and meeting planning and destination management services to both corporate and association clients under the leadership of Ann Corbitt, based in Toronto.

The move builds on the establishment of an affiliate office in Toronto in December 2010, now fully rebranded as MCI Toronto. MCI Vancouver brings together a leading congress management company, Advance Group, with an event planning and destination management company, Destination Planners, members of the DMC Network. Destination management services will operate as Ovation Canada.

“We are very excited to bring together the foremost companies in the region, with excellent client relations and operational track records, to help us deliver the unique MCI value proposition to clients in Canada,” said Robin Lokerman, CEO Institutional Division, MCI, “This is our first step into North America, making us a truly global company. We look forward to continued expansion here.”

With the establishment of the two offices, MCI now has 47 offices in 23 countries globally.
