Maritz Travel, a provider of full-service meeting, event and incentive travel programs to corporate clients, has acquired Experient, a provider of meeting and event services to associations, tradeshows, corporations and the U.S. government.
“As a result of this deal, Maritz Travel will lead the industry in four key areas – corporate, association, tradeshow and strategic meetings management,” said David Peckinpaugh, president of Maritz Travel.
Maritz’s end-to-end service delivery model will be enhanced by Experient’s ability to provide additional full and select services (including registration, housing, site sourcing/contract negotiation and lead retrieval).
As a result, the combined companies will be able to tailor services that better align with clients’ specific needs. Clients also will benefit from 12 regional locations, deepened industry influence and the ability to serve clients across corporate, association, tradeshow and government markets.
