Vision 2000 Travel Group has finalized its agreement with Thomas Cook North America to acquire its meetings and incentives business, which trades as SM+i.
The acquisition is a perfect fit for Vision 2000 which has an extensive and diverse division specializing in upscale meetings and events. As part of Vision 2000, SM+i will spearhead the corporation’s incentives division.
Under the terms of the sale, SM+i will continue to operate under that name and will remain, for the foreseeable future, in the Thomas Cook offices in central Toronto. Ellie MacPherson will remain at the helm in her new role as senior vice-president, Strategic Meetings + Incentives (SM+i), and become an integral part of the Vision 2000 executive team.
“This really is a great match for us,” Brian Robertson, COO of the Vision 2000 Travel Group said in the release. “The calibre of business that SM+i has is a wonderful complement to ours, and we look forward to welcoming their talented and experienced staff to Vision 2000.”
