In February 2015 we announced in our News Section the selection of Congrex Switzerland as partner in the Maritz Global Meetings Network. The network is conducted by Maritz Travel Company, which consists of Maritz Travel Meetings & Incentives and Experient. Maritz’ Global Meetings Network welcomes 25 global partners representing nearly 60 countries. Congrex Switzerland is proud to serve as Meetings Experts for Switzerland, offering extensive regional knowledge, capabilities and cultural solutions to Maritz Travel Company’s clients.
Maritz Travel Company chose Congrex Switzerland as a Maritz Global Meetings Network partner based on its breadth of knowledge and expertise within Switzerland, as well as its reputation of quality, reliability, financial stability and service excellence. In addition, Congrex Switzerland has extensive Professional Conference Organiser and project management capabilities within the association, corporate, tradeshow and government markets where Maritz Travel Company provides services.
Ben Goedegebuure, Global general manager of EMEA for Maritz Travel Company, said: “Our partners are indispensable in helping us create culturally responsive experiences for our clients – whether corporate, association or tradeshow.
“Not only will we rely on them to provide unique regional expertise, they can help us operate more effectively and efficiently on behalf of our clients while helping us navigate local practices, languages cultures and business ethics, and ensuring we are complying with governmental regulations, taxes and currencies.”
