Maritz launches Maritz Global Meetings Network

Maritz Travel Company's Ben Goedegebuure will be leading on the new Maritz Global Meetings Network, which will consist of event agencies, PCOs and DMCs.

The Maritz Global Meetings Network will consist of a variety of in-country partners including professional congress organisers (PCOs), meeting planning companies and destination management companies (DMCs) to enhance Maritz's capabilities in offering regional knowledge and cultural solutions to clients.

Alongside Ben Goedegebuure, who joined Maritz earlier this year from the SECC in Glasgow, Eduardo Chaillo and Ping He will also lead the new initiative.

Goedegebuure, global general manager of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Maritz Travel Company, said: "Using an extensive network of in-country experts translates to collaborative, workable client programme. These hand-selected partners can help us create culturally responsive experiences by understanding clients’ needs and the way Maritz Travel Company operates.

"Our clients will benefit from scalable, global solutions informed with deep, regional knowledge provided by our reliable partners. The partnership approach provides a cost-effective way to help clients achieve exceptional global experiences."
