Travelocity Business ranks among the top 15 travel agencies in North America, offering corporations a compelling combination of best-in-class automation and traditional travel management services. Meetings & Incentives (M&I), a full-service meetings management company, is ranked in the Top 25 by Corporate Meetings & Incentives and is responsible for more than $40 million in spend and more than 500 events annually.
M&I’s collection of primary services, now available to all Travelocity Business clients, includes:
* strategic meetings management;
* domestic and international sourcing, with services in Latin America and Europe;
* planning and registration;
* on-site services and production; and

M&I also provides detailed reporting designed to ensure that customers’ cost-avoidance, audit compliance, savings and event goals are exceeded.
