About BCD M&I
BCD M&I was founded on July 1, 2006, bringing together three legacy companies: WorldTravel Meetings & Incentives, Talking Point and TQ3 Events (a subdivision of TQ3 Travel Solutions Management Holding GmbH). These world-class organizations have enjoyed a long history with roots tracing back to the late 1980s in managing meetings and events for customers across the globe. BCD M&I is part of the BCD Holdings network and would be classified as a large company.
Because BCD M&I is a stand-alone division within a large company, we can offer our clients the best of both worlds. As part of the expansive BCD network, we enjoy the strength and leverage of a $14 billion travel management powerhouse but as a division, we've been able to maintain an intimate culture that continues to serve our clients well. Our key customers include Fortune 500 companies in a wide range of vertical markets, including pharmaceutical/healthcare, financial services, consumer products, manufacturing, etc. BCD M&I’s world headquarters is in Chicago. Globally, we employ over 400 full-time employees.
Business Approach & Philosophy
In today’s business environment, many companies are migrating toward enterprise meeting and event management solutions that mitigate risk and deliver quantifiable savings. At the same time, they still need to create dynamic and memorable event experiences in a responsible manner, and effectively engage, educate and motivate audiences through a variety of communication channels. BCD M&I is unique in that we are equally adept in providing event-level and enterprise-level solutions, as well as the engagement strategies that share information, inspire performance and drive business results.
Our core competency across the continuum of meeting and event management services includes: sourcing, planning, registration/attendee management, data management/reporting, group air fulfillment, on-site operations, communications strategy, print/electronic messaging, ad specialty sourcing, non-travel awards, virtual meetings, social media applications, enterprise technology, project accounting and ROI/ROE analysis.
