Chicago. Philips, one of the world’s largest electronics companies, has chosen BCD M&I as its global partner of choice for strategic meeting management services. A phased implementation during the first quarter 2013 – beginning this January in North America and going on to include EMEA and Asia-Pacific – will result in BCD M&I taking over venue sourcing and contracting for the electronics giant from a variety of incumbent agencies.
“We’re delighted to take a next step in consolidating Philips Meeting Management Program supported by Cvent Technology and BCD’s market expertise,” says Peter Sijbers, Sourcing Specialist, Philips Group Procurement.
“It’s fantastic to be partnering with such a global business as Philips,” says BCD M&I Global President Scott Graf. “We’re very proud to have them on our client roster, and I know the whole team is excited to be working with such a household name.”
Philips joins a growing list of companies who can see the value of consolidating their meeting spend globally through a single preferred partner like BCD M&I. The agency has presence in 40 countries around the world and is uniquely placed to service the needs of major international customers while retaining a focus on quality, savings and innovation.
