FCM Meetings and Events to replace cievents.
Natalie Simmons, the long-time leader of Flight Centre’s cievents business, will leave the company later this month as part of a shake-up which will see the operation become part of the company’s FCM corporate travel brand.
The integration with FCM Travel Solutions will “combine the unique expertise of cievents with FCM’s market-leading technology and extensive world-wide network,” the company said, promising that customers would benefit from global reach, seamless travel, meetings, group travel and event capabilities all under the FCM brand.
“cievents has been an industry leader in the MICE market for over 30 years and will continue to deliver the award-winning meetings and events it is known for under the new name of FCM Meetings and Events,” the company said.
The transition to the new name and structure will occur over the coming months, with Flight Centre telling clients that despite the change “many of the people and teams you know and trust remain”.
