Maritz Travel Company, which consists of Maritz Travel Meetings & Incentives and Experient has selected Worcestershire-based drp as a new partner for the UK in its global meetings network.
drp will offer the network its extensive UK regional knowledge and solutions to Maritz clients.
Maritz Travel Company established the Maritz Global Meetings Network as a collaborative approach to enhance its worldwide capabilities to deliver “exceptional meeting experiences for its clients on a truly global scale in all markets and sectors”.
“Becoming part of Maritz Global Meetings Network is a hugely exciting prospect for drp,” says group CEO Dale Parmenter. “This partnership is born of our two organisations’ desire to deliver exceptional services to the brands we work with and we feel strongly that since our two cultures and outlooks are so aligned, we are in an excellent place to do exactly that.”
The drp agency is now celebrating its 35th year in business and has a team of experts based in Leeds, London and a bespoke production studio in the Midlands.
“We are thrilled to welcome the team at drp to the Maritz Travel Company family,” said Ben Goedegebuure, global general manager of Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Maritz Travel Company. “Their proven reputation for providing top-notch meetings and events to clients in the UK will be a huge asset as we partner to create culturally responsive experiences to our collective clients.”
Maritz Travel Company president David Peckinpaugh said drp was chosen as a network partner “following a rigorous selection process”. CN understands the partnership deal emerging from the competitive tender is for an initial three years.
