Travel Leaders Group has acquired UK-based YES (Your Event Solutions), a MICE business with global meetings and event expertise.
The addition of YES complements Travel Leaders Group’s growing presence in the meetings & incentive marketplace, and will provide both firms with additional geographic reach and industry expertise.
A full-service event provider, YES provides a range of corporate event solutions from individually-tailored venue sourcing, meetings and training events to executive conferences, large-scale exhibitions, product launch events and incentive travel programmes.
The firm also assists in client outsource planning for annual meetings, calendar training programs and fulfilment. Sue Gill, founder and CEO of YES, will remain in her current leadership role. YES will retain its brand and no major operating changes are anticipated at the company.
Travel Leaders Group CEO Ninan Chacko commented: “Bringing YES into the Travel Leaders Group family creates some exciting new prospects for both enterprises. Sue and her team at YES are innovative, enthusiastic and place a high priority on personalised service.”
Gill added: “We are so excited YES has been identified as the perfect partner to expand Travel Leaders Group’s MICE offering globally. Becoming part of Travel Leaders Group gives us a broader platform of service offerings to provide to our existing and new clients.
“This will include technology solutions, as well as corporate, entertainment and leisure travel offerings and expertise. Our team is excited about the opportunity to share expertise and to expand on the YES brand’s reputation in North America and beyond.”
