Hickory Global Partners, a global corporate travel alliance serving travel agencies, corporate travel departments and corporations, has launched an official commissionable referral program alongside MGME, its sister company and full-service meetings and events agency. This referral program will allow Hickory members to have their clients partner with MGME for corporate events but also pair travel and event sales to boost both businesses while earning additional commissionable income of at least 4%, offering significant potential for increased revenue.

With over four decades of history and experience in the corporate travel industry, Hickory serves corporate travel agencies, corporate travel departments and corporations. Its agents are already known for negotiating with leading hotels, airlines, ground transportation companies and ancillary partners to provide members with the best rates, incentives and opportunities. With the additional meeting and event planning offer, Hickory further demonstrates its expertise and commitment to members.

“This referral program will not only help grow both our members’ and prospective members’ business with their existing client base but also help them solicit new business,” said Chris Dane, President of Hickory. “We are experts in corporate travel, and this ability to fully partner with MGME through commissionable referrals is further helping us gain a complete product offering for our members and prospective members.”

MGME organizes various corporate events, including incentives, conferences and conventions, trade shows, exhibitions, product launches, virtual events and conferences, symposiums and more. It hosts over 500 events per year with experience in over 70 countries. Some clients include IATA, Anheuser-Busch, CVS-Aetna, GlaxoSmithKline, HBO, and Novartis. With Hickory members now able to offer event services through MGME, Hickory clients and partners will have access to in-house creative services, management and logistical support, event production, analytics and reporting contracting and vendor and budget management.

“Joining Hickory in this referral program has already proven to be very beneficial for our teams,” said Carvie Gillikin, President and CEO of MGME. “The ability to offer our partners both full-fledged event planning, as well as travel accommodations to and from these events through Hickory, has made both parties more well-rounded and knowledgeable about what our clients need.”

MGME’s mission is to create impactful experiences that facilitate collaboration and connection. They use their deep understanding of client’s goals, company culture, creative talent, and technical skills to deliver lasting experiences that inspire human connections.
