BCD Meetings & Events has added G-Concept, part of GIS Group, in Taiwan to its global partner network. The network encompasses meetings and events companies around the world. BCD M&E has added partners in many countries in the last three years, including: Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Russia, South Africa, Romania, Hungary, Israel, Spain, Italy, Poland, Greece and Colombia. Scott Graff, global president of BCD M&E, said that when the company looks to grow specific markets it makes a strategic decision to either expand its wholly-owned operations or partner with local businesses. When a partnership with a local organization is chosen, he said, it is because “we value their high level of industry expertise and their understanding of local business nuance.” According to the announcement, BCD M&E will continue to expand its network in markets throughout the world this year.
