Experient – A Maritz Global Events Company

In April 2012, Experient joined forces with Maritz Travel to expand our exceptional event solutions for our clients.

Together, Experient and Maritz Travel make up Maritz Global Events, one of the largest, most respected event management companies. We are a true leader in the meetings and events industry.

Our History

Experient’s roots run deep in the event industry. Our heritage of excellence, creativity, integrity and accountability is well known and respected.

Experient (then known as Conferon) was founded in Northeast Ohio in 1970 by Bruce Harris. At the time no one had ever heard of a professional meeting planner, so Harris defined the market and helped turn meeting planning into a profession.

As one of the first meeting planning and event management companies, Conferon later completed a series of acquisitions to bring best-in-class thinking and new offerings to their clients, including Cramer Event Management, The Bellwether Group and Jackson Marketing Group.

In May of 2003 Conferon merged with Frederick, MD-based ExpoExchange and became Conferon Global Services.

ExpoExchange (created from the merger of three entities - Galaxy Information Services, International Travel Service (ITS), and the e-products division of 3MC – Third Millennium Communications), was well known for its industry leading event management technology.

When ExpoExchange and Conferon united to become Conferon Global Services, it instantly became the most powerful event management company in the event industry, offering award winning meeting and event planning, tradeshow and travel services.

The company rebranded as Experient in 2006.
