Maxvantage, the alliance between American Express Meetings & Events and Maritz Travel, established in 2009 to offer strategic meetings management services, is being dissolved. According to a spokesperson for American Express, the partnership will be discontinued in May. When asked for the reason behind the breakup, the spokesperson said the move "reflects the growth trajectory of the two companies and the evolution of strategic meetings management that has taken place since the alliance was established." Both firms will continue to offer strategic meetings management services to clients.
