The MCI Group has partnered with a leading Nordic congress organiser and destination management company (DMC) in its latest step towards increasing its global network.


MCI announced the partnership with International Conference Services - Denmark (ICS) this week, saying it would help tap into the Nordic region's meetings, exhibitions and incentives market.


It follows MCI's recent partnership with Visit Houston, which was part of its aim to expand rapidly across North America.


Speaking of the new Nordic partnership, Thomas Wuethrich, MD at MCI Nordics, said: "ICS and MCI complement each other perfectly, and together the ambition is to continue striving, developing the company and driving innovation for all our clients.”


MCI said the partnership would help it leverage global best-practices and growth strategies while ICS provides local knowledge, connections and operational excellence.


ICS founder and CEO Per Ankaer will lead MCI Nordics institutional division as Director of Sales. He said: “Accessing the enormous pool of knowledge and experience available within MCI, will allow me to better serve our clients to help them reach their business goals."


MCI Nordics opened its first office in 1971 in Stockholm, and has followed up with local offices in Gothenburg and Copenhagen.
