The company was established in 1996 by Karen Crawford as a meeting planning company, catering primarily to government groups in the state of Florida. As the company grew through recommendations and word of mouth, our client base expanded nationwide and more services were requested. CMC began offering full-conference management and training in transportation modules, laws, rules and ethics. In 2001, we incorporated as Crawford Marketing and Consulting, Inc., and expanded again to add association management and leadership enhancement training and later, housing management to our scope of services. This continued expansion over the years is based on our ingenuity and creative drive to please our customers and provide a premium product within any budget parameter.
The dynamics of CMC are defined by our integrity, passion to please, attention to detail and our ability to accept and prevail over challenges that are common in this industry. We work behind-the-scenes, keeping you in charge of your event with the least amount of effort or stress. A second generation company, CMC has built itself on referrals from our many repeat customers and our ability to exceed their expectations while staying within their budgetary constraints. We have also partnered with carefully selected vendors to provide the best service at the best price for services we do not offer in-house. And we never forget—our job is to make you look good.
