MCI Group, based in Geneva, Switzerland, is the world's largest professional conference organiser employing 1,800 people in 31 countries as of April 2016.[1][2] The company also operates as an association management company, or AMC.[3][4]

MCI operates marketing-events firm Black Flower Agency; Don't Believe in Style, a cultural creative agency in southeast Asia; technical production firm Dorier; performance measurement services firm FairControl; public-affairs company Logos Public Affairs; destination management company Ovation DMC; and incentive-travel operator Hagen Invent.[5]

In 2015, the company acquired McLean, Va.-based Coulter Cos., an AMC, which has since been rebranded MCI USA.[6][7]

Roger Tondeur founded MCI in Geneva in 1987. In 2010, he handed over the reins to his son, Sébastien Tondeur, who now leads the company as CEO.[8]
