Which companies are the biggest spenders on corporate get-togethers?
Get up close and personal with the CEOs of some of the world’s biggest companies and ask them about the perks and benefits of getting togethers.
You can ask them the questions about how they spend their time, whether they stay in touch, whether or not they have a family, and how much money they have in their pockets.
Companies like Facebook, Microsoft, Oracle, Intel, Microsoft Research, Google, IBM, Yahoo, Uber, Airbnb, Airbnb Payments, Spotify, Amazon, and Airbnb have all been asked to submit data about their annual corporate get up-close-and-personal events.
