Global Meetings Industry Day 2017

On April 6, 2017, leaders from across the meetings and events industry will come together to support the second annual Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID). Led by the industry advocacy coalition Meetings Mean Business (MMB), GMID 2017 will continue to showcase the real impact that business meetings, conferences, conventions, incentive travel, trade shows and exhibitions have on people, business and communities. “

GMID 2017 follows the first-ever international day of advocacy, held earlier this year in more than 30 countries and across five continents. GMID 2016 included 115 events in more than 80 locations as well as significant conversations online with more than 40 million social media impressions.

Several tools and resources are available to aid 2017 GMID planning, including talking points, FAQs, the 2017 logo and a “how to get involved” document. Throughout the planning process, MMB will continue to roll out new collateral in support of GMID 2017.
