Global Meetings Industry Day

Global Meetings Industry Day

On March 30, the industry came together to celebrate Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID)—an international day of advocacy showcasing the undeniable value that business meetings, trade shows, incentive travel, exhibitions, conferences and conventions bring to people, businesses and communities.

The #GMID2023 theme was #MeetingsMatter. The “Meetings Matter” theme spotlighted the economic and societal importance of face-to-face meetings, a critical message to share with elected officials and business leaders which underscores the multi-layered benefits that come from meeting in person.

This year, our activation broke records. Across the country and around the world, thousands of organizations came together to highlight the importance of the meetings industry. View our recap deck.

Save the date: It's never to early to start preparing for future activations! Mark the next two GMID dates on your calendar:
