Global Meetings Industry Day

Read our statement

Thank You


In light of COVID-19 meeting restrictions, travel guidance and social distancing policies, in-person participation in Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) was postponed. However, like so many of you, we didn't want the day to just pass us by.

Thank you to everyone who came together virtually and committed to supporting one another and the local communities who need us now more than ever. It was nothing short of remarkable to see 10,000+ industry professionals honor what would have been our fifth live Global Meetings Industry Day. 

Our goal is to share a new date for in-person advocacy as soon as possible. Given the continued impact of COVID-19, our top priorities are to help bring immediate relief to those struggling and pave the way for long-term recovery.

Even as meetings are cancelled, we have continued to see industry professionals going above and beyond to help address the COVID-19 crisis. As a coalition, we're committed to ensuring every story is told – every donation, every act of service, every public effort to ease the burden of this unanticipated and unprecedented situation. If you have not already, we hope you will commit to supporting your community in a way that makes sense for you and your organization.


We Stand Together


All of us are trying to manage through these unprecedented times, which have been especially hard on our industry. We are proud of the resilience and continued commitment that industry professionals have shown, and we stand together in navigating this crisis.

Thanks to our partners at PSAV for developing this powerful tribute.
