April 14 is Dedicated to Meetings Professionals – Let’s Celebrate #GMID16

Posted by Kevin Iwamoto on 04/07/2016

< Back to Blog

On April 14, professionals from across the meetings and events industries, led by Meetings Mean Business, will come together to support the first Global Meetings Industry Day (#GMID).

The goal for GMID is to showcase the significant impact that business meetings, conferences, conventions, incentive travel, trade shows, and exhibitions have on people, business, and communities.

GMID means that our industry – which is so vital to country’s GDP and economic health – is finally getting the recognition it deserves. It’s a celebration of who our industry is and what we do for the world’s economic and social health – we bring people and commerce together.

The business and science of meetings and events generates jobs, supports local merchants and suppliers, pays government taxes, supports global collaboration – I could go on and on. The numbers associated with meetings and events business revenue and spend is in the billions.

We matter, and it’s about time that all government officials recognize our collective contribution to the world economy. We all should take the time to celebrate, shine the light on ourselves and give each other a high five. Meetings and events truly enable the world to socialize and collaborate.

Industry folks from all sectors are encouraged to host a celebration or incorporate a GMID component into their own scheduled events during the week of April 14. Everyone is encouraged to promote GMID via social media – so take photos at your events, and post tweets, share on Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s celebrations and promotions on social media – you can be on the lookout for my #GMID16 posts!

Spread the word! Share this blog with your colleagues to get them excited about #GMID16.
Happy GMID everyone!
