Twelve Texas Meeting and Events Industry Associations will come together to network and advocate for the Meetings & Events Industry. On Thursday, April 4th, #GMID19 events will be held across the globe to demonstrate the measurable impact that meetings have on businesses, economies and communities. Great things happen when people come together. Face-to-face interaction is the platform where deals are struck, relationships are forged and ideas are generated. That’s what Meetings Mean Business is all about: showing the real power of what business meetings, conferences, conventions, incentive travel, trade shows and exhibitions collectively do for people, businesses and communities.
Top 3 Reasons to Get Involved in Global Meetings Industry Day
1. To help raise the industry’s profile. GMID is an opportunity to engage with business leaders, elected officials, journalists and members of the general public to bring our industry story to the forefront. It’s a chance for us to come together on a single day and champion who we are and what we do with one loud and powerful voice.
2. To shine a light on the value we provide each and every day. The benefits our industry provides often go unnoticed. By recruiting individuals and organizations from every corner of the globe, we’ll use GMID to demonstrate the critical role that meetings play in developing personal connections, driving positive business outcomes and building strong local communities. Personal stories, tangible examples and proof points on the impact meetings have can go a very long way in making our case through the media, online and at events. Meetings mean jobs, education and training, cross-industry collaboration and billions of dollars in revenue. And we want everyone to know.
3. To make history. GMID will unite the meetings industry in a way that has never been done before. It will galvanize advocates – from the grasstops to the grassroots – and offer an opportunity to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
