What is GMID?

Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) is a global meeting initiative driven through the Meetings Mean Business partnership. Meetings Mean Business is an industry-wide coalition to showcase the undeniable value that business meetings, trade shows, incentive travel, exhibitions, conferences and conventions bring to people, businesses and communities.

By rallying industry advocates, working with stakeholders, conducting original research, engaging with outside voices and more, the coalition brings the industry together to emphasize its importance. Comprised of over 60 members, the coalition unites the meetings industry with one strong and powerful voice. In 2016, MMB partners hosted over 100 events in more than 30 countries in all corners of the globe to showcase the real power of meetings, events, conventions, exhibitions and more.
