The GMID Virtual Event begins at 6 a.m. CDT on Thursday, April 12th, highlighting events starting in Europe and concludes at 6 p.m. CDT with broadcasts from North America.

This inaugural special event will demonstrate the power, reach and scale of the global meetings industry and feature interviews with industry leaders, behind the scenes content, CMP-eligible educational sessions and more. Thanks to the GMID Virtual Event sponsor, Mexico Tourism Board, participants will be able to access the free live stream at any time throughout the day as well as view an archived recording later.

Meetings Mean Business is an industry-wide coalition that showcases the undeniable value that business meetings, trade shows, incentive travel, exhibitions, conferences and conventions bring to people, businesses and communities. Meeting Professionals International (MPI) is the largest meeting and event industry association worldwide. The organization provides innovative and relevant education, networking opportunities and business exchanges, and acts as a prominent voice for the promotion and growth of the industry.

GMID convenes leaders from across the meetings and events industry to ensure that the media, elected officials, and the general public understand how meetings foster strong relationships, drive positive outcomes and support vibrant communities. Meeting professionals across the world participate in this international day of advocacy, with more than 120 events held across six continents in 2017. This year’s tagline is “Real results, real impact, all around the world.”
