Leaders from the meetings and events industry will come together April 6, 2017 to support Global Meetings Industry Day with a worldwide series of advocacy events and rallies to showcase the power of meetings, conventions and exhibitions.

Last year, partners of the Meetings Mean Business (MMB) coalition hosted over 100 events in more than 30 countries to bring attention to the meetings industry and help elected officials understand the role that meetings play in the global economy.

This year, the MMB coalition has created a web page with materials and resources to help organizations plan their own GMID event. MMB encourages GMID participants to promote their local events on social media using the #GMID17 hashtag.
