Global Meetings Industry Day 2016

Mark your calendars!

On April 14, 2016, leaders from across the meetings and events industry will come together to support the first Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID). GMID will showcase the real impact that business meetings, conferences, conventions, incentive travel, trade shows and exhibitions have on people, business and communities.

GMID marks the expansion of North American Meetings Industry Day (NAMID), held earlier last year in the United States, Canada, Mexico and parts of Latin America. NAMID included 88 events across the continent as well as robust conversations online and 3.2 million social media impressions.

Join the Atlanta hospitality community at White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. to celebrate our industry and network with your colleagues.  Several Atlanta organizations, including our PCMA chapter, are helping promote this event, and we would love to see a great turnout.  Registration is now open and was created and supported by SPIN Atlanta (Senior Planners Industry Network).  There is no fee to participate, and space is limited, so register today!
