Global Meetings Industry Day – Calgary
April 12 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
“Global Industry. Local Impact”
“Research into the impact of international conferences on a city’s economic development has evolved beyond easily measurable tourism-related metrics, like direct spend on hotels and restaurants. Today, there’s growing focus on the long-term benefits following a conference, both for local business and academic communities, as well as for visiting professionals and their organizations.” – Greg Oates. Skift.com. October 2016.
Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) brings together leaders from across the meetings and events industry to showcase the real impact that business meetings, conferences, conventions, incentive travel, trade shows and exhibitions have on people, business and communities. Meeting professionals across the world participate in the international day of advocacy, with more than 120 events held across 6 continents in 2017.
Come join the conversation with our host, Dave Kelly, and a panel of local experts on the importance of the meetings industry and the power it has to drive positive business outcomes, build strong communities and create valuable personal connections.
