Celebrate the Power of Connection on Global Meetings Industry Day 2024

posted on April 4, 2024

This Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID), Meetings Mean Business Canada invites you to join a worldwide celebration of the undeniable impact and importance of business meetings, conventions, and events. Mark your calendars for a day dedicated to acknowledging the economic and social value these gatherings bring to our communities and economies.

GMID 2024 stands as a testament to the business events sector's role in generating significant economic revenue, creating jobs, and supporting local businesses across the globe. It's a day to reflect on how events, from international conventions to local meetings, fuel economic growth, forge business relationships, and drive community development.

This year, we spotlight the theme of connection. Business events are more than just meetings; they are the catalysts for collaboration, innovation, and progress. They bring together people from different backgrounds, industries, and countries, creating opportunities for sharing knowledge, sparking innovation, and building lasting relationships.

As we celebrate GMID 2024, let us also commit to advocating for the growth and support of the business events industry. It’s an opportunity to raise awareness about the vital role this sector plays in our economy and to work towards removing barriers to its growth.

We urge everyone, from city officials to businesses and residents, to reflect on and celebrate the positive impacts of business events. Together, we can continue to foster a world where meetings mean business, collaboration, and community development.

Join us in making GMID 2024 a milestone in recognizing and advancing the global meetings industry. Let's connect, celebrate, and champion the power of business events!
