Meetings Mean Business "GMID Goes Virtual"

Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) was created to be an international forum for advocacy, awareness and celebration for the meetings & events industry. Each year, event professionals from around the world come together to raise the collective voice of our community.

In 2020, GMID will look very different. Based on advice from the World Health Organization (WHO), Health Canada and governments around the world, we are not encouraging live events for GMID. But we will still meet and come together - and we're going to break records doing it! 

You’re invited to be part of this grassroots attempt at breaking the Guinness World Record for largest virtual event. This interactive session is designed to provide attendees with a forum to have their voices heard while contributing to valuable industry research, all while connecting with each other.

Hosted by Meetings Mean Business Canada, India and the United States, this event will include our record breaking attempt, followed by a discussion of COVID-19 and its impact on our communities, work and families.

This FREE event will be webcast and open to all.

The webcast will be recorded and shared following the event.
