On March 30, the industry will come together to celebrate Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID)—an international day of advocacy showcasing the undeniable value that business meetings, trade shows, incentive travel, exhibitions, conferences and conventions bring to people, businesses and communities.

The #GMID2023 theme is #MeetingsMatter. The “Meetings Matter” theme will spotlight the economic and societal importance of face-to-face meetings, a critical message to share with elected officials and business leaders which underscores the multi-layered benefits that come from meeting in person.

Visit our GMID 2023 toolkit, which includes a social media guide, ideas for engagement, fact sheets, a video, graphics and more.
