The Meetings Mean Business Coalition (MMBC) was created in 2009 by the U.S. Travel Association to showcase the incredible value that business meetings, travel and events bring to the U.S. economy.

Meetings Mean Business brings together the entire industry.  Its members span all facets of the meetings industry, which have come together behind a common goal: providing the resources, tools and information to show the real impact the industry has on businesses, economies and communities.


Global Meetings Industry Day

MMB has spearheaded the second annual meetings industry day, planned for April 14, 2016.  Leaders from across the meetings and events industry will come together to support 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.
