Global Meetings Industry Day 2016 in Pictures

There are as many ways to celebrate Global Meetings Industry Day as there are ways to hold a meeting. On April 14, the worldwide meetings and convention industry spoke with one voice through rallies, panel discussions, proclamations, seminars, online discussions, photo opps, tweets, and more to showcase the impact of face-to-face meetings on businesses and communities. As Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton put it as he issued a city proclamation to commemorate GMID, “Meetings mean business because they bring knowledge-industry leaders and job creators to the front doorstep of our city.” Congratulations to the Meetings Mean Business Coalition and all the industry associations, convention bureaus, educators, hospitality executives, and meeting professionals who worked on a successful GMID 2016.
