The Meetings Mean Business Coalition announced “Meetings Matter” as the 2023 theme for Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID). GMID, to be held on March 30, is the international day of advocacy showcasing the value that business meetings, trade shows, incentive travel, exhibitions, conferences and conventions bring to people, businesses and communities.
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.

Moving Forward Together

Whether you’ve been in the industry for years or are still learning the ropes, we all need to understand what it takes to plan successful meetings as we move back to in-person events. Join us for this interactive panel discussion on how to effectively partner with hotel, CVB and other vendors to source and plan meetings and special events in the current climate. From negotiation and unexpected sourcing challenges to staffing issues and on site event logistics, planners will have the opportunity to speak to each other and an industry panel of experts on what preparing for in-person OR virtual/hybrid meetings looks like moving forward. Our panelists will include a variety of industry colleagues, from legal to convention services, so that you as a planner can be armed with best practices as you plan and execute meetings in 2023 and beyond.
