About Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID)

Leaders from across the meetings and events industry are coming together to support the first GMID. Industry partners will drive events all around the world during a day of advocacy to spotlight the substantial value derived from business meetings, conferences, conventions, incentive travel, trade shows and exhibitions have on people, business, communities and economies. Be a part of GMID by Dressing for Industry Success (with a touch of blue)!


Why Dress for Industry Success? 

  1. Help raise the industry’s profile. It’s a chance for the meetings industry to come together on a single day and champion who we are and what we do with one loud and powerful voice.
  2. Shine a light on the value we provide. The benefits our industry provides often go unnoticed. But meetings play a critical role in developing personal connections, driving positive business outcomes, building strong local communities and bolstering the economy. Meetings mean jobs, education and training, cross-industry collaboration and billions of rands in revenue. And we want everyone to know!
  3. Make history. GMID will unite the meetings industry in a way that has never been done before. It will galvanize advocates – from the grasstops to the grassroots – and offer an opportunity to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. #GMID16

Why ‘with a touch of blue’?
