Global Meetings Industry Day goes Virtual

By Kimberley King

I am very proud to be a part of the Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID).  This annual event takes place on April 14th and was created as an international forum for advocacy, awareness and celebration for the events industry.

Did you know?

“Business events are a thriving and vital part of Canada’s tourism industry that contributes $33 billion in direct spending, $19 billion in GDP and directly employs 229,000 people,” according to  Heidi Welker, Chair of Meetings Means Business Canada. 

This year, the impacts of the Covid-19 virus have been felt around the world. No event has been left untouched, we are all reeling from the effects that this global pandemic has had on our industry and communities.
