Global Meetings Industry Day

April 8, 2021 | #GMID21

Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) is an international day of advocacy that showcases the undeniable value that business meetings, trade shows, incentive travel, exhibitions, conferences and conventions bring to people, businesses and communities. Join us as we celebrate the importance of the meetings industry to Huntsville/Madison County's economy and quality of life.

Meet Safe

This year, the theme of Global Meetings Industry Day is Meet Safe, recognizing the industry’s top priority of operating meetings and events with health and safety top-of-mind. Meeting and event industry professionals know that planning and hosting meetings and events with health and safety top-of-mind is essential to the industry’s recovery. GMID 2021 will spotlight for local businesses, lawmakers and the media the precautions the industry is taking to keep everyone safe and ensure productivity as well as the incredible value this industry has for global economic recovery.
