i By April 2, 2020 No Comments

Event professionals around the world are invited to virtually celebrate Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) and help it break a Guinness World Record on Tuesday, April 14, 2020.

Face-to-face events planned for GMID, the industry’s annual advocacy and awareness celebration, have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Meetings Mean Business Canada, Meetings Mean Business U.S. and Meetings Mean Business India have partnered to host a free virtual celebration—#GMIDGoesVirtual.

They are also challenging the industry to break the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Audience for a Virtual Conference.” In order to qualify, 15,000 people must participate in the GMID 2020 conference for 30 minutes. Register yourself and your team HERE.

The attempt to break the Guinness World Record will be followed by a panel discussion put on by Meetings Mean Business Canada.  This discussion will explore how COVID-19 is impacting the industry as well as the communities, work and families of event professionals. Panelists will include representatives from government, Business Events Canada, hotels, convention centres and the planning community.

The webcast will be recorded and shared following the event.
