There is no question about the demand of physical events, the industry is coming stronger than ever continuing with the safety protocols. In person business events are irreplaceable and there is not a better day than today to expose the value of our industry, business and professionals are encouraged to be part of this celebration and continue supporting this campaign.

Global Meetings Industry Day 2022 Philippines

GMID 2022 Philippines

Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) is the most important day that recognizes the value of the meetings and events worldwide. An industry celebration held across the globe by leaders and professionals, the significance of this day is to acknowledge the impact of meetings on the global economy.


The event industry has faced one of the biggest challenges due to the global pandemic and it has heavily affected global events. Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, Exhibitions (MICE) and Special Events have demonstrated the flexibility and adaptability against difficult times. 


A series of events will be gathered both virtually and in-person with the theme Meet Safe. GMID2022 validates that events do matter, event professionals are ready to meet safely with the highest safety protocols in place and there is not a better day than today to commemorate the real power of our industry and celebrate the successful return to face-to-face events.


The very first GMID took place on April 14, 2016 by The Meetings Mean Business Coalition (MMBC). MMBC was created in 2009 by the U.S. Travel Association with the purpose to showcase the value of business events.


Great things happen when people come together! We at M&SE encourage safe events to reactivate and promote our industry on the road to recovery.


The bottom line: To get business back, we must get back to meetings.
