(GMID) Global Meetings Industry Day  Whether you were one of the 276 who joined us face-to-face at the Chelsea Hotel Toronto or tuning in through our Live Stream, Global Meetings Industry Day, held on Thursday, April 6, did not disappoint. 

The day started bright and early with a hot breakfast, familiar faces, and some new ones too! We connected via live stream with close to 100 attendees at the London Convention Centre in Ontario to share our day and celebrations. Our Keynote, Humanitarian Stephen Lewis, dug deep when he took the stage to discuss hard hitting global issues such as poverty, war, epidemics and more. Then, our esteemed panel carried on the conversation, giving us their insights on topics such as policies and procedures and food waste at events. 
Global Meetings Industry Day has three main objectives: to discuss our future, promote our industry, and realize the benefits we have on the economy. Congratulations to our Influence Award recipient, Metrolinx Union Pearson (UP) Express, for supporting our industry by providing us safe and dependable transportation in order for us to meet Face-to-Face!
