GMID Toronto 2018 Sponsors, April 12, 2018

A special thank you to the supporters of Global Meetings Industry Day Toronto - meet the teams.

Thank you to all of our sponsors of GMID Toronto. We couldn’t organize a successful GMID without your generous support. It was great to work with all our sponsors and the opportunity to meet their team. The GMID Committee asked our sponsors the question, "What do events mean to me?" Here are some of their responses:

Ottawa Tourism

As Canada’s capital, our goal is to provide meeting planners and delegates a truly unique Canadian experience that fits the needs of each meeting held in Ottawa and sets each convention up for success. Canadians will recognize themselves in Ottawa, and people from around the world will recognize Canada in Ottawa.

Every single business meeting Ottawa hosts is an opportunity to highlight our stellar convention spaces and beautiful off-site venues, strengthening our local partnerships with businesses across Canada’s Capital Region and positioning the meeting industry as strong participants in boosting the local tourism economy

Not only do business meetings enable face-to-face relationship building, they also allow us to showcase Ottawa’s appeal on the world stage as a unique, accessible and welcoming gathering destination that offers the complete capital experience, tells the story of Canada, and gets people talking. 


We believe that events exist to create a connection. We enjoy working with people who plan meetings and live events to help them achieve their business objectives and create that connection, whether it’s with employees, customers or a brand. We know that the ultimate goal of every event is to create that connection and we help do that in three ways:
  1. Understanding the unique goals and requirements of each event
  2. Providing the expertise and technology to create and optimize that connection
  3. And, execute flawlessly.
