The first annual North American Meetings Industry Day (NAMID) will take place Thursday, April 16, 2015. This North America-wide day of advocacy will spotlight the substantial value derived from business meetings, conferences, conventions, incentive travel, trade shows, and exhibitions.
U.S.-based events will be led by the Meetings Mean Business (MMB) coalition. The Canada and Mexico chapters of Meeting Professionals International, in addition to other industry partners, will be driving events throughout Canada and Mexico.
“We are excited to be involved in such a meaningful day that unites our industry not only across the United States, but also across Canada and Mexico, communicating the critical role in connecting people and driving positive business results through face-to-face interaction,” said Michael Dominguez, MMB’s co-chair and senior vice president of corporate sales at MGM Resorts International. “Across the continent, we will demonstrate how meetings build personal relationships, drive positive outcomes, and support strong communities.”
