Upcoming Education Event

Global Meetings Industry Day — April 6, 2017 — New York, NY

MPI Greater New York and NYPCMA are uniting once again to gather leading visionaries for a series of engaging discussions on the future of meetings and how we can be empowered to shape the industry. Our opening panel will focus on the future of meetings and opportunities for impact that meeting professionals can have both in and out of the industry.

A series of flash point presentations by travel & meetings innovators will follow. Understand and be inspired by Gilad Goren (Travel+Social Good, Raleigh and Drake) Chris Kelly (Convene), Ryan Simonetti (Convene), and Howard Givner (Grass Roots Meetings & Events) as our speakers take us through the gaps they see within the industry and the ingenuity they applied to develop their platform or product. GMID will close with a panel discussion about innovation and strategic thought processes.

These global events will be sharing their day by using the #GMID17 hashtag and we encourage you to do the same.
