Global Meetings Industry Day - Austin, TX - April 6, 2017

What is Global Meetings Industry Day?

COLLABORATION! GMID is an opportunity to engage with business leaders, elected officials, journalists and members of the public to bring our industry story to the forefront. This is our second year of celebrating Global Meetings Industry Day in Austin, Texas. Last year we met at the Texas State Capitol and conducted a live streamed industry panel with some of the greatest minds in the industry. This year we are making history again with more phenomenal presenters and timely subject matters. As we collaborate once again with our meeting and event industry organizations, leaders and subject matter experts a bigger and better celebration is being created just for you!


Show your support and be a part of the worldwide day of GMID. Events will take place simultaneously around the world. This is an opportunity to come together on a single day and champion who we are, what we do and be heard with one loud powerful voice.

Immediately following the panel discussion will be our FIRST Taste of Texas! Two hours of Central Texas food, liquor, beer and wine. This foodie's delight is hosted by ILEA Austin Chapter! Live Music Entertainment during the Taste of Texas Reception is provided By Austin CVB.
