GMID 2018 - Message from Chair, Heidi Welker

Today with the advent of advanced technology there are a variety of vehicles/channels for events and business meetings, but attendees still want to meet F2F to learn from the powerful influencers, experts as well as each other.

We believe that although Business Events contribute close to 30 billion dollars in direct spending annually and support over 341,000 well-paying jobs, our industry is fragmented and largely invisible to policymakers.

We believe that we need an advocacy voice that transcends individual interests, industry sectors and geographical locations and that informs those who shape and make policy.

Meetings Mean Business Canada’s vision is to become the single advocacy voice of the meetings industry in Canada through our relationship with TIAC, to communicate the economic and social value of face-to-face meetings to elected officials at all levels of government as well as stakeholders across the country and to thereby shape policy, legislation and investment to ensure our industry prospers.”

We currently have over 100 supporters on our website. Please visit our supporters page for more information and how you can help us make a difference!

Happy #GMID18
