MMBC chair Clark Grue kicks off the year with a new video series outlining the coalition's key activities for Q1 2021.
Advocacy work: As the business events community faces ongoing lockdowns and other challenges, MMBC continues to advocate to all levels of government with key messaging:
Face-to-face events bring business leaders together to create transactional opportunities that drive the economy, jobs, and other growth opportunities.
The business events sector has decades of proven expertise in hosting controlled, safe gatherings, including sophisticated delegate tracing systems during and after events.
The business events community is ready and willing to assist governments in their efforts to rebuild Canada's economy.
MMBC is a positive partner with provincial governments to help develop protocols to reopen safe and healthy business events.
MMBC supports the efforts of provincial leadership groups as they advocate to reopen business events at the regional level.
MMBC will communicate positive provincial initiatives to decision-makers in Ottawa as part of our ongoing federal advocacy work.
Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID), April 8, 2021
Our online, Canada-wide event will focus on the topic of Reopening Business Events safely and in a controlled fashion.
MMBC will extend personal invitations to high-level federal and provincial leaders as well as industry stakeholders.
Key discussions include: Why business events are crucial to economic recovery in all industries; how our sector is supporting its hardest-hit members at this time; and protocols and ideas for reinstating safe events that will help drive Canada's economy forward.
