APRIL GLOBAL MEETINGS INDUSTRY DAY RECAP

 

This year’s Meetings Mean Business Global Meetings Industry Day on Thursday, April 6th was an extensive one day event for local meeting and event professionals.  Over 400 professionals gathered at the Minneapolis Convention Center to learn from local industry leaders on how Meetings Mean Business and hosting the Super Bowl represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for much of the Greater Minneapolis/Saint Paul market and the state of Minnesota.  

Above and beyond over 30 exhibitor booths, GMID also featured a panel discussion on what the Super Bowl has meant so far to the local & state hospitality industry, and how the region is collectively using it to catapult the local meetings & convention industry into a whole new playing field.  Panelists included Melvin Tenant, President & CEO of Meet Minneapolis; John Edman, Director at Explore Minnesota Tourism; and Michael Langley, CEO of GreaterMSP & Super Bowl Host Committee Executive Board Member.  Later in the day, GMID attendees were treated to breakout sessions featuring Super Bowl content such as Public Safety, Volunteer Engagement and the 10 days of engagement during the Super Bowl itself.   

GMID 2017 was truly a local tribute to the development of our Minnesota economy and the impending measurable impact that meetings have on businesses.
