MPI Belgium Chapter is holding an event in conjunction with the Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) on April 14. Come to the center of Brussels for a morning workshop to grow your knowledge on sustainable purchasing & zero-waste communication, and an afternoon with talks from thought leaders in the field.
In 2016, MPI Belgium’s annual BE Conference is being held on the first ever Global Meetings Industry DayIndustry Day. The volunteer leaders have planned an exciting full day event where communication, interaction and sustainability are central. Attendees will leave #GMID16 Belgium with new ideas, inspiration and new contacts.
The morning of #GMID16 will cover a range of initiatives and ideas for zero-waste communication and purchasing policies in the form of a workshop. During the afternoon, our focus will shift to the topic of communication on a larger scale. Top speakers will address the audience on topics such as public speaking/presenting, stimulating conversation, cultural differences & diversity, gender intelligence and recovering from bad PR.
About the Global Meetings Industry Day
The Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) is fast approaching and builds on the success of the “North America Meeting Industry Day”. It’s for the first time that the Meetings Mean Business Coalition is working with partners all over the world to showcase the real impact that business meetings, conferences, exhibitions and more have on people, business and communities.
“When first hearing about GMID, I brought the idea of organizing an event back to the board,” said Pieter Allaerts, President of MPI Belgium. “Given the headquarters of Meeting Professionals International (MPI) is on the Board of Directors of the coalition, everyone in our Belgium Chapter agreed we had to do something special.”
