Global Meetings Industry Day | Vancouver, Victoria and Okanagan!

April 4, 2019 @ 11:00 am1:30 pm PDT

Global Meetings Industry Day - April 4, 2019

The PCMA Canada West Chapter is pleased to announce three events in our region for Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) taking place on April 4, 2019. You are invited to join us in Vancouver, or remotely, as the Vancouver event will be broadcast live to our other event locations in the Okanagan and Victoria! Both of these events will include live moderators who will aid in the workshop portion of the event.

We’ve built a panel to address the group about the importance of face-to-face meetings, as well as talk about some big wins we’ve already made within the industry, and the issues that are facing the industry currently that we have the power to change.

Then we will open the subject to the attendees, have them discuss what’s important to them and what we should be advocating for, closing with feedback from the room.

In addition to the events taking place in Vancouver, Victoria, and Okanagan, the Vancouver event will also be broadcasted live. Follow this link to stream the event live, thanks to FMAV!
