On 8th April, 2021, Meeting & Events professionals will be coming together to showcase the undeniable value that business meetings, trade shows, incentive travel, exhibitions, conferences and conventions bring to people, businesses and communities.
The Africa MICE Summit has partnered with Meetings Professionals International (MPI) Africa, Africa Tourism Association (ATA), Meetings Mean Business Coalition and Cadazo Consulting Group to anchor the Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) celebrations in Africa.
We are look forward to coming together this year to demonstrate the unwavering value of our industry with leaders in business, government and the media. Showcasing our industry’s value has never been more important, particularly at the national and local levels.
The theme for this year’s Global Meetings Industry Day events is #MeetSafe. As you all know as industry professionals, planning and hosting business meetings, trade shows, incentive travel, exhibitions, conferences and conventions with health and safety top-of-mind is essential to the industry’s recovery. GMID 2021 will spotlight the precautions that we and our partner organizations are taking to keep everyone safe and ensure productivity, as well as the incredible value of this industry and its importance for nationwide economic recovery.
The key objectives for this event include:
- Reiterate the critical contribution of the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences & Exhibitions industry to the social and economic development of African nations.
- Provide visibility for Africa’s MICE Industry and provide a platform for continental dialogue towards a more proactive investment in the safe recovery of the industry.
- Highlight the opportunity for attendees to mark the 2021 Africa Meetings Industry Day (AMID) which will be celebrated alongside the Africa MICE Summit & Awards in Nairobi, Kenya on 9th – 11th September, 2021.
