For FMAV, Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) is so much more than the ultimate customer appreciation day.

It’s a day to celebrate the professionals who connect people in powerful ways through the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and stories to drive positive change. The passion, expertise, and creativity of meetings and event management professionals is integral to the success of every event, from intimate gatherings to worldwide congresses.

FMAV is proud to be a part of Canada’s Meetings Industry, providing the audiovisual and event technologies that help meetings and event professionals achieve their goals and create a connection.

Founded as an MPI-led initiative in Edmonton, 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the event, celebrated across the globe by many industry partners.

We’ll be in attendance at every GMID event across Canada, living and breathing the uniquely powerful impact that meetings and events have: for our business, our economy, and our society.  We hope to see you at one of these events (all times are local):
