Global Meetings Industry Day

APRIL 11, 2024

Meetings and events drive the travel and tourism industry in The Woodlands. As the Official Destination Marketing and Management Organization of The Woodlands, Visit The Woodlands takes the lead in advocating and spreading awareness of the importance of group travel to our local and regional economy.


Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) is an international day of advocacy showcasing the undeniable value that business meetings, trade shows, incentive travel, exhibitions, conferences, and conventions bring to people, businesses, and communities. The industry will come together on April 11, 2024, to celebrate Global Meetings Industry Day and showcase why #MeetingsMatter to attendees, organizations, communities, businesses, and our economy.
