Ray Bloom, chairman, IMEX Group and Carina Bauer, CEO, IMEX Group penned a letter in support of North American Meetings Industry Day, taking place in the U.S., Mexico and Canada on April. 16.
The team at IMEX America celebrates today as the first North American Meetings Industry Day. We add our support to our industry colleagues in the United States and Mexico as they join Canada in this important advocacy day for our industry.
Today’s aim is to spread the word that meetings are vital to driving better business outcomes, and strengthening relationship and communities. That word comes not just from inside our industry, but outside too.
Last October IMEX America was honored to host a special live link interview with Bill McDermott, global CEO of SAP and a powerful supporter and advocate of the value of live events and large scale meetings.
We think Bill’s passionate take on the value and importance of what we all do speaks for itself, and lends compelling support to the aims of today and the industry overall.
Bill McDermott will once again be showing his support for the industry, this time in Europe, as the keynote of the IMEX 2015 Opening Ceremony.
We wish all in the North American meetings industry a great day.
Ray Bloom, Carina Bauer and the IMEX America team
