Today we’re going to find out how Global Meetings Industry Day went virtual! In case you didn’t notice, GMID took place on the 14th of April. And due to the current situation, they took the right step and decided to make their event virtual. Much like many planners out there, Meetings Mean Business took their lemons and came up with an amazing virtual lemonade. Now that the entire events industry is learning step by step how to go remote, GMID presents itself as a great case study.
