PLANO, Texas, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Infinix Global Meetings & Events announced their involvement in the first-ever Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID). On April 14, 2016, they joined forces with the advocacy coalition Meetings Mean Business (MMB) to showcase the real impact that business meetings, conferences, conventions, incentive travel, trade shows and exhibitions have on people, business and communities.
Infinix Global Meetings & Events participated in GMID by hosting students from Collin College's International Meetings and Conventions class at their Plano corporate office. The Infinix staff delivered an informative presentation to provide the students with a deeper understanding of the career paths available within the meetings industry. Staff, including President Mike Roberts, represented various functions from sales, meeting planning, finance & business management. Infinix has executed meetings in 35 countries and 5 continents over the past 25 years and brings a unique perspective to the global reach of our industry.
"What a wonderful opportunity to have students in my International Convention/Meeting Management class visit Infinix Global's corporate office and learn from the team. The students gained valuable information and insight especially in dealing with the complexities of international meetings," said Linda Wee, Professor of Hospitality Management/Meetings & Events at Collin College.
GMID marks the expansion of North American Meetings Industry Day (NAMID), held earlier this year in the United States, Canada, Mexico and parts of Latin America. NAMID included 88 events across the continent as well as robust conversations online and 3.2 million social media impressions. Proclamations of support were issued by the governor of Wisconsin and mayors of Toronto, Buffalo and Washington, DC. A NAMID billboard was featured all day in Times Square and Caesars Entertainment "Turned the Strip Blue" in Las Vegas with NAMID logos and signage. In Mexico, a collaboration agreement was signed between the federal government, the tourism board and all 11 Meetings Industry Associations.
