On April 12, 2018, the Disney Meetings team, along with meeting and event-industry professionals from around the globe, came together to support Global Meetings Industry Day (#GMID18). The annual initiative was created to showcase the impact that meetings, conferences, conventions and incentive travel have on people, business and communities worldwide. 

Each day, thousands of our talented Cast Members at Walt Disney World ResortDisneyland Resort, and Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa play a part in providing excellent service to our Guests attending meetings, conferences, tradeshows and other special events held at our Disney Parks and Resorts. So, of course, they were eager to join in the celebration and share what this industry means to our Disney destinations.

Our regionally-based Cast Members located throughout the U.S. participated in industry events, gave back to their local communities and visited key landmarks in their respective regions to help advocate for the industry. From Western Canada all the way to Pandora – The World of Avatar, our team was excited to share and capture images representing how meetings mean business to them in a fun and unique way. 

Our event services teams also shared in the celebration all across our convention hotels and resorts, from Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Convention Center to Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort to Disney’s BoardWalk Inn Convention Center.

Even our resort sales and marketing teams based in Orlando, Florida had a lot of fun demonstrating their support for this globally-recognized day.
