On April 14, 2016, our Disney Meetings team, along with meeting and event-industry professionals from around the globe, came together to support the first Global Meetings Industry Day (#GMID16), which was created to showcase the impact that meetings, conferences, conventions and incentive travel have on people, business and communities. 

Our talented Cast Members from around the world at Walt Disney World ResortDisneyland ResortAulani, a Disney Resort & SpaDisneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort were eager to join in the celebration and share what meetings and events mean to our Disney destinations.

Even 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 New York’s Times Square, to San Francisco’s Bay Bridge to Walt Disney’s birthplace in Chicago, IL, our team was excited to share and capture images and represent how meetings mean business to them in a fun and unique way.
