Global Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchange
April 29-May 2, 2020
Arizona Grand Resort and Spa
The industry's only one-to-one event held in private suites
Global Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchange (GMITE) has been connecting the largest selection of high-volume meeting and incentive travel buyers with global suppliers for nearly 15 years.
At GMITE 2020, the opportunities for networking and growing your MICE business, whether you are a supplier or a buyer, are vast and offer the biggest return on your investment.
Held in partnership with SITE, the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence, GMITE brings fully hosted, high-volume North American incentive buyers and meeting planners who have a combined purchasing power of $1.5 billion, together with global suppliers for two and a half days of exclusive networking opportunities and pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings in private, luxury suites.
This is the perfect event to maximize your time out of the office via two days of focused meetings, exciting networking activities and receptions, valuable education, and fabulous meals, all while making lasting relationships with industry colleagues and suppliers.
Disasters, Regulations and the Environment: What’s Disrupting Incentive Travel Today
Keynote with Stephanie Harris, President of the Incentive Research Foundation (IRF)
Culled from the findings of the foundation’s new research study which is scheduled to be released in May 2020, the study explores the biggest disruptors facing the industry today and the risks associated with this disruption; from flight shaming to traveler safety concerns to the impact of growing loyalty. Attendees will also learn best practices from planners and suppliers for minimizing impact to their programs and on attendees.
