Join us for a webinar to discuss best practices to reduce event waste, "Best Practices in Waste Management for Events".


Sustainability Survey

A multi-phase study commissioned by GMIC is being conducted by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) on sustainability practices titled An Analysis of Corporate Brands: How Corporate Brands Use Live Events to Underscore Sustainability Practices.‬ 

Please take a few minutes to participate so that we may create a sustainable events planning benchmark against which firms can compare their own planning, and provide guidance for planners and suppliers for new opportunities in sustainable meetings and events.


GMIC, A Council of the Convention Industry Council

Green Meetings Industry Council (GMIC) has become a Council of the Convention Industry Council with a specific charter and mandate to advocate and educate around sustainability in the meetings and events industry operating under the direction of CIC’s board. 

The passionate supporters that provide much of GMIC’s current membership base will be a valuable asset in taking on local issues and offering educational opportunities for fellow supporters.  GMIC individual and business members will transition to individual supporters and sponsors, and local GMIC Chapters will be invited to continue their local communities through supporter “networks.”  This announcement was made to GMIC members on a special webinar on February 24. Following is a copy of the  webinar.
