Live! At The Battery
Come join us for our annual Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) celebration. Our event community is gathering for an afternoon of socializing, collaborating, and celebrating.
PCMA Southeast is proud to partner with IAEE SE, GSAE, SITE Southeast, MPI Georgia, and SPIN Atlanta for this event.
This year’s festivities will take place at one of Atlanta’s hottest destinations, Live! At The Battery. We’ve added a unique activity that will show the power of our community and give you a valuable takeaway. You won’t want to miss it.
Let’s show the world how the Atlanta event community comes together and rallies on our industry’s biggest day of the year.
Be there – LIVE! At The Battery.
Attendees will have a collaborative experience, focusing on how to make events more relevant and personal for our event participants. Using a variety of personas, GMID attendees will create strategies and tactics for several aspects of event planning, resulting in a valuable tool that will be distributed to all attendees who participate in the persona activity. Participants will round-robin their way through four (4) persona stations (15 mins each). Challenges will include discussions on marketing, education & learning, creating engagement, and social media. All ideas will be captured via a digital scribe
Following the event, all Persona Activity participants will receive the ideas collected at each of the Persona Stations. This tool will help kick-start their own planning and creative sessions. Our event sponsor, Shepard will compile all info from scribes, prepare the toolkit document and provide to PCMA SE so that it can be posted as a downloadable within 24 hours of the event.
Following the persona activity, we will all gather outside around our Commitment Wall for a group photo (and video) that we will use for sharing via social channels. Guests are then invited to write a commitment on the wall articulating how they will personally impact the meetings industry in the coming year.
