Today is the inaugural North American Meetings Industry Day (NAMID). The initiative highlights the substantial value derived from business meetings throughout the continent.
According to a study by PWC, the meetings industry contributed more than $280 billion to the U.S. national economy and put another $88 billion back into the economy through federal, state and local taxes in 2012. Ashfield Meetings & Events are pleased to say that we have been part of this.
As a global events agency there is an obvious economic impact of the events we manage on behalf of our clients. In 2014 we managed over 600 events in North America bringing together over 39,000 attendees. It is fantastic to create a positive legacy on the US economy and host destinations.
What interests us most is the outcomes of the events we deliver. As a specialist healthcare event agency we devise events that inform and educate healthcare professionals. By providing face to face learning environments we are enabling interactions and facilitating new and innovative products to market that can ultimately have a profound impact on patient outcomes and can change people’s lives.
