GMIC Announces Partnership With PlannerWire.com


CHICAGO—The Green Meetings Industry Council (GMIC) announced a strategic online partnership with PlannerWire, the news, information and community website for meeting and event professionals, to promote awareness of the global importance of green meetings, provide social networking opportunities for members, and a platform for sharing information about the GMIC annual conferences. PlannerWire will feature GMIC within the association section of PlannerWire.com. This section will allow for important information for prospective members and links to GMIC’s membership page will be included. GMIC will have the opportunity to provide editorial and video content in the coming months along with featured webinars on PlannerWire.com.

In addition to the educational forum provided through PlannerWire.com, GMIC members will also have social networking access through PlannerMix.com to stay current with fellow members and share industry best green practices. The goal will be to extend the educational and networking experiences of the international green meetings community in an online format.

“PlannerWire fully supports the efforts of the GMIC,” says Keith Johnston, PlannerWire editor. “We believe that this organization has the opportunity to bring the green meetings movement to the mainstream while providing members the contacts and networking opportunities needed to survive in this down economy. They are an amazing resource for the meeting and event community. We hope that we are able to assist them in generating the membership and sponsorship opportunities needed to thrive and succeed.”

“GMIC understands the vital role of social networking and providing continual education for our growing membership base,” says Tamara Kennedy-Hill, GMIC executive director. “We are partnering with online media organizations like PlannerWire because we understand this platform is best suited for our global organization. Our members are the credible voice in the industry and desire engaging ways to share their experiences on a frequent basis. In addition to live conferences and events, we will provide connection and training for members through online formats.”
