Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce Celebrates Global Meetings Industry Day
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce joins Meeting Professionals International (MPI) in celebrating Global Meetings Industry Day on Thursday, April 12 at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel.
Global Meetings Industry Day brings together a number of industry professionals to showcase and highlight the economic value of trade shows, incentive travel, conventions, business meetings, conference and exhibitions to businesses and communities, including the Myrtle Beach area.
This event attracts meeting professionals from throughout the Carolinas, many of whom represent other regional entities throughout the United States. Festivities are being held in over 100 destinations on six continents to celebrate what this incredible industry brings to communities and local economies.
"We are excited that MPI has once again selected Myrtle Beach as the location to host their third annual Global Meetings Industry Day," stated Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. "The meetings industry is particularly important to our destination as it represents a significant revenue impact to our hotel and nonlodging partners throughout the year, but especially during our spring and fall shoulder seasons."
Global Meetings Industry Day will take place at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel located at 2101 North Oak Street, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. The informal reception will take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on April 12. The event is not open to the public; however, media are invited to attend.
