Inspire. Lead. Sustain

Atlanta is proud to be the first Affiliate Chapter of the Green Meeting Industry Council. We are a passionate group of meeting and event professionals committed to collaborating with the hospitality industry, advocating for a change in thinking, and educating others to further sustainable practices and reduce the environmental impact of meetings and events.  Our goal is to work with national leaders to build on our reputation as one of the greenest cities in America for meetings and events.

Our Mission

GMIC Atlanta seeks to promote sustainable practices within the Atlanta area meetings and hospitality industry in order to minimize the negative impact on the environment.  We will do this through education, networking, and the collaborative efforts of our stakeholders, balancing economic and environmental objectives.
