About Us


Launched in 1992, Meeting Media Company (MMC) is an award-winning publisher dedicated to the conference and meetings industries around the world. Its portfolio of magazines and publications, with an average circulation of 5,000, are widely read and respected by key decision makers within the international association, corporate, AMC, PCO and agency sectors as well as government institutions.

Based in Brussels, the capital of Europe, our company brings you quality content marked by substantive research and interviews with a Pan-European sensibility. Our editorial and sales team, small yet professional and efficient, is proud to apply their decades’ worth of expertise in keeping you updated and informed about the latest happenings and trends in the ever-changing meetings industry.

For more than 20 years, our company has been guided by the belief that the meetings industry deserves a trendsetting and content-driven medium to stimulate people's minds for better meetings.

Currently, our company publishes HQ Global, MIM Global, HQ and MIM Live Magazines, as well as a variety of destination reports and customised publications, which are available both in print and online.

Founded in 2002 and published six times a year, HQ Europe has served as an essential resource for association executives accompanied by customised supplements on specific destinations. In 2010, it was joined by a sister publication, HQ Asia Pacific, which is especially geared towards the Asian association community with a circulation of 2,500. Both HQ Magazines have established a long-standing partnership with UIA (Union of International Associations) and IAPCO (International Association of Professional Congress Organisers). In 2018, HQ Europe and HQ Asia Pacific merged into HQ Global. In 2019, HQ Magazines became partners with the Interel Group, the global public affairs and association management consultancy, and Kenes Group, one of the world’s leading Professional Conference Organisers (PCOs).

All our publication were completely redesigned in April 2016, and updated in 2018, to meet the ever-changing trends of the meetings industry.

The HQ EMIAM Association Innovation Center is born as a part of the new academic partnership between the Executive Master in International Association Management (EMIAM) of Solvay Brussels School and Headquarters Magazine.

MIM Europe, launched in 1995, was arguably Belgium’s first magazine devoted to the meetings and incentive travel industry. It has gained a reputation as the practical guide for the European corporate community with its coverage of industry news and in-depth analyses of meeting and incentive trends. Beyond content, MIM has developed long-term partnerships with EUMA (European Management Assistants), ECM (European Cities Marketing) and SITE (Society for Incentive Travel Excellence). In 2017, MIM became a fully digital magazine empowered by the new reading LIVE technology.

Meetings Media Company has been recognised for its accomplishments over the years by a string of awards, including “Belgian Meetings Industry Award” (2005), “MICE Personality of the Year 2007” from the Belgian Chapter of MPI (Meeting Professionals International), “Golden Meetings Industry Medal of the French Republic” and “Best Press Coverage of Brussels” from the Tourism and Convention of Brussels (BITC) (both in 2007), with the latest being “The Stickiest Green Article” award at the 2013 Sticky Awards organised by IT&CMA Asia and CTW Asia-Pacific.
