Global Mobility Solutions (GMS) recently hosted its annual forum, an event recognizing members of its Premier Alliance Network – an elite partnership of relocation service providers. Total attendance rose by over 20%, and client attendance tripled from the year before. Also, over 44% of attendees were first-time visitors to the forum. Forum20 was held on Thursday, February 6, at the Palomar Hotel in Phoenix. This year’s theme was “Doing Great Things Together,” and the forum focused on current trends and the future outlook for the relocation management industry.

“GMS is extremely proud of our superior network of partners,” said President Steven Wester. “It is due in large part to our partners that GMS continues to outpace the industry in growth, service, and client satisfaction. Our forum is a great venue to review current trends and discuss how the mobility industry will change in the future. We are also pleased to honor top-performing partners within our network, and extend support to worthy causes in the communities we all serve. Our Forum20 event was highly successful all around.”

Ending Hunger

Throughout the year GMS supports Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way for the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger.

Forum20 provided an opportunity for GMS and its Premier Alliance Network to show their shared commitment to end hunger in local communities. This year’s forum featured a raffle of prizes donated by GMS network providers. The raffle’s success resulted in a donation of over 70,000 meals to St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix.

St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, the world’s first food bank, is truly a community-based organization. Individual donors, corporate donors, and private grants help feed hungry individuals and families in our area. Serving 9 of Arizona’s 15 counties, we are committed to volunteerism, building community relationships, and improving the quality of life for Arizonans in need.

The official charity of Global Mobility Solutions is Move for Hunger. This non-profit organization works with van line companies across North America to collect unwanted and unopened food from people who are relocating and who do not want to pay to have their nonperishable food moved with them.

GMS donates to Move for Hunger every year at its events because it commits to not only moving people around the world, but to helping make it a better place.
