AACB signs up to support Get Local

The Association of Australian Convention Bureaux (AACB) is the latest organisation to partner with the upcoming trade show Get Local.

“The success of Get Local is in everyone’s interest as a key platform to restart the business events industry,” AACB CEO Andrew Hiebl said.

AACB’s convention bureaux members will come together to exhibit at Get Local, representing some 1,800 business events businesses across the supply chain.

“Australia’s convention bureaux represent tourism and events operators across Australia and Get Local will be the first opportunity to reconnect with clients in-person at an industry-wide event since the shutdown of the business events industry a year ago,” Hiebl said.

“Business events are a key driver of our economy and opportunities that emerge from Get Local will play a vital role in recovery as confidence grows and we see the return of business events right across Australia.”
