Get Global owners Gary Bender and Donna Kessler are launching a new expo focused on domestic business events, Get Local.
The duo say they will take inspiration, ideas and show format knowledge from their award-winning international destination show Get Global to create an affordable and dynamic event experience for local buyers and suppliers.
“We, like our entire industry, have felt the impact of COVID-19 in our day-to-day businesses, so we want to do something concrete to help the industry kick-start again,” they said.
“Get Local gives us a chance to re-connect and inspire the business events industry in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. By July 2021, we will be well and truly ready to see our friends and colleagues and get back to business.”
Get Local will take place on Friday 30 July 2021 at ICC Sydney.
“There has been industry pressure for some time for a local show and now is the right time to push ahead with our plans,” they said.
“There is so much incredible product available and conferencing is a key driver of our economy, it’s time to focus on what we have in our own backyard.
“We welcome the industry to get behind this new initiative and take part in what will be a new and exciting platform. Unique sponsorship and partnership opportunities will be available.”
