Get Global was once again named ‘Exhibition of the Year’ at the NSW Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) 2018 Industry Awards after winning it the year before with its inaugural event.
Co-founders and directors Gary Bender and Donna Kessler said the win demonstrates the industry’s thirst for new and different ways of doing business.
“We couldn’t be prouder of the show we’ve built and the direction we’re heading in,” they said.
“To be recognised for the innovation we have delivered, and the real outcomes for our customers is terrific.
“As a new show, we’ve faced challenges and overcome hurdles, however, to have industry recognition for our team’s dedication and hard work is very encouraging and a clear sign that we are on the right track.
“We are busy people and so are our buyers, so we bring unprecedented flexibility in a single day show. Our aim has always been to disrupt and exceed industry expectations, we are leading the way and are proud to be recognised for our efforts.”
The MEA award win has coincided with the opening of buyer registrations, and the announcement that Andrew Klein will again be the MC for Get Global 2019, which will be held in The Gallery at ICC Sydney on 26 July.
