Get Global named MEA’s ‘Exhibition of the Year’ for second year straight

Get Global has been named ‘Exhibition of the Year’ at the National Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) 2018 Industry Awards in Brisbane last night.

Having also won the award last year, co-founders and directors of Get Global, Gary Bender and Donna Kessler, said they are proud of the accomplishments the show has achieved in such a short time.

“To win this esteemed award for a second time is phenomenal,” Bender said. “The support and dedication shown by the industry, and the team who have helped us get the event off the ground, has been outstanding.

“Donna and I took a risk when we started the show and it’s humbling to be validated by our peers. We look forward to seeing everyone in July.”

Judges recognised Get Global’s growth year-on-year, the diversity of exhibitors with over 150 international products represented, and the extremely high NPS received from exhibitors and delegates.

“Gary and I started Get Global out of a need to showcase more international product and to disrupt the regular cookie-cutter format of our industry shows,” said Kessler. “For Get Global to be recognised as ‘Exhibition of the Year’ twice is a monumental achievement.”

Get Global will be held in The Gallery, ICC Sydney, Friday 26 July 2019.
