Get Local will return to the ICC Sydney in June 2023 following this year’s successful inaugural event which saw more than 500 buyers, 150 exhibiting companies and a total of 1038 attendees.

Recognising the high volume of business meeting, incentive and event planners and product suppliers were currently experiencing will likely spill into the first quarter of 2023, co-founders Donna Kessler and Gary Bender said the move to mid-year should allow everyone to recharge before the next big push.

“By June 2023 we anticipate the next wave of new product offerings will be at their peak and it will be timely for suppliers to share with planners what is available,” Kessler said.

“We also anticipate that by this time business event planners will be looking for new and exciting product.”

Bender said Get Local 2023 will follow a similar format to this year’s event with an open layout, no pre-scheduled appointments and plenty of opportunities for networking.

“We have always recognised that planners are busy and don’t want to be locked into meetings with suppliers they simply don’t have business for which is why we again won’t be having hosted buyers and pre-scheduled appointments,” he said.

“What we will have is an event that is conducive to good quality business.”
