The Get Local expo has been forced to postpone for a second time, setting new dates in October.
Get Local will now be held on October 18-19, with co-owners Donna Kessler and Gary Bender saying they still have a “fierce determination to run a person-to-person event”.
“Given the most recent lockdowns in Greater Sydney and Melbourne, Get Local is now more important than ever for the business events community to reconnect with one another and at an appropriate time to do so,” they said.
“We are a resilient industry and we thank everybody for their ongoing support in such unprecedented times.”
The decision was made after discussion with key stakeholders, partners and government health experts.
“Many venue operators are experiencing very strong enquiries for late 2021 and 2022 which puts Get Local in October in a good position to help restart the sector,” they said.
