World-class hotels from across the globe will have a strong presence at Get Global this year, with more than a third (35 per cent) of all registered exhibitors coming from a hotel brand, and of those, nine are exhibiting for the first time.
The third instalment of the multi award-winning trade show will take place next month at ICC Sydney.
“It’s great to see so many hotels representing their regions this year,” said co-founder Gary Bender. “Our hotel partners have reported great success over the last two years, and it’s wonderful to welcome new exhibitors to the Get Global family.”
New hotels in 2019 include Belmond; Edwardian Hotels London; GHS Global Hospitality; Lotte New York Palace; Millennium Hotels & Resorts – Asia; Radisson Hotel Group; Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort & Spa; The Outpost Hotel Sentosa; and Trump Hotels.
Lisa Bacon, director of sales Asia Pacific at Edwardian Hotels London, said they are thrilled to be showcasing their venues at Get Global.
“This is the first time we’re exhibiting at Get Global,” she said. “We’re excited to have the opportunity to meet Australian and New Zealand buyers to show them the different offerings we have available and to launch our new hotel, The Londoner to the meetings and events sector.”
Returning for a third year, Andrea Werner, senior sales manager at One&Only Resorts, said there is a reason Get Global has been so successful over the past two years.
“It’s so easy, you don’t need to have an elaborate booth or multiple staff members to man it,” Werner said. “Get Global offers flexibility and allows us to meet with qualified buyers and to have as much time as required to update them on One&Only Resorts.
“It has resulted in leads and converted business. I like the informal setup that also allows to talk with industry colleagues and see what trends and destinations are in demand.”
Get Global will be held in The Gallery, ICC Sydney, on Friday 26 July.
