Get Global, the innovative event that brings together international destinations with local buyers, was once again crowned the winner of the hotly contested category ‘Exhibition of the Year’, at the NSW Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) 2018 Industry Awards.

Get Global took out the state MEA win for ‘Exhibition of the Year’ after demonstrating how the show is setting new benchmarks for the business events industry.

Gary Bender and Donna Kessler, Co-Founders and Directors of Get Global, 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. 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,” said Mr Bender.

“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,” said Ms Kessler.

Get Global provides event and incentive organisers with an opportunity to meet with new exhibitors from around the world, network with peers, share knowledge and do business, all conveniently on one day.


The MEA award win has coincided with the opening of buyer registrations, and the announcement of MC for Get Global 2019.
Andrew Klein, one of Australia’s most engaging and sought-after professional master of ceremonies, will host Get Global in July. Andrew’s interactive approach and success at last year’s event, has led to his MC appointment again in 2019.
