It’s time to meet face-to-face

Gary Bender and Donna Kessler, owners of Get Global, today announced the launch of their inaugural domestic business events show called Get Local, which will take place on Friday 30 July 2021 at ICC Sydney.

Celebrating Australasian destinations and suppliers, Get Local will take inspiration, ideas and show format knowledge from their multiple award-winning international destination show Get Global, to create an affordable and dynamic event experience for local buyers and suppliers.

“We, like our entire industry, have felt the impact of COVID-19 in our day-to-day businesses, so we want to do something concrete to help the industry kick-start again.”

Co-founders Gary Bender and Donna Kessler believe the power of relationships and connecting with each other face-to-face is the essence of our industry.

“Get Local gives us a chance to re-connect and inspire the business events industry in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. By July 2021, we will be well and truly ready to see our friends and colleagues and get back to business,” said Mr Bender.

Get Local will be a COVID-safe event adhering to all state and federal requirements in place at that time.

Get Local will showcase metro and regional suppliers and activities, giving direct access to leading event, meeting and conference organisers with a view to support the MICE industry in 2021 and beyond.

“We create a fun day out of the office where the focus is on networking and learning opportunities. There has been industry pressure for some time for a local show and now is the right time to push ahead with our plans. There is so much incredible product available and conferencing is a key driver of our economy, it’s time to focus on what we have in our own backyard. We welcome the industry to get behind this new initiative and take part in what will be a new and exciting platform. Unique sponsorship and partnership opportunities will be available,” said Ms Kessler.
