Get Global tradeshow postponed

Get Global, an events industry tradeshow has announced it will postpone the event amid Coronavirus concerns.

The show brings exhibitors to Sydney to sell their destinations to Australian buyers who organise events overseas.

Co-owners Gary Bender and Donna Kessler (pictured) said the show was put on hold due to travel restrictions in place around the globe to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

“We know, as we work every day in the industry, that the impact of Coronavirus on international business travel has been severe and our exhibitors who sell international destinations are particularly impacted,” Mr Bender said.

“Therefore, rather than risking a lower than normal return for exhibitors, we have taken the decision to postpone the show until 2021,” Ms Kessler added. “We want the best for our exhibitors and buyers and this decision, while hard to make, is the best decision for all involved.”

Ms Kessler said she is looking forward to Get Global’s return to ICC Sydney on Friday 30 July 2021.

“We look forward to a great Get Global 2021 and the industry coming together post this unfortunate global incident.”
