The industry will be getting together – will you be there?

Get Local, 29-30 July, has confirmed over 140 exhibitors for this not-to-be-missed event, happening at ICC Sydney.

Get Local gives corporate end-users, in-house meeting planners, association meeting planners, EAs, PAs, and training companies, the opportunity to learn from and be inspired by Saxton Speakers, and hear from industry leaders who will share the latest research and announcements, all while catching up with friends and colleagues.

Get Local has received enormous support from the business events industry, with prominent leaders of the sector coming forward as Ambassadors and BESydney declared as Host City Partner as well as a swag of industry partners. These include:

Association of Australian Convention Bureaux, AuSAE, BECA, Business Events Australia, Professional Convention Management Association, Saxton Speakers, Site Australia and New Zealand, the Association Specialists, and more.

Donna Kessler and Gary Bender, co-founders of Get Local, say that ‘uncertainty’ isn’t a word that comes up during Get Local planning sessions.

“The local domestic industry needs this event, and it will go ahead. Get Local is a business events expo and a place to reconnect and do business, which we need more than ever in 2021,” Mr Bender said.

“2020 was the year of hibernation, 2021 is the year of collaboration and Get Local is the vehicle to make that happen.

“The power of person-to-person events is a proven fact. A comprehensive survey* of delegates attending five separate meetings, undertaken by Business Events Sydney and the University of Technology, found 90 per cent of delegates agreed that the face-to-face meeting exposed them to new and innovative ideas.”

This is your chance to reconnect and meet face-to-face with the industry, and see new venues, products, activities and services on offer from suppliers in our own backyard!
