ICC Sydney to host inaugural Get Local business expo

Get Local format of Get Global, a highly successful industry exhibition focussed exclusively on the international market

Business events expo Get Local, will be holding its inaugural event face-to-face, at ICC Sydney from July 29-30, 2021.

Get Local will provide event managers, PCOs, meeting planners and incentive organisers the opportunity to learn more about the domestic offerings across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.

The open floor plan of Get Local will encourage trade visitors to plan their own day and connect with the suppliers they want to see. There will be venues, hotels, bureaux, AV, technology and other suppliers to the business events sector across Australasia present.

Meanwhile, the show’s partners include Destination New South Wales (NSW), Hunter Valley, Central Coast and the Orange region.

Gary Bender, co-founder of Get Local, said in a press statement that the domestic industry “needs this event”, and it will be a place to “reconnect and do business which we need more than ever in 2021″.

“The power of person-to-person events is a proven fact. A comprehensive survey, undertaken by Business Events Sydney and the University of Technology, of delegates attending five separate meetings found 91 per cent of delegates agreed that the face-to-face meeting exposed them to new and innovative ideas.

“Businesses need ideas and to innovate, and it can’t continue to be done in isolation,” added Donna Kessler, the other co-founder behind Get Local.

“We know that the recommencement of business events will be crucial in rebuilding and supporting the industry, and the NSW Government is focused on making sure event planners know about the many great locations and venues that regional NSW has to offer,” said NSW minister for jobs, investment, tourism and Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres.

Registrations are now open for Get Local.
