This week sees the start of a new approach to MICE industry tradeshows. Get Global launches at the International Convention Centre, Sydney this Friday and will see over 120 exhibitors and 300 buyers attending the inaugural outbound event, including a large overseas buying contingent.
Gary Bender, Director and founder of Get Global, “Although our event was initially targeted at Australian buyers wishing to take their MICE business overseas, in the last few weeks have seen an influx of international buyers registering. They will be travelling to attend Get Global from countries such as India, Singapore and New Zealand.”
Liz Maxwell, Managing Director, ESP Ventures Limited, New Zealand “Friday, 28 July 2017 immediately went into my schedule when Get Global, was announced. The event ticked a few boxes for me – it has been initiated by industry professionals, Donna and Gary, the event has excellent sponsor support and has been well received by MICE industry suppliers. I’m looking forward to travelling to Sydney this week to spend the day at this new MICE business platform and to meet with a great cross-section of industry suppliers
Donna Kessler, Director and founder of Get Global, “Get Global’s unique, business focused, one day format allows buyers and sellers to liaise and network at their leisure. With no set appointments, and themed geographical zones, buyers and sellers can maximize their time at the event.”
Significant exhibitors attending include Air New Zealand, Cathay Pacific, Club Med, Hong Kong Tourism, Marriott, Movenpick, Qantas, QT, Sofitel, Langham, Royal Caribbean, Los Angeles Tourism, Las Vegas Tourism, Jumeriah Hotels and Hyatt to name just a few. Buyers will be able to connect with key locations, properties, and tourism bodies throughout the one day event.
Buyer registrations will remain open up right up to the start of Get Global and any buyers wishing to attend are encouraged to register before the start of the conference.
Get Global provides an innovative and efficient business platform for international suppliers to connect with corporate meeting planners, incentive houses, PCO’s, travel companies and anyone else that has international group business from Australia.
Get Global will be held in The Gallery, at the International Convention Centre this Friday, the 28th July.
