Get Global Gets Going

Get Global, held its third year at ICC Sydney last week, with over 340 registered buyers and 120 exhibitors from all over the world. 

Additions such as the Saxton Speakers showcase including fitness and health powerhouse Michelle Bridges and gin sensation Matt Jones, a refreshed floorplan and extended media engagement program, helped deliver 40% new product to the buyers, representing a strong growth in exhibitors.

First-time buyer at Get Global, Rosie Buckley, business development manager, Conference Resources, said: “I liked the casual feel of the show. You could meet with whomever you pleased.”

While John Kovacevic, sales director, Motivforce, said: “I enjoyed the layout and the fact buyers weren’t speed dating, which meant the conversations weren’t limited by time.” Jennette Kam, event consultant, Amway Australia, said: “The exhibitor flow was easy to navigate. They were well placed throughout the venue, and the whole show had a great vibe.”
Third time exhibitor, Claire-Hector-Taylor from ChristchurchNZ said "I exhibited at Get Global for the third time and each year I meet new people who are really interested in what is happening in Christchurch. I like the fact that Donna and Gary keep tweaking the show to ensure it provides a valuable platform to make new connections. "

Rohani De Beger, Regional associate director of sales, Marina Bay Sands Singapore, sang the praises of Get Global this year.

“If you didn’t make it to Get Global 2019, you missed a great show... pure international MICE suppliers and buyers, inspirational speakers, fantastic layout and format.”

Nicole Tingey, Co-founder, Clockwise Consulting, said: “For a one day show, Get Global delivered. We were in front of the right buyers, networked with colleagues and met new connections for our international clients. We'll be back.”

Co-founders Gary Bender and Donna Kessler were thrilled with quality and commitment shown by the industry.

“We’ve grown drastically in the last three years and are immensely proud of our show and the amount of support we’ve received from the meetings and events industry; we want to thank everyone for their continued support and feedback,” said Mr Bender.

Kessler said herself and Gary are an active part of this community and have designed a show that would deliver what they as buyers want to see.

“I know when I attend a tradeshow I like to learn (not always about work), meet great people and have the opportunity to network. Which is exactly what we delivered this year.

“We are in constant discussions with our exhibitors and buyers and are always going to tweak our format to stay current and relevant to our dynamic industry.

“However, first and foremost, Get Global is about delivering on expectations and ROI, for both exhibitors and buyers. This is where our focus lies, we look forward to speaking to those who attended Get Global over the next weeks and months and incorporating their feedback to further enhance next year’s show,” said Ms Kessler.  

Get Global will host their fourth show on Friday 10 July 2020.
