After months of working through the feedback of buyers, exhibitors and suppliers, Get Global, Australia’s only one-day MICE event dedicated exclusively to outbound product, has released its 2018 Prospectus.
Get Global’s inaugural event in July 2017 brought 240 buyers and 120 exhibitors together for an exhibition with 100% international product. Now, the team is ready to deliver the improvements to the 2018 program.
According to founders Donna Kessler and Gary Bender, the 2018 event will draw double the delegate numbers.
“After our first event, we spent a long time going through the thoughts of all our attendees. We want to make sure Get Global delivers the type of event both buyers and sellers make as their one essential trade event of the year. This will only happen if we listen and execute,” said Mr Bender.
Holly Ballard, Account Manager, Meetings, Conferences and Incentives – Hawaii Tourism Oceania, said: “The 2017 Get Global event was very successful for us. We really felt Donna and Gary had listened to the needs of the industry and created the trade event we have all been waiting for. After sharing with us the change for 2018, we will definitely be one of the first to register – I don’t want to miss out!”
Amongst other changes, the 2018 event will see the introduction of an Inspiration Corner, where a series of speakers will present snippets of their industry-relevant keynote speeches throughout the day. This area has been designed to attract more corporate buyers for the duration of the day.
“We’ve listened and will implement more theming, more signage, more partnership opportunities and more in-zone catering so buyers and sellers do not have to abruptly stop conversations and move away to eat,” Ms Kessler said.
The Ultimate Exhibitor Package has also been developed for those exhibitors who would like to stand out from the crowd. With a larger themed zone, including multiple meeting areas, increased branding and the option to choose the location with other like-minded exhibitors, the Ultimate Exhibitor Package also allows for more staff to be present to engage buyers.
Early Bird Offer: those registering before Friday 29 December will save $300.
For exhibitor groups there is an added bonus: purchase six spots and receive seven, or purchase nine tickets and receive 11.
With over 1320 connections made at Get Global 2017, the 2018 event is set to really deliver on its promise – Where the World Meets and attract even more decision makers from around the world.
