Get Global has been awarded the highly distinguished ‘Exhibition of the Year’ title at the National Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) 2018 Industry Awards in Brisbane earlier this month.
Having also won the award last year, Co-Founders and Directors of Get Global, Gary Bender and Donna Kessler, are ecstatic about the accolade, and proud of the accomplishments the show has achieved in such a short time.
“To win this esteemed award for a second time is phenomenal. The support and dedication shown by the industry, and the team who have helped us get the event off the ground, has been outstanding.
“Donna and I took a risk when we started the show and it’s humbling to be validated by our peers. We look forward to seeing everyone in July,” said Bender.
Judges recognised Get Global’s growth year-on-year, the diversity of exhibitors with over 150 international products represented, and the extremely high NPS received from exhibitors and delegates.
“Gary and I started Get Global out of a need to showcase more international product and to disrupt the regular cookie-cutter format of our industry shows. For Get Global to be recognised as ‘Exhibition of the Year’ twice is a monumental achievement.
“We’re extremely happy with this result and will continue to lead the way,” said Kessler.
On Monday 1 April, Gary and Donna presented their insights and experience in setting up Get Global, in the session ‘Best Practice Case Study’ at MEA’s Evolve 2019 Conference.
Get Global provides an opportunity for event and incentive organisers to spend one day meeting with new exhibitors from around the world, networking with peers, sharing knowledge and doing business.
Get Global will be held in The Gallery, ICC Sydney, Friday 26 July 2019.
The exhibitor spaces are selling fast, over 30 per cent of confirmed exhibitors attending Get Global are new to the show. For more information and to register visit: www.getglobal.com.au/global_register.php
