The upcoming Get Local business events showcase will now include an Education Program featuring keynotes and panel discussions.
Floorspace for the event (to be held on 29-30 July 2021) has been expanded at the ICC Sydney to accommodate “huge interest” from exhibitors and buyers, now flowing into both The Gallery and the Parkside Ballroom.
Co-Owners Donna Kessler and Gary Bender said support for the show has been overwhelming.
“Donna and I are pleased to say we have sold out of the NSW, QLD and National Zone exhibition areas, but we still have some availability in other zones. We never expected we would need to expand the show footprint at this stage. Not only will we have the industry suppliers, but we now have a great Education Program lined-up,” said Bender.
“Event delegates wanting inspiration and the latest industry news will hear from industry leaders as they provide important updates for the sector,” Kessler said.
Phillipa Harrison, Managing Director of Tourism will kick off The Presentation Zone, sharing details of the tourism bureau’s current activities and the latest initiatives being undertaken for the business events community.
John Sharp AM, Deputy Chairman of Rex Airlines (Regional Express) will provide insight on the carrier’s strategy and future plans for domestic aviation.
The Education Program includes a Saxton Showcase with serial entrepreneur, Lisa Messenger; producer and presenter of the Health Report, Dr Norman Swan; and adventurer, traveller and storyteller, Caroline Pemberton.
The program continues with presentations from Arinex with tips on turning events from virtual to face-to-face, a panel discussion from The Association Specialists on how for-purpose organisations manage risk and deliver value for members, and the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence ANZ will deliver a session on the power of incentives.
“While we have expanded, we are still capped on the amount of people able to attend. We expect places for the education showcases, the Get Together Welcome Event at Doltone House Darling Island, the networking lunch and cocktail party to be popular and we urge attendees to reserve a place now, so they don’t miss out,” Kessler added.
