The first major trade show for the business events industry in Australasia since the pandemic began, Get Local, taking place February 15 and 16 in Sydney has sold out its exhibition space.

Organisers are now using the 150 confirmed exhibitors to help dial up the excitement for buyers, with a grin-inducing video encouraging planners to come to the show.

Co-founders of Get Local, Gary Bender and Donna Kessler said exhibitor support had been “overwhelming”.

“We can’t believe the support we received for this project. Now all we need is for that support to be returned by meeting, incentive, group travel and event planners attending Get Local over the two days,” said Kessler.

“They’ll be rewarded with some great new connections, excellent speakers and a wonderful welcome party courtesy of Doltone House, plus we have over $50,000 in prizes to be won.”
