Friday, July 20 marked 2018’s Get Global, an industry exhibition which focuses on the Australia’s outbound market. Held at the ICC Sydney, the exhibition was a fantastic opportunity for those from the MICE industry to come together on an international scale.
The one-day event saw over 250 senior buyers network and meet with 20 countries and 140 different exhibitors. With the single-day format, new ICMI Inspiration Corner and the technology used to make it easier for buyers and exhibitors to connect, the event’s second year was definitely a success.
One of the biggest draw-cards for the event was the plethora of prizes to be won throughout the day. 27 international travel prizes were awarded to a few lucky attendees. To enter, buyers simply had to use the Get Global app, developed in conjunction with Touchpoint, to arrange their appointments throughout the day.
Get Global co-founder, Donner Kessler described the joy in having the prizes awarded throughout the day.
“One of the highlights of the day was announcing the prize winners! For the 27 winners, they will get to have an experience of a lifetime, from 12 nights at four luxurious properties in Fiji, to a gold course stay and round at the famous St Andrew’s course in Scotland, all our winners will be heading off to new adventures in the next year.”
Get Global will be held again next year on July 26, with the venue yet to be announced.
