World-class hotels from across the globe will have a strong presence at Get Global this year, with over 35% of all registered exhibitors coming from a hotel brand, and of those, nine are exhibiting for the first time.
The third instalment of the multi award-winning trade show will take place next month at ICC Sydney. Co-founder Gary Bender said; “It’s great to see so many hotels representing their regions this year. Our hotel partners have reported great success over the last two years, and it’s wonderful to welcome new exhibitors to the Get Global family.”

Returning for the third year, Andrea Werner, Senior Sales Manager, One&Only Resorts, said there is a reason Get Global has been so successful over the past two years.
“It’s so easy, you don’t need to have an elaborate booth or multiple staff members to man it. Get Global offers flexibility and allows us to meet with qualified buyers and to have as much time as required to update them on One&Only Resorts. It has resulted in leads and converted business. I like the informal setup that also allows to talk with industry colleagues and see what trends and destinations are in demand,” said Ms Werner.
Hotels cater for all types of meetings and events, large and small. For incentive planners, they are an essential component and can make or break a trip.
“Sales is no longer about the hard sell on the spot, rather it's about who you know,” says co-founder, Donna Kessler.
“In my experience, relationships are vital to the success of a business, so come along to meet new people, connect with your existing network and make lasting future contacts.”
Get Global will be held in The Gallery, ICC Sydney, Friday 26 July 2019.
