In a bold move to build confidence the organisers of Get Local are forging ahead with event and destination show Get Local, taking place on 15th & 16th February at ICC Sydney, and have ordered over 2,000 Rapid Antigen Tests,
“For almost two years, industry buyers have been unable to physically see and source new products, meet face-to-face with their suppliers or network with colleagues,” said Donna Kessler, one of the co-founders of Get Local.
“If the industry’s own event does not proceed as scheduled, then what message does that send to the broader business community about meetings and travel generally?
“For the stability of the industry and the economy it is crucial that businesses continue to operate and grow despite COVID-19 and even more so for the industry itself to lead this return.”
Get Local will have contactless registration, no handouts, brochures or physical giveaways, and an open floor design with plenty of space for participants to move about freely and physically distanced, keeping to the COVID EventSafe Operating Guidelines.
BESydney CEO Lyn Lewis-Smith said kudos must go to Donna and Gary for their determination and commitment to bringing business events buyers and sellers together in Sydney next month.
“It’s important we come together as a sector and demonstrate the true value of face-to-face business events, in the COVIDSafe hands of event professionals,” said Ms Lewis-Smith.
