‘Get Local’ 2022- our biggest highlights

Last week Carla and Susan from The Conference Shop attended Get Local Expo in Sydney – the first in-person industry event in a very long time!

To be back reconnecting face to face with so many industry professionals was something that we have truly missed over the past few months. Everyone is so excited to be back in business and is looking to the future where live meetings have a strong presence in the annual corporate calendar again.

The theme of the expo was to ‘keep it local’ by focusing on the rich and diverse event offerings we have here in our own backyard. With international borders only just opening in Australia and the ongoing risk of Covid overseas, we learned that there is still a heavy demand for domestic destinations and smaller group meetings.

It was also encouraging to see so many new hotels and venues continuing to emerge throughout Australia and that during the lockdowns, other venues have taken the opportunity to refresh and refurbish!

Get Local did a great job of highlighting the individuality of each region with a special mention of Doltone House and their creative welcome event that showcased each state and territory through a signature dish and beverage.

Overall this experience reminded us that meeting in person will always be the number one way to connect and that with proper planning you can have both a safe and successful event.
