There'll be prizes, goodie bags and exciting new exhibitors to explore!

There’s two weeks to go until the events industry gathers in Sydney for Events Uncovered 2019 – the must-attend boutique trade show for anyone who organises events.

Taking place at Verandah Bar, Sydney on 2 July, Events Uncovered showcases leading event venues, suppliers and products for meetings and events.

If you’re yet to secure your ticket, here are our top 6 reasons to attend the show – we hope to see you there!

1. Hot new venue

Events Uncovered is getting a shake up in 2019, with a brand new home at Verandah Bar in Sydney’s CBD. Popular for its great food, decadent cocktails and impeccable service, Verandah Bar has recently undergone a full refurbishment, transforming it into an urban oasis.

This stylish venue is the perfect spot for the industry to gather and explore the latest venues and suppliers. We assure you, this is a trade show like no other!

2. Amazing prize giveaways

Those who attend Events Uncovered 2019 will be in the running to win some incredible prizes on the day.

Fancy a private dinner for four at Madame Tussauds or a $200 gift card at Café del Mar? Perhaps an overnight stay at Sea World Resort on the Gold Coast? What about a high tea at sea on board Captain Cook Cruises or for the wine buffs, two tickets to a blending session at Urban Winery.

These are just a handful of the giveaway prizes up for grabs on the day. All you have to is visit each of the exhibition stands and get your passport scanned!

3. It’s free!

Yep! It’s free to attend the Events Uncovered expo, which runs from 12pm until 6pm. The show is also designed to suit busy schedules, so feel free to stay for the whole day or just pop in for a quick visit – it’s totally up to you.

4. Learn from the best in the biz

Coinciding with the expo is the Spice Temple of Knowledge, which features a stellar speaker line-up full of industry experts and professionals. Check it out here.

In this year’s program, we’ll hear from social media expert Mireille Ryan, who’ll share her top tips for building your event through social media, as well as Australia’s most awarded bartender Tim Philips-Johansson, who’ll lead an interactive cocktail masterclass.

Chad Davis (Musicland), Adam Harriden (INVNT), Michelle Sargent (CWT Meetings & Events) and Caroline Hutchison (Backdrops Fantastic Australia) will take part in a panel discussion about how to create bespoke events for the 21st century attendee, sharing first-hand knowledge of how to create events with impact.

And you won’t want to miss the entertaining and motivational Karen Jacobsen, who will kick off the program with a keynote presentation on navigating changes in life and business. (You might recognise her voice from your iPhone…yep, she’s the original voice of Siri!)

Tickets are priced at $25 (excluding GST) per session, while a special discounted package is available for those who wish to attend the entire program. Get your tickets here.

5. Network with industry peers
