NT tourism industry showcased to domestic and international trade operators

The best of the Territory’s tourism experiences, attractions and destinations will be showcased to domestic and international trade operators with multiple events occurring across the NT in August 2019 and September 2019.

Tourism NT will jointly host the largest delegation of domestic travel agents ever in the NT at the Flight Centre Team Leader Conferences for South Australian and New South Wales Team Leaders. Joined by other conference hosts including AAT Kings, Voyages, Cover-More Travel Insurance, APT Travel Group, Intrepid Travel, Topdeck Travel, Royal Caribbean and the Northern Territory Convention Bureau, Tourism NT presentations will highlight and promote the NT’s seasons, adventure, nature, wildlife, history and art and culture experiences.

From 29 August 2019 to 3 September 2019, Tourism NT’s annual domestic trade familiarisation and workshop event, NT Round Up, will showcase the Territory to 40 domestic and New Zealand delegates including frontline travel agents, wholesalers and product managers. Delegates will travel overnight on The Ghan from Darwin to Alice Springs via Katherine, courtesy of Journey Beyond. The delegates will undertake touring in Katherine and Alice Springs, providing firsthand experiences and opportunities to meet with tourism operators enabling the delegates to better sell the NT.

From 4-6 September 2019, the annual international Inbound NT event will provide NT operators the opportunity to meet face-to-face with up to 30 product managers from key inbound tour operator partners working across the NT’s global markets.

Held in Alice Springs, Inbound NT will run alongside Tourism NT’s bi-annual Adventure NT event which brings 30 targeted Chinese buyers to the NT.

Qantas are sponsoring the events in support of the Territory’s tourism industry, assisting key trade partners to attend.

Inbound NT and Adventure NT are being held on adjacent days to maximise the opportunity for NT operators to meet with all buyers in a compressed timeframe and within destination.
