Nearly 200 event planners are expected to meet with the Northern Territory Convention Bureau (NTCB) and their industry partners when the annual ConveNTions Walkabout ’15 road show visits key markets in November.
NT participants will include convention centres, hotels, off-site venues and function spaces, specialist service suppliers, as well as the NTCB team.
Cocktail function events commencing at 5.30pm will be staged in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, from November 10-12 respectively. As has become a NT tradition, elegant and interesting venues have been chosen for these events and include the Argentinian La Boca Bar and Grill in Adelaide, STUDIO atop Sydney Tower, and CBD rooftop venue, Luminare in Melbourne. The two hour destination and product showcase will be followed by the opportunity for more informal networking, complemented by renowned NT hospitality and some exciting entertainment surprises.
Fantastic prizes will include destination trips to the NT, visiting either Uluru, Darwin or Alice Springs, with trips to each location being given away at all three ‘Walkabout’ functions. In addition, a lucky door prize of a Central Australian artefact from Alice Springs-based gallery, the Talapi Art Centre, will be won in each city.
ConveNTions Walkabout ’15 is open to attendance by Professional Conference Organisers, Destination Management Companies, event planners, in-house meeting organisers, association conference planners, and corporate decision makers in each city.
Holly May from the Asthma Foundation SA was a prize-winner from the 2014 road-show and she enthused about her NT trip experience. “I was incredibly fortunate to win a trip on The Ghan from Darwin to Adelaide, with massive thanks to the NTCB. The Ghan was an incredible experience and something that I would highly recommend. We live in such a beautiful country and it truly was so amazing to see it from top to tail and all the landscape in between.”
