In late 2016, the ‘Guess Where?’ concept was introduced to the Do the NT brand campaign to show that there is more to do in the Northern Territory than you may think and that once you return from your holiday you will understand the true value of a holiday in the NT.
The new major 'Guess Where?' brand campaigns includes free-to-air broadcast TV commercials, pay TV, cinemas,digital advertising, outdoor advertising, YouTube, social media and co-operative campaigns with retail and airline partners.
Digital and print ads will promote regional areas of the NT like Darwin, Nhulunbuy, Kakadu, Katherine, Alice Springs , Tennant Creek and Uluru.
The initial campaign will be in market for six weeks and will be led by the TV commercials for the first three weeks followed by the print and digital media for the remaining three weeks. This staggered media approach will allow the public to see the characters and understand the story before the messaging is reinforced through digital and print media.
To help convert interest into actual holiday bookings, the campaign includes three travel partners that will be in market to leverage and extend the campaign's reach.
