Tourism NT is inviting local tourism operators and businesses to be part of major digital leap forward for the NT tourism industry with a range of new initiatives.

With more and more customers buying everything from holidays to tours to restaurant bookings online, it’s critical for Northern Territory tourism and hospitality businesses to be operating in the digital space.

This is your chance to capitalise on the latest digital marketing technologies and help build a united digital marketing approach in the Northern Territory.
