The prize packages will be awarded at the end of each NT Muster event to agents who enter the competition. To enter, agents must meet with at least ten operators and answer their product question correctly. Operators must submit a question and answer on registration and ensure the answer is in their presentation.

In return for the sponsored product operators will receive:

  • sponsorship recognition at each event

  • company logo included in the on-screen presentation, displayed on rotation throughout the night

Major Sponsor - Total value of $3000 per event.

There is an opportunity for one operator to be a major prize sponsor. The major prize will be packaged with other sponsored product, and return flights for two from each city will be provided by Tourism NT.

  • company logo and prize itinerary promoted on the inside front cover of the NT Muster program
  • presentation opportunity (max 3 minutes) when major prize is drawn
  • sponsorship recognition at each NT Muster event
