Marketing summary

A marketing campaign was prepared to support the registration and redemption of the Territory Vouchers for Round 1, however due to the over subscription of registrants within hours of the program opening the marketing campaign was not required. 

Targeted e-newsletters were also distributed to those people that opted in, coordinated through Tourism NT, Tourism Top End, Tourism Central Australia and the Katherine Visitor Information Centre.
