Quotes attributable to Minister for Tourism and Hospitality, Nicole Manison:
“Our billion dollar Territory tourism industry is bouncing back, with over 1.3 million tourists spending, staying and sightseeing across the Territory in the year to March.”

“We know how important tourism is to the Territory – providing over 12 000 jobs across the NT and injecting over $2.6 billion back into our local economy.”

“We have some world class tourism businesses here in the Territory and I encourage all our local tourism operators to nominate for the Brolgas this year and really celebrate your hard work.”

Quotes attributable to Darwin Convention Centre General Manager, Peter Savoff:
“It is an incredible honour to represent the Northern Territory on the national stage as Best Business Event Venue in Australia.”

“Winning at the NT Brolga Awards in 2021 and going on to win Gold at the prestigious Qantas Australian Tourism Awards earlier this year has strengthened the Centre’s professional reputation and continues to place the Darwin Convention Centre, and Darwin on the map as a competitive destination for Business Events on a national and international level - which is now more important than ever as the events industry across Australia begins to rebuild from the COVID pandemic.”
