The 'Meet Darwin' showcase follows the launch of the NT Convention Bureau's new brand Think Unconventionally.

The new branding encourages planners to choose NT destinations where inspiring ideas, cultural immersion and fascinating new experiences are the norm. A range of new marketing collateral is available for local tourism operators and businesses in the events market to use on your websites, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook accounts.
