The Tourism IdeasFest is a turbocharged one day event at the Wirraway Business Centre at Darwin International Airport. It is open to everyone with tourism ideas and visions for the Territory.

The Territory Government’s Turbocharging Territory Tourism $103M package announced on 13th February 2018 also turbo-changed our game plan for IdeasFest Tourism 2018!

Join us at the now bigger, better and turbocharged Tourism IdeasFest at the new date of Saturday 28 April 2018 at the fabulous Wirraway Business Centre at Darwin International Airport! It is open to everyone with tourism ideas and visions for the Territory.

Some of you will focus on solving problems and some will workshop fresh new ideas (including some they’ve experienced themselves as travellers). The day will be expertly facilitated by Troy Haines from TheSpace in Cairns and expertly supported by local entrepreneurs.
