This month, Adam & Kevin attended the Bring Back the Buzz Showcase hosted by Be Challenged at Hyatt Regency Sydney. A welcome chance to re-connect with industry and our first venture back to face-to-face events since covid-19 began.
During June, the TP team re-connected in the Hunter Valley to strategise for post-COVID, while also welcoming two new venues to the portfolio. Ideas where shared, plans where made and of course, food and wine was enjoyed.
As a team, Tourism Portfolio recently headed to Berry in regional NSW for our annual strategy conference. Data was analysed, plans were made and laughs were shared. Stay tuned for the next 12 months, we've got some great plans ahead!
The annual visit from TERRAEVENTS was a great success in February 2020. From us at TP and TERRAEVENTS' Heather and Natalia, thank you for sharing our excitement for Italy, Spain, Portugal & France as we travelled across Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland to bring you the latest updates.
Together with HQ New Zealand we hosted a 3 day famil trip to Queenstown. A few grey skies couldn't stop the fun with jet boats, bungee, helicopters and 4WD adventures on the itinerary, as well as some more relaxed yoga, cruising and wine tasting.

After being inspired, our DMC partner from Scotland, K&N Travel can provide programs to showcase Scotland's extensive history, beautiful landscapes, and vibrant culture.

This month, after attending IMEX in Las Vegas, in partnership with Marriott International, Tourism Portfolio hosted a group in Hawaii.
Time was well spent inspecting accommodation and conferencing options, enjoying dinner in some spaces great for private use and of course, appreciating the sunshine with beach activities.

I have known Donna Kessler in a professional capacity for 20 years. Initially as a colleague, then saw her grow in setting up and establishing Tourism Portfolio and in the last 7 years as an exclusive representative in the MICE market for Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa. Donna and her team represent our property on the domestic as well as international markets.
A professional relationship as we have is not just based on production and bottom line alone, but also the ability to ‘be’ that property, understand its values and be the face of that property – the ability to be seamless, utterly professional at all times as well as commercially creative. Donna and her staff are a joy to work with and they are not afraid to actively work with my team to get best commercial results.
In the market they are without a doubt considered to be the best in what they do, with impeccable integrity and results.
