Whom we represent

Tourism Portfolio represents DMC’s, venues, luxury hotels, resorts and suppliers to the MICE and leisure buyers in the Australian and New Zealand market.

It’s not surprising that we specialise in representation services. Tourism Portfolio’s founder, Donna Kessler, has previously held senior positions with international hotel chains including Hilton and Intercontinental. Donna’s strategic thinking, planning and research, coupled with our contacts throughout the travel industry, have led to increased opportunities and excellent results.

We work on our client’s behalf to promote their business in the dynamic Australian and New Zealand market, enabling our clients to develop and expand their services and products to a diverse range of corporate, agency, event and incentive organisations which would otherwise remain untapped.

We work within in all facets of the tourism industry. These include meetings, incentives, conventions, exhibitions, wholesale FIT and leisure markets, both domestically and internationally. We know this market inside-out, and by actively keeping abreast of the developments, new players and hence new opportunities, we are able to progressively market to the ever-evolving demands. This provides us with the ability to offer reliable, timely and valuable information to meet our clients’ needs.

Tourism Portfolio‘s unique understanding of the tourism and hospitality industry within Australia, acquired from almost three decades of direct tourism, event and incentive marketing experience, including an enviable reputation and long-standing business relationships, is what ensures bottom line ROI. This, ultimately, provides our clients with tangible results and a unique edge in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

We only select and work with leading Destination Management Companies (DMC’s) in their destinations, Venues and Resorts who pride themselves on delivering exceptional service, creative and innovative proposals resulting in an outcome that exceeds clients expectations .. after all its our reputation on the line! Proven results for our clients. That keeps us (and you) a step ahead.

Our team consists of experienced, passionate, dedicated individuals who share the common values and work ethic that embraces a 'can do' attitude and engages a hands-on approach . Together, we work hard to deliver the right outcomes for the clients we represent.


Strong travel industry contacts

Our strong reputation and broad experience within the travel industry means our contacts are second to none. We use our profile to network actively and regularly attend travel industry and media events. Donna and the team are members of various industry bodies and our contacts mean we can create effective partnership marketing campaigns, bringing together tour operators, hoteliers and tourist boards to create exciting trade and consumer propositions.
