Aussies crack Top 10 in Global Events’ 100 best

Local events continue to shine on the world stage as the NT ranks sixth.

The Northern Territory Major Events Company (NTMEC) has placed sixth in the Eventex Awards Top 100 Event Organisers and Agencies for 2023. 

NTMEC has climbed the ladder from ninth place in last year’s Top 100 and is the only Australian company to make the Top 10. 

NTMEC CEO, Suzana Bishop, said the awards are testament to what events can achieve for a community, and the people who go above and beyond to deliver incredible events.

“To see the Northern Territory appearing in not just the global Top 100, but the global Top 10, is incredible,” Mrs Bishop said.

“The Northern Territory might be a small jurisdiction, but our events industry delivers huge benefits, ranging from economic to social. 

“To be recognised for this on an international stage alongside some of the world’s leading events companies and agencies is fantastic.

“Recognition like this exposes the Territory’s events industry to prospective new partnerships and collaborations, which helps us keep evolving and changing.”

Parrtjima – A Festival in Light 2022 received six awards, while BASSINTHEGRASS Music Festival 2022 and the Darwin Triple Crown Supercars Indigenous Round 2022 both received two each.

The three events generated a total expenditure stimulus of $58.9 million, $44.3 million of which was new money to the Territory.

There was also success for other local events, AGB Events also won a few awards for Elevate Sydney and Noel Sydney.
