A healthy number of C&I guests headed to the IVY on Wednesday night as the NT Meeting Muster 2012 rolled into Sydney.
The event was the third held in five cities that included Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide, with a smaller gathering to be held in Perth.
Causing a frisson of interest in the predominantly female audience was MC Russell Robertson, former AFL Demons player, who up until three years ago had never been to the Northern Territory.
“My vision of the Territory is like that of many other people who haven’t there – hot, ready and dusty,” he said
Which begged the question why is he the NT spokesperson?
“Simply because I hadn’t been there before,” he said.
“Until I’d been there and seen things like the sunset over Uluru, I thought I’d seen it all.
“I was flabbergasted, it was a spiritual experience and I was a changed person,” he said with honest conviction.
“I recommend the NT experience and if that equates to business, then I urge you to go.”
MEANWHILE, getting a one up on other AIME exhibitors the NT operators were handing out invitations to join them to Spend an Evening with the NT@AIME, at Melbourne’s Paco’s Tacos, Tuesday 26 February.
It sounds like a fun evening, so line up for an invite by emailing email@example.com.
