Promote Your Event

From community activations to social media marketing and local media outreach, explore the following options to ensure your event is widely promoted through various networks and platforms.

Social media

Social media is a powerful tool for event promotion and should feature as part of your integrated marketing plan to drive ticket sales and engagement with event attendees, increase awareness of your event and create a sense of community before, during and after the event. To learn how you can work with TTNQ in promoting your event through social media, please contact Kelsey Andersen.

Community & Airport Activations

City dressing or event branding creates a vibrant event atmosphere in the destination and positively contributes to both the visitor experience and local community pride. It is an effective tool for raising awareness of major events and provides a great first impression for visitors arriving into the region.

  • Welcome signage at the Cairns Airport (domestic and international terminals)
  • Airport ambassadors
