AFTA reveals NTIA after party venue

If you’re lucky enough to have scored an invite to the AFTA National Travel Industry Awards (NTIA), Singapore Airlines are throwing an after party that’s well worth the hangover.

The sponsors have just announced a brand new venue for their 2017 NTIA after party: The Port, Darling Harbour.

Gala dinner guests will be able to party the night away overlooking jaw dropping water and city views.

Both Singapore Airlines and AFTA are extremely excited about the event, the after party, and the new venue.

“Singapore Airlines is proud to once again be the exclusive sponsor of the NTIA After Party. The night provides us with the perfect opportunity to thank the industry for its strong support of Singapore Airlines over the 50 years we have been flying to Australia.

“We look forward to celebrating the industry’s night of nights with our industry partners and friends,” Dale Woodhouse, Singapore Airlines’ Senior Manager of Marketing & Alliances Australia said.

Jayson Westbury, AFTA Chief Executive, thanked Singapore Airlines for their continued support in years passed.

“Singapore Airlines continue to be fantastic supporters of travel agents across Australia and we are so please to have them once again host the NTIA after party in this amazing new Darling Harbour side venue,” he said.

The NTIA Gala Dinner will take place this weekend (Saturday 22 July) in the Grand Ballroom of the International Convention Centre, Sydney. Doors open at five pm, and guests will be able to make their way over to the after party from 10pm until late.

Singapore Airlines will be showing guests how to celebrate – and in one of Sydney’s hottest new venues – so don’t be late.

We tried to nominate ourselves for this award, but apparently ignoring the boss and pretending to be your own boss doesn’t actually make you CEO.
