    Viking has announced it is sponsoring the NTIA Afterparty!

    AFTA’s CEO, Dean Long, said he’s thrilled about the sponsorship as the awards night gears up to be one of its biggest ever.

    “We are delighted to welcome Viking as our Afterparty sponsor and thank them for their generous support,” Long said.

    “Just based on the very preliminary conversations we have already had with the team at Viking, the 2023 Afterparty is going to take travel’s night of nights to a whole new level.

    “We are delighted to pair up with the best in travel, to celebrate the best in and of travel and Viking is a very welcome addition to our family of NTIA sponsors.”

    Viking’s managing director ANZ, Michelle Black, said the sponsorship was an important part of Viking’s return to form.

    “We are so excited to be sponsoring the Afterparty for travel’s night of nights and can’t wait to celebrate the success of our industry over the past 12 months.” 

    “Our industry partners are an extremely important part of our business and the past year has been huge for us all as travel has made its triumphant comeback. So we look forward to welcoming everyone to the NTIA Afterparty where, in true Viking style, it promises to be the best Afterparty yet!”

    The highly anticipated National Travel Industry Awards will be held in Melbourne on the 18th of November.

    Appetite for the industry’s night of nights is already at record levels. A massive 1700 nominations have been received and the AFTA team is already hard at work on creating a spectacular celebration.
