Parrtjima – A Festival in Light 2021 has taken out two awards at the Australian Event Awards. The visually stunning 10-night festival held in Alice Springs, Mparntwe, was awarded Best Regional Event and Best Achievement in Marketing or Communications.
At a time when events across the world were being cancelled due to COVID-19, Parrtjima 2021 was a huge success, attracting 15,300 unique visitors and generating a Total Expenditure Stimulus of more than $11.5 million for the Territory economy. Almost $10 million of this was new money.
The Australian Event Awards recognise the very best across the nation’s events industry.
