Australia-based business events constancy, Mayvin Global, has expanded into the Northern Territory following the recent opening of an office in Darwin.

With offices already in Sydney and the Gold Coast, Mayvin Global founder and managing director, Deanna Varga said she recognised the opportunity to support Northern Territory’s business events and tourism sectors at a time when most companies are reducing their growth investments.

"Opening an office during Covid-19 might seem like going against the grain, however, after the experience of our recent projects, undertaking multiple visits to Uluru, Darwin and Alice Springs and having had several meetings with NT representatives, I knew this was a risk worth taking," she said.

"The opening of the Darwin office is a great chance for us to show real commitment to the region, one I’m passionate about, by providing ‘boots on the ground’ to work across tourism, business events, associations and the arts,” she added.

Mayvin Global recently completed Industry Enhancement Workshops in Darwin, Alice Springs and Uluru for Northern Territory Business Events, and an International Conference Bidding Process for the Darwin Convention Centre.

The team in Darwin is headed up by Kathryn Duell, Northern Territory Manager who will lead Tamara Williams and Sydney-based Tania Sissaguian, as they work to make an impact, both socially and financially, for the region.

Peter Savoff, general manager, Darwin Convention Centre, welcomed the opening of the Mayvin Global Darwin office and sees great opportunities to raise the profile of Darwin as a destination of choice for event planners.

"This is great news for our region, and I applaud Mayvin Global for taking this risk during a time when so many businesses are holding tight or retracting.

"Even as we battle through the realities of living with Covid-19, we have work to do. Combining our record for hosting successful conventions and conferences with the unique qualities of the NT as a tourist destination, I look forward to what will be possible when we collaborate with businesses like this,” he said.
