Following a comprehensive pitch, Tourism Australia has confirmed the appointment of a panel of agencies to provide integrated global creative and digital services.

Accenture Song, The Monkeys, and Droga5 have been appointed to provide Tourism Australia’s creative and digital services for five years from July 2024, structured as a three-year initial contract with options for two further one-year extensions.

“We have a very specific brief at Tourism Australia with a global footprint that sees us actively market into 15 key international markets,” said Tourism Australia Managing Director, Phillipa Harrison.


 

“Our campaigns have set a high benchmark over the years and as our operating environment continues to evolve we need to ensure Australia stands out on the world stage,” Ms Harrison said.

“During the tender process Accenture Song, along with The Monkeys and Droga5, proved they were best placed to provide Tourism Australia with the integrated global creative and digital services we need. We look forward to working with them to showcase the best Australia has to offer to the world.”

Tourism Australia Chief Marketing Officer Susan Coghill added: “We will be working closely with Accenture, The Monkeys and Droga5 to remind the world why ‘There’s Nothing Like Australia’ and are excited to learn more about the creative ideas and big thinking they can bring to the table as we look to get Australia’s tourism industry back on a path of sustainable growth.”

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank M&C Saatchi and Digitas for all of their hard work over the past five years. It was a challenging period and thanks to both agencies we were able to pivot into the domestic space, with the Holiday Here This Year campaigns, and once international travel resumed we launched our current global campaign Come and Say G’day welcoming travellers back to Australia.”


 

Accenture Song CEO (and Australian expat) David Droga says: “This win means a lot. Professionally and personally. We are thrilled by the wonderful opportunity, immense responsibility and the rekindled partnership.”

Accenture Song A/NZ President & The Monkeys Cofounder and Group CEO Mark Green adds: “It’s a privilege to partner with Susan and her team of outstanding marketers to help transform and elevate Tourism Australia’s global creative and digital marketing approach.

“Combining the creative firepower of The Monkeys (Australian agency of the decade) and Droga5 (US agency of the decade), underpinned by the technology and global footprint of Accenture Song, we have some of the best Australian talent from around the world coming together to bring the best of Australia to the world.”
