TNLA (Tourism Australia)

"Australia is perhaps the largest aspirational destination site in the world. The storytelling, imagery and immersive features of the There's Nothing Like Australia (TNLA) tablet app successfully increased the conversion of those potential visitors from the "Dreaming" stage of the persuasion sequence to an "Intent to Book" and ultimately to bookings. Extrapolating conversions from the initial limited launch of the app equates to tens of millions of dollars of incremental revenue leading to an updated version of the app starting this summer and TNLA becoming one of the cornerstones of Tourism Australia's mobile and social media strategy."
