Network Support Coordinator
Thrifty Car Rental
Our company Thrifty Car Rental hold an annual conference, and this year I was delegated the job of organising it.
I immediately was overwhelmed of the large task ahead of me and had absolutely no idea where to start.
After committing a lot of time deciding on an appropriate venue, I finally got approval and booked the venue for our 2018 conference.
Not being familiar with the location of the venue I was extremely fortunate to be referred to Noosa Destination Management Company, where instantly I felt at ease as both Tony and Danielle guaranteed that they will provide all the support I needed for a successful conference.
Noosa DCM assisted me with booking a large group of attendees for a formal dinner, by personalising the menu for people with all sorts of allergies. I had assistance booking all my guests into a recreational activity, which included transfer arrangements and catering.
As a team they went above and beyond to achieve and I quote from delegates “ The best conference in the history of Thrifty”, and without their guidance and expertise I couldn’t have done this without them.
After a whole week of being away from my family Tony and Danielle become my family away from home, when it was time to leave I honestly was so upset that my interaction with them was
Coming to an end. At saying that I would without doubt recommend Noosa Destination Management Company, to any company or individual needing assistance in organising a small to large scale event as they proved their knowledge and Professionalism.
Thank you so much Tony and Danielle, I wish you both all the best in the future and looking forward to working with you again.

Thanks for your help during our recent company meeting Tony. Your ability to reschedule activities at the last minute and keep your cool despite impending cyclones, was fantastic. Company meetings are always hectic with shifting needs, having you help out the team made the meeting run much more smoothly. We had a great time in Noosa, partly due to your abilities, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to other organisations.
Thanks for the photos, good memories

We had a fantastic time at Noosa.
The band was fantastic (we loved our Annie Lennox look-a-like), team building great, gifts beautiful.
Oh and the transfers efficient.
I’m glad we could use the services of the people from the Sunshine Coast – everyone was very accommodating.
I will definitely look at hosting more events on the Sunshine Coast next time and will certainly use your services.
Once again thank you so much for all of your help.

I cannot recommend Tony and the team at Noosa DMC highly enough. Having never visited the Noosa region and booking a three day event for 30 + guests, I was slightly overwhelmed with the prospect. Thanks goodness I connected with Tony. Nothing was too much trouble, he was on hand at every step of the way and his recommendations of activities, transfers and restaurants were first class. On arrival in Noosa for the event, Tony greeted my guests and I ensuring every detail was in place and as an Event Organiser, Tony went above and beyond. His level of communication in the lead up to and during was exceptional and ensured the event was the success it was. So much so, we are returning this year to do it all again. Thanks Tony to you, all your team and all of the service providers you recommended. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our time in Noosa and we look forward to returning.
Basically this whole weekend was fantastic and organised!
Every single one of our guests raved about all of their activities. People loved the Everglades tour with some even saying it was the best day they have had in a long time, the guys really enjoyed golf, and the spa people raved over their spa day.
As for you Tony I cannot thank you enough for dealing with me! My million emails/questions etc. This was totally less painful in organising this year and all options were top notch and the Insync company felt very well looked after.
A big thank you to Tony and the team at Noosa DMC for making our Leadership Conference a resounding success. We enjoyed multiple activities with the assistance of Tony and the team. The jet boating, jet ski and Stand Up Paddle boarders had a fabulous time, and the golfers also enjoyed a truly professional golfing experience thanks to the expertise and obliging demeanour of Tony and his team.
We have received positive feedback from our senior managers, and would recommend engaging the services of Tony Mulherin and his team for any business or leisure activities in the Noosa area.
Many thanks for making our conference a huge success!

The trip was really great. We saw whales, a turtle, goannas and as you noted the weather was magical. However, lunch was a real standout, and everyone left on a positive note, and I received very positive feedback from the group.
Thanks for your help putting together the program, and best wishes for the future.

Sending you our sincere thanks for all you did for our group, and helping to make our Wednesday afternoon activities extremely seamless and enjoyable for all our people.

Fantastic Feedback from the Jet skiers who have told me it was awesome! J
The National Park Walk was immensely enjoyed by the group with great feedback and highly recommended J
As was the High Tea River Cruise of which I was lucky enough to experience…. a big thank you to you and Danielle for making sure the river cruise was to a very high standard and we were very well looked after. I am so glad that I got to see beautiful Noosa from this perspective and it was great to have such yummy treats & tea to enjoy it with.
Great report from the golfers as well!
All in all a very successful afternoon for our group, of which I am very grateful to you for your expertise in the local area.
A big thank you.
Thanks again Tony for all your assistance, we had a great time.
PA to the Head of Region – Japan/Pacific
“THANK YOU so much for all the helped you provided during our company staff celebration last November 2016. It was a great SUCCESS!
You’ve done an amazing job! I was a bit hesitant to get an external provider as I am used to planning it all — but I’m glad I did!
Special thanks to Tony for all the hard work and professionalism. Your communication is outstanding! You always kept me in the loop and you were there every step of the way.
All our tours ran very smoothly, from transfers, activities and lunch — our staff enjoyed their chosen activity because Noosa DMC made it very fun, enjoyable and memorable.
I will highly recommend Noosa DMC to anyone and for sure will use them again in the future.
Thanks heap Tony!”

“I really appreciate all your hard work with the transfers and our Tai Chi Activity in Noosa. You really went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly so thank you. Thanks again for everything!”
“I wish to thank you for making our Annual Sales Conference on the Sunshine Coast (Caloundra) such a memorable experience. You may recall that I was called upon to organise our sales conference earlier this year (part of which had already been done by one of my colleagues). Fortunately for me, I found your contact details in the file and was able to contact you with my requests. From collecting refreshments for our boat trip to arranging a last minute pick up to travel to Brisbane airport, nothing was too much trouble. The fact that Noosa DMC was able to organise these things for our conference was great, as it would have been far more difficult for me to organise from Melbourne.
One thing that really stood out for me was the outstanding communication. Prior to making any bookings on our behalf, Tony would contact me with all the information, so I was completely informed during the whole process. I highly recommend Noosa DMC to anyone wishing to arrange an event on the Sunshine Coast. I know that I will be enlisting the services of Noosa DMC in the future, should we have another conference in Queensland.
Tony and Danielle, thank you for making our sales conference an enjoyable, stress free event.”
