The Northern Territory is home to some of the world’s largest mines and mineral deposits, making the sector a key NT Government priority.
This extends to attracting business events, with conferences enabling the exchange of ideas, development of new contacts and a showcase of NT innovation and expertise. Expert local speakers, a regional delegate base and off-site technical tours enhance the proposition.
The award-winning Darwin Convention Centre has hosted innumerable resource sector events and its extensive conference spaces have proven ideal.
“We chose Darwin for our biannual conference in 2019 because the NT offers some great opportunities for our industry,” said Peter Hall, CEO of the Australian Drilling Industry Association. “We felt it was a great location, with an ideal-sized convention centre perfect to suit all our needs plus accommodation, cafes and bars nearby at the Waterfront Precinct.”
The Northern Territory Business Events Support Fund, administered by Northern Territory Business Events, offers an added incentive. Eligible events at the consideration or bidding stage can apply for support of AUD$100 per delegate.
