Register now for the 9th Aboriginal Economic Development Forum
The Northern Territory Government has more than ten years history of delivering an Aboriginal specific economic development forum to progress Aboriginal economic development in the Northern Territory and providing opportunities for Territory Aboriginal businesses to establish connections with other entities that can lead to commercial outcomes.
The biennial forum is recognised as one of Australia’s largest Aboriginal economic development specific events that attracts around 400 delegates, including over 50% Aboriginal delegate participation.
The 9th Aboriginal Economic Development Forum will be held in Darwin on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 November 2019 at the Darwin Convention Centre.
For more information and registration, go to the AEDF9 event portal.
The Forum will include a welcome reception, plenary sessions with keynote presentations, breakout sessions and a Marketplace showcasing Northern Territory Aboriginal businesses and services and programs. The Forum will provide an opportunity for Aboriginal businesses from across the NT to showcase their products and services to key stakeholders with a vested interest in progressing Aboriginal economic development.
Building on previous forums, there will be an emphasis on encouraging the sharing of knowledge, experiences and connecting and strengthening relationships between Aboriginal entrepreneurs, private sector, industry, government and non-government organisations. The Forum is one of Australia’s largest Aboriginal economic development specific events.
The Territory is a land alive and inspiring; where we don’t just dream of achieving. We thrive on it. Over thousands of years of uninterrupted culture sees the Aboriginal business sector growing more rapidly than the rest of the economy.
The Territory Government supports a strong, diverse and self-sufficient Aboriginal business sector.
