Following the highly successful conferences in Townsville in 2015 and Darwin in 2016 and the implementation of the government White Paper, the focus of the 2017 conference will be on initiatives to drive progress, growth and investment in the development of northern Australia.

Topics to be presented and discussed include land and water; food and agribusiness; forestry; resources and energy; tourism and hospitality; international education; healthcare and medical research; infrastructure; workforce opportunities; indigenous-led northern development; and developing strategic links as the Gateway to Asia.

With a Program including feature speakers discussing the key issues, session presentations from industry leaders on specialist topic areas, thought provoking forums, sector exhibitions and networking events, this is a must attend conference. 

Abstract Submissions have now closed for the Developing Northern Australia Conference.
