NT Resources Week 2021

The annual Northern Territory (NT) Resources Week is northern Australia’s largest resources industry based networking, conference and exhibition experience.

Now in its 13th year, this joint event unites three of northern Australia’s foremost resource industry events: The South East Asia Australia Offshore and Onshore Conference (SEAAOC), Mining the Territory Conference and the Environmental Management and Logistics Forum.

Run in partnership with the NT Government, NT Resources Week is a leading meeting point for captains of industry in mining, exploration, engineering, oil and gas, constructions and environmental management across northern Australia and South East Asia. It will be held at the Darwin Convention Centre on 27 and 28 October 2021.
