Speakers | Program Overview

Some 60% of the world’s population live in tropical regions, yet only 5% of Australians lives North of the Tropic of Capricorn. That same 5% contributes to 50% of Australia’s GDP.

In the last few years at MEA national conferences we have opened our minds, learnt about meetings and events in a new world, understood that meetings mean business and enjoyed a brilliant blend. This year we are going to ignite the conversation as our industry and world moves through a period of unprecedented change.

Darwin is Australia’s only capital city of the North and the Tropics. It is the closest capital city to Asia and many commentators believe our future lies North of our shores. Some 60% of the world’s population live in tropical regions, yet only 5% of Australians lives North of the Tropic of Capricorn. That same 5% contributes to 50% of Australia’s GDP. Some would say that the NT is the last frontier, we say it is the next frontier.

The program for 2013 will challenge the norms while providing perspective of Australian society and business in a global context as we move through the Asian Century. We have assembled some of the best and brightest minds in the Australian Business Events industry who will as a collective produce an intelligent, thought provoking and highly relevant program.

We invite you to Darwin NT to be inspired and ready to ignite the conversation!
