Please note registration to the 7th IED Forum has closed due to them being fully booked.

The 7th Indigenous Economic Development (IED) Forum will be held in Alice Springs from 18-20 October 2015 at the Alice Springs Convention Centre.

Hosted by the Northern Territory Government, the IED forums are recognised as one of the largest Indigenous economic development specific events held in Australia.

This year’s forum theme is Developing the North, which supports the Northern Territory Government’s push to unlock Northern Australia’s full potential, and aims to provide access to developmental opportunities for Indigenous Territorians.

The forums provide an opportunity for people from a diverse range of backgrounds to come together and advance sustainable economic outcomes for Indigenous Territorians through:

  • promoting services and programs
  • sharing knowledge and experiences
  • exploring opportunities, including business partnerships

An Indigenous Business Expo will also be held as part of the forum providing an opportunity for Indigenous businesses throughout the Territory to showcase their products and services, build their customer base and develop partnerships to help grow their businesses.
