MINING, oil and gas are important business areas to be highlighted at this year’s NT Expo.

After consulting Territory industries and businesses, NT Expo organisers have fine-tuned the exposition to enhance its place as an instrumental trade event.

The exhibition will now have a sharper focus and feature five key business sectors: information technology and communications, mining, oil and gas, food and beverage, holiday and travel and building innovations/ technologies.

The mining, oil and gas sector has already created excitement with major companies such as Energy Resources of Australia, Woodside Petroleum and Draeger Australia exhibiting.

With billion dollar projects underway and prospects for liquefied natural gas plants and supply bases on the drawing board, the Northern Territory is poised for a lucrative future.

Complementing this is industry body, the NT Minerals Council Inc. which, with its members, organised specialist seminars and displays for the Expo.

The special section for mining, oil and gas will incorporate displays from operators and supply and services businesses.

A special mining, oil and gas seminar

is being held on July 7 at the MGM Grand Hotel in Darwin.

NT Expo 99 will be held from 7 to 11 July and is expected to attract more than 300 exhibitors from Australia, Asia and the Pacific region.

After almost 30 years, NT Expo has evolved into being the highlight of the Territory’s business calendar and enjoys top billing as Australia’s foremost annual international trade and industry exhibition.
