“The Property Congress is cited as – the nation’s number one property conference. It tackles the biggest issues driving property development, investment and growth in Australia and Globally.

“Darwin is the perfect backdrop for a program packed with innovative ideas, megatrends, land activation, and what the future holds for the industry.

“We have a real opportunity this September to showcase Darwin as the Capital of Northern Australia and a place that is open and ready for business.

“With the newly commenced direct flights to China, we are in the prime position for investment opportunities.

“Property Congress here in Darwin will offer a great chance to showcase this unique opportunity in September to over 700 senior industry delegates.

“The Top End is an iconic Australian City and this presents a chance to sell the Territory as a top tourist and living destination.

“Being a place that is generally very isolated we have an opportunity to branch out and network with various businesses we wouldn’t usually get to mingle with.

“This opportunity offers a big boost to the Northern Territory. It will expose a wide variety of business and open further opportunities.

“This jam packed 3 day event also allows for an understanding by other city delegates on the problems and challenges we are currently facing in a slow economic climate.”
