The Katherine Regional Mining & Exploration Forum will be celebrating its 5th birthday on 23-24 May 2017 at the Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts & Cultural Centre in Katherine.

Informa and the Katherine Mining Services Association with the support of the Northern Territory Government are delighted to welcome you to this annual meeting place for industry and major projects leaders to discuss regional development opportunities and grow relationships with local and national businesses involved in the region.

The Katherine Conference is a collegial event that brings together key industry leaders with major and local businesses to further develop collaboration strategies and partnerships. The event provides a key platform to promote Katherine’s suite of product and capabilities servicing the mining, exploration and oil & gas industries, as well as the construction and agriculture sectors.

Delegates will be able to catch up in a relaxed environment at our exciting pre-event networking events, including the KMSA Golf Day and Welcome Reception, both held on Monday 22nd May at the Katherine Country Club Golf Course. There will also be an Industry Conference Dinner in the evening of Day One. For more information, please check out the Networking Events section.
