An overview of the upcoming Major Projects Conference in the Northern Territory.
One of the largest infrastructure and construction events held in the Northern Territory returns to Darwin in November.
Now in its twelfth year, the 2023 Northern Territory Major Projects Conference will focus on building the Territory’s future and will be opened by the Treasurer, Minister for Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics, Education and Territory Development, the Hon Eva Lawler MLA.
The two-day event will see Construction Managers, Project Directors, Consultants and Investors come together to hear first-hand insights about projects in the pipeline across the NT and to discuss key industry topics.
The NT Government is investing in the Territory’s future through infrastructure, tourism and growing the economy.
Against this backdrop, the conference will focus on the Territory Government’s record $4.07 billion capital works program.
This includes the significant investment in transport infrastructure, to support tourism and improve access to remote and regional communities.

- Life-sized models unveiled for Melb’s next gen trams
- Milestone for $59M Queensland station upgrade
Featured presentations at the conference include the Darwin Ship Lift being delivered by the Northern Territory Government to establish Darwin as a thriving maritime services industry hub, capitalising on the Northern Territory’s strategic position in the Asia Pacific region and enabling the significant future marine industry park development.
The conference program will also feature Sun Cable’s flagship development project, the Australia-Asia PowerLink project.
This project is expected to create thousands of operational and construction jobs, stimulating opportunities for local businesses and suppliers.
The Land Development Corporation will also present at the conference providing an overview of its projects.
The Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade, along with the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics will also speak at the event.
