It is my absolute pleasure to extend a warm invitation to the 9th annual Northern Territory Insurance Conference(NTIC) at the Darwin Convention Centre.
With the unprecedented events of 2020 causing us to postpone the 2020 event, we are excited to have brought this year's conference forward from our usual October schedule to new dates from 28-30 April 2021.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the founding fishing tour, where the true catch of the day was the seeding of this industry event. An idea the industry took to ‘hook, line and sinker’ and ten years on, the conference has grown to become the premier insurance education event in the Northern Territory.
In 2017 the Young Insurance Professionals Northern Territory (YIPs NT) began managing the conference and continued the commitment to expand and improve the event year on year. We are excited to come back in 2021 even stronger with an event truly worthy of the 10-year milestone it represents.
The 2021 theme is ‘The Outback’, celebrating the community spirit and ‘roll up your sleeve’ attitude that makes the Territory one of the most unique places to live and work.
With last year presenting rolling challenges for Australia with the crippling drought, followed by widespread bushfires and then COVID-19, we thought it apt to celebrate the strength and resilience at the heart of ‘The Outback’, that enables rejuvenation and renewal.
And importantly as always, the conference will continue to provide industry professionals practising in the Northern Territory the opportunity to contribute to the sustainability of the insurance sector, as well as undertake professional development at the highest-level, free of charge, right here in Darwin.
Featuring key opportunities to attract aspiring professionals to the industry and increased personal development for existing professionals, delegates and sponsors have the ability to connect with some of the nations most renowned speakers in the fields of general insurance and personal injury management.
This not for profit industry event would not be possible without the support of the industry, so we encourage you to not only attend this free of charge education event but to also consider the many sponsorship opportunities available.
Looking forward to seeing you in April.
President, Young Insurance Professionals NT
