The Department of Trade, Business and Innovation are inviting organisations to host a partner event as part of the October Business Month (OBM) program.

Held annually, OBM provides Territory businesses access to a month-long program of inspirational and educational events.

Almost 9,000 people attended OBM in 2018, a record breaking attendance from previous years.

OBM is the perfect platform to show the Territory business community what you do and how you add value to your sector. Your events should be aimed at educating, helping and giving local and practical advice to other Territory businesses.

The OBM team are implementing a range of new initiatives to increase small business attendance and to continue to make event partners and attendees experience with the program as positive as possible.

New initiatives include:

  • a new online systems for all events
  • increased accessibility by offering free webinars, thanks to Charles Darwin University, and
  • caps on the number of events held each day.

All interested event partners are invited to an information session in late May, where we will talk through all the changes, hear from experts to help you with your event and ask questions directly to the event organisers.

Register to attend the event partner information session.

Event partner registrations are open until 1 June 2019.
