World Indigenous Business Forum 2012

[NSW] Sydney – World Indigenous Business Forum

23 – 24 October 2012

Commencing with an international welcome, Australian and international delegates will gather each day and engage with international, national and local speakers invited to explore the forum theme – Indigenous Economic Development. If you are planning to attend just one conference this year, the World Indigenous Business Forum will be time well spent. This international conference will be held for the first time in Sydney Australia building on the success of previous forums held in New York City in 2010 and 2011. Attending the forum will open doors and provide access to the Indigenous Business Leaders of the World. It is an opportunity to come together and share experiences and insights to raise the level of success for our Indigenous communities globally.
