'Deadly' business trade show coming to Darwin, Alice Springs

David Prestipino -

An exciting trade show will soon give Aboriginal businesses a platform to network, promote their brand, launch new products and discover new and innovative trends relevant to their respective sectors.

The Northern Territory Indigenous Business Network has announced the Blak Business Trade Show would be held in Darwin next month and Alice Springs in August, showcasing a diversity of Indigenous businesses ranging from construction and consultancy, to arts and creatives.

The event was designed to provide a profile to prospective clients and networks for individuals and businesses to increase distribution and consumption of their products to a range of people.

NTIBN chief executive officer, Jerome Cubillo told National Indigenous Times the trade show would give Aboriginal people a great opportunity to network with other businesses and share ideas to help boost their profile and encourage growth.

"The event will allow them to get on the same page about business trends that might assist them to build their own brand, and participate in a sometimes competitive market," Mr Cubillo said.

"This will be a good chance to demonstrate innovative business ideas, and for established businesses to continue to lead Blak excellence as entrepreneurs and leaders in this space."

Mr Cubillo said the Blak Business Trade Show was also an opportunity for businesses to increase their brand visibility to the wider community, and highlight the range of Indigenous business services across several sectors.

"The Trade Show will showcase a variety of products developed by Aboriginal people, to show what they have to offer within their specialised areas of business," he said.

Mr Cubillo urged NTIBN members to register early so as not to miss the incredible opportunity, as limited exhibition space would be available at the events - in Darwin on May 10, and Alice Springs on August 16.

"NTIBN partners and Ally members, get along and check out the incredible Blak Businesses you can engage in your supply chain," he said.

"We're looking forward to seeing our incredible and diverse businesses showcase their deadly talent."

Those interested can secure an exhibitor spot by contacting NTIBN on 1300 192 164 or emailing [email protected] by Friday April 26.
