32nd NTCA conference Robust presentations and debate on critical - and sometimes-contentious industry issues - combined with a host of social networking opportunities to reinforce the Northern Territory Cattlemens Associations 32nd annual industry conference as one of its most successful to date. More than 500 delegates packed the Alice Springs Convention Centre for the 18 March conference, arriving from around the country and across the globe to meet and listen to experts on subjects associated with trade, foreign investment, natural resource security and industry matters such as domestic and global beef markets. The forum consisted of three presentation and two panel sessions, including a first ever midday session which debated the question, Is the Balance Right? NTCA conferences are traditionally revered for the high calibre of speakers mustered, and this year was no exception, with an outstanding list of world class speakers bringing vital messages for stakeholders across the full spectrum of the Territory cattle industry. At a Glan ce His Honour the Honourable John Hardy OAM, Administrator of the Northern Territory, officially opened the conference before an audience of cattle producers, business representatives, Government Ministers and MPs, and a host of other Australian and overseas beef industry stakeholders. The day-long Friday conference was complimented by vibrant and informative sponsor displays, Welcome Drinks, the 7th annual photography competition exhibition, another packed-out ladies lunch, speakers field trip and the eagerly anticipated grande finale, the Cattlemens Gala Dinner on the helipad at Double Tree by Hilton. NTCA President Tom Stockwell, delivered a noholds-barred report after his first year at the helm, and applauded the outcome of the 2016 forum. This event has gone from strength to strength and become one of the most eagerly anticipated of its kind on the calender, he said. NTCA Cattlenews - April 20167
