OBM is the Northern Territory’s premier annual business event providing Territory businesses a month long program of inspirational and educational events.

2022 will see a focus on building knowledge on key business themes such as digital transformation, workforce, growth, leadership, human connection, strategy and policy.

Keynote speakers will tell their inspiring real life stories of resilience, leadership and personal growth, supported by our local Territory success stories.

This year also sees the return of OBM Partner Events, independently hosted events delivered by Territory business and industry as part of the broader program.
