Big boost for town

Broome Advertiser - - NEWS - Jakeb Wad­dell

One of the big­gest con­fer­ences ever staged in Broome is set to be­gin on Tues­day.

The 2018 Na­tional Na­tive Ti­tle Con­fer­ence, Many Laws, One Land, will high­light op­por­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges for na­tive ti­tle.

The three-day event at the Ca­ble Beach am­phithe­atre is ex­pected to boost the lo­cal econ­omy, with more than 800 del­e­gates trav­el­ling to Broome and 30 busi­nesses en­gaged to pro­vide ser­vices.

Kim­ber­ley Land Coun­cil act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive Ty­ronne Gar­stone said the or­gan­i­sa­tion was “ex­tremely proud to be bringing an event of this size and cal­i­bre to Broome”.

“The con­fer­ence is the pre­miere event for peo­ple work­ing within the na­tive ti­tle sec­tor and is key to the con­tin­ued ad­vance­ment of Abo­rig­i­nal rights in re­la­tion to na­tive ti­tle,” he said.

Key speak­ers in­clude Sen­a­tors Pat Dod­son and Nigel Scul­lion, and Pro­fes­sor Michael Lavarch.
