About the Hedland Economic Forum

The Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce Inc, in partnership with BHP Billiton Iron Ore, will host the 2016 Hedland Economic & Resources Forum on Wednesday, 13 July at the Matt Dann Theatre & Cinema in South Hedland.

The forum will bring together business, community and government representatives from across the Pilbara region to build on and extend key themes/discussions from the 2016 North West Economic Summit – Port Hedland, the Next Tide. 

The forum will feature a compelling program of well-known and regarded thought-leaders carefully selected for their knowledge, expertise and ability to encourage a robust dialogue around the forum’s two central themes, which are:

  • Creating our own future – embracing change to increase growth opportunities; and
  • Infrastructure as a key to unlocking Port Hedland’s potential as a competitive international gateway

The 2016 Hedland Economic & Resources Forum will also include national economic and political insights from some of the country’s leading commentators. While some of the region’s biggest industry partners including BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Fortescue Metals Group and Roy Hill will take the stage to provide exclusive project updates.

The Hedland Economic & Resources Forum will provide many outstanding opportunities for business and professional networking with generous breaks and a sundowner event to close.
