About Us

Northern Territory Major Events Company (NTMEC) is a dynamic organisation that delivers and supports significant events across the Territory.

Owned by the Northern Territory Government, NTMEC was established in 1999 with the responsibility of identifying, attracting and facilitating significant community entertainment, sporting and cultural events.

Our first event was to host a round of the V8 Supercars Championship (now the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship). The Supercars have remained one of the Territory's biggest events, attracting thousands of local, interstate and international patrons to Hidden Valley for a weekend of high energy entertainment. In 2017 we will celebrate the 20th hosting of the Supercars Championship in Darwin.

Over the years, we have delivered some of the most iconic events in Australia including music festivals, car shows, Anzac Centenary celebrations and more.

Our talented team are based at the head office in Darwin and also our office in Alice Springs.

FestivalsNT joined NTMEC in 2015, combining our shared purpose of supporting and facilitating events in the Territory. NTMEC, with FestivalsNT, provides funding to a variety of existing and new events.
