The International Mining and Resources Conference is Australia's largest mining event. Bringing together over 4000 decision makers, mining leaders, policy makers, investors, commodity buyers, technical experts, innovators and educators from over 80 countries for four days of learning, deal-making and unparalleled networking.
The 2017 event centred on the theme of ‘Creating Value Through Collaboration’, and covered all aspects of mining; from exploration to investment, production to optimisation through to new technology, future energy as well as the brand new one day programme on mining infrastructure from pit to port; it truly was the one-stop event for the entire industry.
The exhibition featured over 125 leading companies, showcasing the latest innovations, technology and services for the mining industry. This year’s event will saw the return of Innovation Alley and the popular Mining Hub, which gave investors an opportunity to meet key junior miners and talk with them one-on-one about their projects. In addition the 2017 exhibition featured the brand new KPMG Collaboration Arena as well as International Pavilions where countries put on a display of their leading miners, technologies and innovations from their region.
The exhibition is free to attend and is one of the most effective ways to meet over 4000 mining professionals all under the one roof.
With 20+ networking events and 100+ hours of networking opportunities on offer throughout the 4 days, IMARC is one of the only platforms where you can network with the entire industry and produces tangible outcomes. All delegates receive exclusive access to the one-on-one meeting planner and are invited to attend daily cocktail receptions, round table discussions and the IMARC Gala Dinner (booked separately).
