The Australian and international resources sector will be able to access the upcoming Austmine Conference in Perth in May this year, irrespective of travel restrictions.
Austmine, the country’s leading mining equipment, technology and services (METS) industry organisation, is hosting its highly anticipated conference and exhibition in Perth from May 25-27.
It will be one of the largest gatherings of the industry since COVID-19 began, with an outstanding program ensuring an unmissable networking event.
Austmine chief executive Christine Gibbs Stewart said Austmine knew how important this event was to the industry and wanted to ensure everyone was able to get complete access, even in these uncertain times.
“To make sure no one misses out, if boarders close in your state during the conference, we will be providing an alternate conference experience virtually that will give you access to view and engage with the conference from your home or office,” Gibbs Stewart said.
“We understand virtual attendance is not quite the same as getting to experience the in-room atmosphere and opportunity for conversation and collaboration, which is why we are giving 25 per cent refunds to all who are pushed to join virtually due to border restrictions.
“We are however encouraging everyone to purchase full-access tickets to Austmine 2021 to embrace the full experience as we hear from industry experts and explore the importance of optimising our technology, processes and collaboration across the industry.
“We are really conscious of the unprecedented times we face, and although travel is opening up and restrictions are easing, we are wanting to implement a solution ahead of time should any further restrictions arise.”
International guests are invited to view the conference through a virtual platform at a special price.
More than 80 exhibiting companies will attend the 2021 conference, along with a line up of world-class speakers, interactive workshops, educational and networking opportunities, live demonstrations, the collaborative Ideas Exchange, Meet the Miners and the social highlight, the Austmine Industry Leaders’ Dinner and Awards.
