Aimex 2015 Offers Mining Professionals Access To Crucial Mets Suppliers

Mining regions throughout the world are facing increasing challenges to their ability to conduct profitable and successful operations due to global economic volatility, reductions in commodity prices, restricted budgets and fewer personnel. Despite these challenging conditions, the Australian mining industry is forecasted to generate $233.7 billion in revenue, including a profit of $90.7 billion, from over 5,826 enterprises*.

As the world’s largest mining exhibition in 2015, AIMEX will provide mining professionals with the innovations they require to meet these challenges, with a thirty-five year history of delivering the largest concentration of METS suppliers to Asia-Pacific’s mining industries.

Beyond the extensive number of product and service launches from exhibiting METS suppliers at AIMEX, attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in various speaker sessions and panel discussions focused on strategy development, knowledge-sharing and innovation updates, as well as networking functions including the AIMEX Industry Dinner.

The METS suppliers that will feature at AIMEX will be showcasing a range of products, technology and services that provide crucial operational efficiencies and cost-savings.

Over 300 suppliers have already been confirmed for AIMEX this year, including major global suppliers BASF, Caltex, Cummins, Davey Bickford, Eaton Industries, Falk Australia, Flexco, Hexagon Mining (Devex Mining, Leica Geosystems Mining, MineSight & SAFEmine), Hitachi, Kal Tire, Mobile Conveying Services, NHP Electrical Engineering Products and the Sew-Eurodrive Group.

According to Neville Judd, Communications Director of Hexagon Mining, AIMEX 2015 will provide a unique business opportunity for both attendees and exhibiting suppliers.

“There is no substitute for face-to-face business. AIMEX delivers a valuable opportunity for Hexagon Mining to make a lasting impression on key industry players with innovative products and a mission to shape smart change.”

The world’s largest mobile conveyor, the Putzmeister Telebelt TB200, is also set to feature at AIMEX, with Mobile Conveying Services identifying AIMEX as providing an innovation platform to industry professionals.

 “While the physical size of our TB200 will get immediate attention, AIMEX provides us with an opportunity to showcase our products and services in an environment where there is a concentration of key industry people in one location, all looking for something new or different that can assist their operations to better manage current and future challenges and opportunities.” Mr Graeme Cooney, Director of Mobile Conveying Services, said.

AIMEX will be held from 1-4 September 2015 at the Sydney Showground, Olympic Park, NSW.
