AIMEX Opens Today! (1 Sept) Largest Indian Delegation Ever

This year the Indian Government is bringing its largest delegation ever to Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) 2015 as part of an event that will allow international networking and showcase some of the newest innovations and cost-saving technologies and from 1-4 September at the Sydney Showgrounds.

Across all four days of the event, attendees can immerse themselves in some of the newest insights and developments to come on the market. Highlights include the exhibition of over 400 exhibitors showcasing the latest mining technology, equipment and services (and attracting thousands of mining personnel) and a seminar and exhibition program focused on cost savings and innovation. 

Robby Clark, Director of REEDMININGEVENTS, says that India has always been a market of interest to Australian suppliers, but is even more so in the light of the current global market adjustments. 
“In association with Austrade, AIMEX this year is hosting the Indian Government’s largest delegation ever to AIMEX 2015. The delegation will be led by The Honourable Minister of Mines for the Government of India, Shri Narendra Singh Tomar, accompanied by heads of several mining companies,” he said. “We continue to have a wide range of international delegates interested in touching base with Australian suppliers at this year’s event.” 

Austrade has arranged business matching opportunities for Australian METS companies to meet with Austrade market specialists, international mining companies and distributors visiting from Chile, India, China, Canada, Myanmar, Mongolia and PNG. This includes:

  • Austrade, in conjunction with NSW Department of Industry, is coordinating an International Mining Networking event with more than 120 booked to attend. Austrade’s CEO Bruce Gosper will also speak briefly at the event.
  • Austrade, in partnership with the Mining Ministry of Ontario, is coordinating a briefing on mining opportunities in Canada for Australian METS companies on Thursday at AIMEX. 
  • Austrade, in partnership with Austmine, is providing two exclusive briefings to visiting international mining companies and distributors on Australia’s leading METS capability in innovation, productivity and safety to improve mining operations around the world. 

The gala networking dinner tonight (1 Sept) includes a panel discussion from industry heavyweights David Moult – MD and CEO of Centennial Coal, Stefanie Loader – MD Northparkes Mine, Chair NSW Mining and Brendan Pearson – CEO of Minerals Council of Australia.
