IMARC set to exceed industry expectations

The International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Melbourne this week is set to exceed industry expectations, having confirmed more than 3500 people to attend – a 40 per cent increase on last year’s attendance.

IMARC general manager — Asia Pacific Anita Richards said the surge in delegate numbers was a testament to the 2017 program and the growing international reputation of the conference.

“IMARC is now clearly the largest mining and resources event in Australia,” Richards said.

“Last year’s IMARC saw us play host to more than 2500 delegates from more than 50 countries. This year more than 3500 delegates will attend from 77 countries.

“There is truly no other event in Australia that allows mining professionals to network and engage with so many colleagues in one place — and connect with decision makers from so many different nations.”

Over four days, attendees can expect to hear from over 180 speakers discussing mining excellence, mining infrastructure, mining investment, technology innovation and optimisation, social responsibility and future energy and enjoy over 45 hours of networking opportunities, including the flagship gala dinner with headlining speaker Mick Wilkes of OceanaGold.

Furthermore, over 100 leading companies will showcase the latest innovations, technology and equipment the industry has on offer within the free exhibition that runs concurrent to the conference.

The International Mining and Resources Conference will run from October 30 to November 2 2017 with the free exhibition running from November 31 to November 2.
