Sydney to host largest resource sector conference

Australia’s largest resources sector event, the International Mining and Resources Conference and Expo (IMARC), will take place this year in Sydney for the first time ever.

IMARC 2022, to be held at the International Convention Centre (ICC Sydney) from November 2–4, will provide the premier opportunity for Australia to host a global discussion about the important role of the mining and resources sector in a strong and sustainable future.

Innovation and productivity improvements will be central themes of this year’s conference, as well as the transition to a lower emissions future.

Established in 2014, IMARC is Australia’s mining and resources marquee event where global leaders from nearly 100 countries in mining, resources, technology, finance, and ESG connect with decision and policy makers.

IMARC managing director Anita Richards said the move to Sydney was an exciting opportunity and comes on the back of record registrations and sponsorship enquiries.

“After two years of disruption, including the impact on international travel and major events, the response to this year’s event has been overwhelming and we are excited by the opportunity. A new location is an opportunity to present a global event that connects with new audiences, new delegates and new topics that reflect the complex issues facing the sector, including ESG, climate change and the decarbonisation of the global economy,” she said.

“We are excited to be reconnecting with our global community in a new setting, and welcoming new voices to the conversations about the challenges and opportunities ahead.”
