International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) 2017
October 30, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - November 2, 2017 @ 5:00 PM[pending]
The International Mining and Resources Conference is the largest mining industry conference in Australia. The expo has become a summit for industry networking. The expo brings together more than 2500 mining workers, from leaders to policy makers, financiers to educators, all in one space, collaborating and sharing ideas. IMARC is the mecca for anyone working within the resource industry.
IMARC provides a medium for industry figures to meet other important figures and potential partners within the mining field. The conference has gone so far to develop an app that helps attendees schedule one-on-one meetings with other delegates. This app resolves former issues with finding appropriate meeting times and spaces. Building on their networking practices, IMARC has also developed programs that allow attendees to meet senior mining executives. Opening a forum for discussion on future projects and opportunities with industry figureheads.
Last year the expo ran a Round Table Discussion event, which was hosted by US Global Investors, Lion Selection Group, Denham Capital, EMR Capital, Bizzel Capital and other substantial industry figures. The event, working with Mines and Money (the biggest mining investment forum within the country) allowed attendees to discuss investment and sustainability ideas, future concepts and commodity price stabilization.
The event has more in its scope than just investments and finance. IMARC has a strong focus on programs that address future energy schemes, display new mining technology and refine health and safety within the industry. The event is also Australia’s only international mining summit, with foreign delegates and executives always in attendance. This gives delegates another opportunity to discuss global mining with important industry figures.
IMARC 2017 guarantees brand visibility across all platforms of the event for exhibitors. The conference attendance, which has grown into the thousands, allows a company to expand its reach within the mining industry. Exhibiting at the event has proven to be one of the most effective ways to promote a mining industry product or service within established Australian trade conventions, given its exclusivity within the mining industry. Prospective exhibitors can find more information at the IMARC exhibitor webpage, or by calling +61 3 9021 2031 .
