More than 2,500 mining leaders, policy makers, financiers and other experts from more than 50 countries will converge in Melbourne in a fortnight for Australia's largest international mining and resources event.
The International Mining and Resources Conference will run from Monday 7 November to Thursday 10 November 2016 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The four-day event will cover all aspects of mining, from exploration, investment and production through to optimisation, technology, health and safety, policy and governance. Decision makers from over 150 mining companies will be in attendance to learn from more than 160 international experts.
IMARC also includes Australia's leading mining investment forum, Mines and Money Australia, which connects miners with money and investors with opportunity.
IMARC Event Director Anita Richards said the conference had a firm eye on the future of mining and resources, with a focus on excellence, technology and financing.
"This year's IMARC comes at a pivotal time for the industry as the low commodity prices of recent years have prompted many industry players to reduce costs by innovating and optimising their operations," she said.
"We're now starting to see some commodity prices start to climb, paving the way for renewed interest and investment in the sector.
"Mining and resources remains the powerhouse for the world's economy and development, and IMARC 2016 will bring together leaders in all aspects of the mining value chain worldwide.
"It will be four days of learning, deal-making and networking that will shape the industry for the year to come."
