Since Mining Indaba was acquired by Euromoney is has continued to undergo significant changes and investment to take it back to a focused deal making forum while supporting the needs of the rest of Africa’s mining industry.
To make this happen, the content is being segmented in 2018 to better support the individual groups that attend Indaba, ensuring there are meeting places for all sections of the industry under one roof with a specific focus on the junior mining community.
You may ask, why is Indaba doing this? It’s simple. We believe that if mining projects get financed, the rest of the industry does well. Not only the mining companies and service providers, but Africa itself.
What is changing and what will you get out of the content in 2018?
- A focus on junior miners sees the launch of the Junior Mining Forum, with it grouped around commodities, you’ll be able to see the best investment opportunities in an efficient format, in a restricted access area.
- Junior Miners that exhibit will be able to bring technical delegates for free* leaving more time for their CEOs to meet with shareholders (while giving service providers the chance to meet with COOs and Heads of Technical amongst many other job titles!)
- An enhanced networking programme including the Investor Drinks on the Tuesday will mean you can meet more mining companies and investors throughout the week.
- The Mining 2050 innovation focused section of the event will mean that COOs, Project Directors and Chief Innovation Officers can understand the best strategy for taking their mining operations to the next level
- The expanded Investment Battlefield – our Dragons Den or Shark Tank style competition – is coming back, bigger and better, to support Junior Miners below a $50 million market cap – you’ll see 24 companies pitching over the week for prizes!
- The Intergovernmental Forum replaces the African Mining Ministerial Forum in 2018 to ensure that African governments can have improved interaction with governments from outside of Africa, alongside mining companies
