The leading mining business event in Australia has been launched this year as part of a state inbound trade missions.
The International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) will be held in Victoria, Australia’s largest exporter of mining equipment and technologies.
Global mining giants such as BHP Billiton, MMG, Oceanagold, and Rio Tinto all have headquarters based in the state.
Launched by the Andrews Labor Government, IMMARC will connect global mining leaders with Victorian-based resources companies, as well as training providers and other professional services to support the industry.
This year’s conference will be part of the Victorian Innovation Program (VIP), a state inbound trade mission that attracts buyers and investors to Victoria to network with local businesses.
"The Andrews Labor Government is supporting Victoria’s leading mining sector to showcase their world-class expertise and build new opportunities," said Wade Noonan, minister for industry and employment.
"This year’s conference will be the biggest yet, drawing more than 2,000 delegates from every corner of the globe."
IMARC 2016 will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 7-10 November.
