Countdown Begins for Largest Mining Conference Ever
Monday, September 24th, 2007
A multi-year boom in the global mining industry is fueling record attendance and exhibitor interest in MINExpo INTERNATIONAL 2008Â®, the world mining industryâ€™s premier exhibition of mining equipment, technology and services sponsored every four years by the National Mining Association (NMA).
MINExpoÂ® is expected to attract more than 1,200 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors from the U.S. and around the world, making it the largest show of its kind. More than 93 percent of exhibit space at the Las Vegas Convention Center has been sold for the Sept. 22-24, 2008 show.
â€œThis is a must-attend event for professionals in the mining industry around the world, especially here in the U.S., where the mining industry is riding the crest of powerful demand for minerals and metals, for coal and the equipment needed to mine it,â€ said Kraig R. Naasz, president and CEO of NMA.
Timothy W. Sullivan, president and CEO of Bucyrus International, Inc., and MINExpo Chairman says â€œMINExpo gives us the opportunity every four years to bring together all aspects of the industryâ€”people, products and servicesâ€”in one huge demonstration of capability,â€ said Sullivan.
