Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) 2023 feature a collaborative approach to knowledge-sharing and a strong focus on mining’s contribution to the Australian economy.
AIMEX is one of Australia’s longest running mining events and has continued to be a destination for decision-makers, experts and suppliers since its inception.
This year, the exhibition will be held from September 5–7 at the Sydney Showground after a four-year hiatus.
NSW Mining chief executive officer Stephen Galilee believes the long-awaited AIMEX 2023 will live up to the standards set by past exhibitions.
“Mining is critical to the New South Wales economy, providing direct jobs for over 40,000 people while supporting thousands more jobs in more than 7300 mining supplier businesses in New South Wales,” he said.
“Australia is known for its mining expertise, our professionalism and our commitment to safety. This strong track record means our highly skilled people, our technology, and our services are utilised by many mining operations around the world.”
AIMEX 2023 will feature a free conference covering themes from decarbonisation to technical innovation and waste management. Exhibition director Samantha Martin said conversations like these are essential for industry’s future.
“Australia’s transition to a green energy future will not happen without mining and METS (mining equipment, technology and services) and while the country is well placed to lead this transition, innovation and collaboration across the supply chain have never been more important,” Martin said.
“Mining companies are no longer just looking for products that boost efficiency or lower costs; they also need products and services that meet their environmental, social and governance (ESG) obligations.
“AIMEX will illustrate the sector’s transition to a net-zero future with a dedicated product zone that will be complemented key topics in the AIMEX conference program.”
Whitehaven Coal executive general manager of people and culture Daniel Cram said participating in AIMEX 2023 was an easy decision.
“In such a tight talent market, it makes sense to maximise our opportunities to connect with both potential employees and suppliers, and AIMEX is a really convenient way to do exactly that,” Cram said.
