“The Future Of Mining” – Hear What Rio Tinto & The Australian Government Have To Say.
On the 16th to the 18th of October 2012, a leading delegation of 65 C-level executives will head to the Stamford Grand Adelaide Hotel in Adelaide, Australia, to attend GDS International's fourth Next Generation Mining Australia summit.
As an invitation-only event, the NG Mining Australia summit will have a prominent delegation in attendance, with groundbreaking keynote speeches from Warrick Ranson, CCO & VP International Operations for Rio Tinto & Jamie Briggs, MP, Federal Member For MAYO, Coalition Spokesperson on Security for Government Waste.
Delegates such as Samir Vora, COO for Adani Mining; Scott Winter, GM Mining for Tinkler Group; Simon Ridge, Executive Director Mines and Safety, for The Department Of Mines And Petroleum, WA; and Tim Benfield, COO for Kingsgate Consolidated will be in attendance benchmarking, networking and sharing industry best practices. In addition, there will be a dynamic mix of sponsors, including Scania, Integro, AFN Security and Eco Steel Homes joining the conversation.
Glen Lewis, Managing Director for Nu Coal resources, was an attendee at last year's event, and was particularly struck by overall organisation of the summit. In his own words: "The quality of the delegates and the associated networking has really been excellent". Whilst Colin Ford, Business Development Manager for Wirtgen Australia said: "It's been absolutely brilliant, I couldn't have asked for more!"
In this way, the summit is set to provide the perfect environment for key decision makers to liaise and collaborate with their peers, discuss organisational strategies for the future, and establish meaningful working relationships with a dynamic selection of delegates, vendors and sponsors. Offering a unique alternative to the traditional conference format, the summits provide true innovation and value for money.
Gina Perrin, Summit Director for GDS International's NG Mining Australia, says: "I'm very excited about the exceptional calibre of our delegation, and the cutting-edge programme that has been put together by our very own advisory board, the NG20. We have some real industry heavyweights attending this year's event, who, along with our analyst partners and advisory board, guarantee that this summit will be the best the region has ever seen."
