Digging it: A digital business romance
"The fact that onsite, in-person events were near-impossible during the last year has not diminished the allure of the African mining sector one bit, or should I say one ounce," says an excited Elodie Delagneau, event manager of Africa Mining Forum.
"Quite the contrary," she explains, "providing digital tools for global investors, mining houses, juniors, service providers and local operators has only stimulated this interest and allowed us to continue the conversation, making new friends across the globe, including in important mining nations such as Australia and Canada. Frankly, it has opened up everyone's eyes about digital interaction. It's extremely effective and we've been able to create a similar live buzz that we were used to during our face-to-face meetings in-country."
"I like to call it our digital business romance, I'm digging it!" laughs Elodie. "Who says you can't meet your perfect partner online?"
She adds: "Mine.it Africa - Connect is not the end goal here, but another creative step to keep this interactive community we have created and nurtured alive and kicking, and kicking it is!"
