Technological advancements, workforce changes, community collaborations and environmentalchallenges are just some of the concepts that will be grappled with at Australia’s largest and longest running mining exhibition and conference in August.
Speakers and key topics of the free-to-attend conference have been announced for Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) 2019 edition and the impressive line-up for the three-dayevent will provide visitors with a unique opportunity to hear from mining innovators at the same venue where the technology is on show.
Sponsored by Davey Bickford Enaex, the AIMEX conference has been developed with direct input and consultation from key mining personnel, industry associations as well as key mining companies.
On the opening day, a panel of speakers from across the mining spectrum will dissect the industry’s image and discuss ways that the mining sector and the community can work more collaboratively together in the future. Mach Energy’s Ngaire Baker, Mark Jacobs from Yancoal, Dr Kieren Moffat from the CSIRO and Anna Littleboy from the University of Queensland will lead the discussion.
A highlight of Day two will be the panel discussion on how the mining community can reinvent its approach to talent acquisition and retention for today’s agile, digital, mobile, analytical, and technologically driven workforce.
Mining Leaders Group Founder Brett Cunningham, CEO of Weld Australia Geoff Crittenden and Jamie Frankcombe, Whitehaven Coal’s Chief Operating Officer will lead the thought-provoking discussion that will exchange ideas and share current thinking to prepare for tomorrows demands in areas such as recruiting, educating schools, upskilling and diversity.
Other highlights of the conference include Dr John Cronin’s presentation on using telepresence technologies for the safe deployment of wireless mesh networks and underground inspection robots in mines, cross-industry learnings from the Oil & Gas industry that define and mitigate HMI risk with technology and analytics and the final day panel which looks at adapting to climate change, emissions and what does this look like for the mining sector?
AIMEX Exhibition Director Brandon Ward said no other mining event gives you access to this volume of suppliers and this calibre of speakers for free.
“AIMEX is about pushing boundaries and challenging operations and business to innovate not just through technology but through workforce practices, social engagement and policy reform,” said Ward.
“This year’s AIMEX Conference is our most extensive yet which means mining professionals have a forum for open and transparent dialogue that will drive the sector forward.”
