Asia Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) is counting down to a strong return in Sydney this year. Held from 5-7 September at Sydney Showground, the trade exhibition and free-to-attend conference is Australia’s longest-running mining event.

For thousands of decision-makers, experts and suppliers, AIMEX is a destination to build networks and product knowledge alike, as the ultimate sourcing platform for business and operational needs.

Events like AIMEX always have a strong focus on mining’s contribution to the Australian economy, as well as a collaborative approach to knowledge-sharing. Stephen Galilee, CEO of industry body NSW Mining, believes the long-awaited AIMEX 2023 will live up to these standards.

“Mining is critical to the NSW economy, providing direct jobs for over 40,000 people while supporting thousands more jobs in more than 7,300 mining supplier businesses in NSW. 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.

With hundreds of local and international mining industry suppliers expected to attend, attendance at AIMEX 2023 is a great opportunity to showcase the best our industry has to offer, including the latest developments in global mining technologies, and to share knowledge and experiences across the sector,” said Mr Galilee.

The free-to-attend conference, running alongside the extensive trade exhibition, will provide access to industry insights, case studies and thought leaders speaking about the future of mining across decarbonisation in mining, technical innovation and ESG.

AIMEX Exhibition Director Samantha Martin says the 2023 conference will start conversations that have never been more relevant to the Australian mining industry.

“At AIMEX, we’ve always been proud of the way we bring up-to-date content and forward-thinking suppliers into the spotlight. The fact is, mining will continue to play a strong part in the Australian economy as we gather the critical minerals needed for decarbonisation – which inescapably includes coal.

“I’m particularly looking forward to this year’s conference where experts will really unpack some key topics and help move the industry forward in a commercially sustainable way.”

In a similar vein, the exhibition will showcase over 250 exhibitors where attendees can meet face-to-face and do business with local and international suppliers. Come and see industry-leading products from Atlas Copco, XCMG Mining Equipment, Bosch Rexroth, Motion Australia, Global Pumps and more.

The popular Mining House Pavilion will return, giving attendees the opportunity to engage directly with major local producers. Glencore and Whitehaven Coal have already confirmed their participation.

Two new pavilions are also joining the exhibition this year: the Transformative Technology Pavilion and the Decarbonisation Zone. In parallel with the conference themes, these areas will house leading suppliers and experts, ready to discuss real solutions.

And what would AIMEX be without networking?

The event will feature two major peer-to-peer networking events – an industry networking function hosted in conjunction with NSW Mining, and an Austmine networking event. Austmine CEO Christine Gibbs Stewart says AIMEX represents a brilliant opportunity for the METS sector in Australia to showcase their technological and innovation capacity.

“The operating environment in 2023 has become more challenging compared to the last AIMEX event in 2019, and opportunities like this to gather, learn and network are more valuable than ever. Australia’s exceptional reputation for expertise and innovation in mining and METS makes a showcase like AIMEX a must-attend event.

“The addition of the Transformative Technology Pavilion and the Decarbonisation Zone reflects our focus on the energy transition and the importance of our world-leading technologies in leading the way.”
