Africa Mining Convention goes live in July
Africa Mining Convention (AFMIC 2021) – the much-awaited virtual mining conference and exhibition – will go live from 13–15 July, making its mark in the continent’s mining industry with a breakthrough virtual convention.
Organised by Valiant Business Media, AFMIC 2021 will host a thoughtfully curated agenda with a series of conference sessions delivered by over 30 renowned speakers from leading companies like Carl ZEISS Microscopy, Nokia, Eaton, ArcelorMittal, Vedanta Zinc International, Vulkan Drive Tech, Continental, Weir Minerals, Wood Mackenzie and more. Such luminaries will be joined by policymakers from major African mining countries including: the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development (Nigeria); Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources (Somalia); Botswana Chamber of Mines; Bureau of Mines and Geology of Burkina (BUMIGEB) – among the key stakeholders in Africa’s mining sector.
With the projected engagement of 1000+ participants, the event will also include an immersive virtual exhibition space for attendees to showcase products, services and solutions; private breakout rooms to arrange one-to-one virtual meetings; integrated chat and video-calling features, alongside the virtual exchange of business cards and other collateral.
Transforming African mining via collaboration and innovation
According to the CEO of Valiant Business Media, Mr Shariq Abdul Hai, the pandemic heavily impacted the events industry and brought business-networking to a standstill due to restrictions on mass gatherings. As such, AFMIC 2021 has been designed to “provide a seamless convening platform for mining professionals to network and forge indelible business partnerships,” he advised.
“We are confident that AFMIC will replicate the experience of the physical event and will be unparalleled in its ability to assemble mining stakeholders who shall take to the virtual stage and deliberate over an effective strategic path to transform the African mining industry through collaboration and innovation,” Mr Abdul Hai continued.
Several influential ministries/dignitaries hailing from high-potential mining jurisdictions of Africa will take advantage of this top-notch platform to introduce their mining projects and huge business opportunities, making AFMIC 2021 timely for participants who seek to take advantage of the enormous mining potential present in Africa – the world’s foremost mining and mineral hub.
