Minister for Energy and Resources, Lily D’Ambrosio and resource sector industry stakeholders met last week to launch the second annual International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) that will be held from 9 – 13 November in Melbourne.
IMARC connects the international mining and resources industry with global investors, government and technology through master classes, presentations, debates and structured matchmaking to provide a one-stop marketing intelligence, profile and business development solutions.
Ms D’Ambrosio said the conference will strengthen Melbourne’s reputation for holding large world class events and give mining and resource businesses the chance to grow their business and promote their capability in the mining sector internationally.
“We’re supporting Victoria’s resource sector to attract more investment, explore, innovate and create jobs,” the Minister said.
Last year’s inaugural conference attracted over 2,000 delegates from more than 31 countries and Ms D’Ambrosio said she was confident that this year’s edition will spark even greater interest from global leaders from government, investment, exploration and research and development.
“We urge manufacturers, technology and service providers to embrace opportunities and attend IMARC, to promote their capability to the resources sector in Australia and abroad,” she said.
According to Ms D’Ambrosio, the Andrews Labor Government will be hosting the “Promoting Best Practice Regulation and Policy Excellence” event as part of IMARC, where resources ministers and senior business leaders from around the world will gather to discuss critical issues facing the sector.
“The Andrews Labor Government looks forward to welcoming resources ministers and senior business representatives from across the world to Melbourne in November,” the Minister concluded.
