Sydney, Australia: 250 students from schools across NSW will be attending Day 3 of the 10th International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) in Sydney to trial some of the industry’s newest and most exciting technologies.
The opportunity is thanks to IMARC’s new NextGen program, which is aimed at inspiring younger generations to consider a career in mining and resources.
The NextGen IMARC event includes trying out Virtual Reality Headsets, ‘Gravitrax’ construction, ‘Snap Circuits’ (electronic circuit assembly), the ‘Turing Table’ (a marble powered computer-building game to solve puzzles) and, for the first time, hydrogen mini-car races.
Interviews and photos with students and key industry figures will be available.
IMARC 2023 is already setting records, with more than 8,500 delegates, 600 speakers, 500 exhibitors and 50 government delegations from 115 countries, making it the biggest IMARC ever and Australia’s largest business event.
With its focus on connecting investors and miners, IMARC has already facilitated around 3,000 B2B meetings, which is nearly 50% up on last year, paving the way for what is expected to be a record number of deals done on the floor.
Highlights of Day 3 include:
- A focus on mining and space, and how to future proof the industry
- A panel of ‘Industry Legends’ reflecting on what mining was and needs to become.
- The next generation of mining investor and what is driving them
- The grand final of the Mining Pitch Battles
- Global star Idris Elba exploring gold’s meaning and contribution to societies and economies all over the world in an exclusive viewing of Gold: A Journey with Idris Elba, presented by the World Gold Council.
