“Setting the benchmark as the world-class mining investment event and presiding as the convener of global and influential deal-makers to provide the platform that channels billions of dollars in capitalising the African mining value chain remains our core focus and we intend to deliver on this promise for the 2016 annual conference,” says Jonathan Moore, Managing Director of the Mining Indaba. The four-day programme will include international speakers of the highest calibre providing visionary keynotes, insightful panel discussions, new and personalised networking elements, and unparalleled deal-making across Africa’s mining industry.
At the 2016 Mining Indaba – 8-11 February in Cape Town, South Africa – global deal-makers will have the opportunity to contribute to the many discussions, take advantage of the growth opportunities, and take the lead in this increasingly competitive market. The 2016 Mining Indaba will once again be “where the world connects with African mining.” Delegate registration savings remain available; for more information visit http://bit.ly/MiningIndabaReg.
