Why Should We Join Austmine?

Networking Events

  • Austmine holds 12 – 15 free lunches and breakfasts per year around the country for our members, called our CEO Leadership Events. These are GM and above level only events, where we invite a senior mining company speaker along to present on their current project, supplier opportunities, technological innovations or points of interest. Attendance is limited to 30 and the invitation goes out to the most senior person in the company in that state. You are able to nominate a replacement representative of a suitable seniority if unable to attend.
  • Austmine is involved in two major conferences over the next 12 months: Austmine 2017 and IMARC 2017. At both conferences, Austmine members receive significant discounts on delegate passes, invitations to 2 VIP complimentary networking functions with mining companies and the ability to submit for our awards at Austmine 2017. They also receive $2000 off the price of a booth at Austmine 2017.

We devise 4 – 6 questions based on industry challenges and trends, that relate to your offerings and the interview would be conducted over the phone before editing and sending to you for approval.
  • Austmine hosts 3 – 4 webinars a month, running across a range of topics including mining regions, commodities, technical topics such as digital mining, water management or supply and logistics. Only Austmine members are allowed to speak on these webinars, in either the form of a short 15 minutes thought leadership  presentation or a panellist. When you speak on a webinar, you receive all the marketing promotion of your brand on the event, the delegate list of registrations and the recording file afterwards to share with clients, prospects or colleagues.
