Innovation Roadshow Returns to Perth
With mining companies across the world considering their approach to driving sustainable future growth, Austmine is bringing the industry together to explore and unpack automation, energy, partnerships and more at their Perth Mining Innovation Roadshow.
Taking place on Thursday 19th March 2020, this one-day conference will feature insightful case study presentations of successful technology adoption, strategic roadmaps for major mining houses, breakout problem-solving groups and exclusive opportunities to connect with Australia’s mining innovation leaders.
Austmine is the leading industry association for the Mining Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) sector. With an aim to develop and drive sustainable growth of the METS sector, forums such as the Innovation Roadshow are critical in connecting the mining industry ecosystem to find opportunities for shared value and technological progress.
The Perth event will be the 5th edition of the Innovation Roadshow, which has also previously stopped in Brisbane, Newcastle and Adelaide.
Previous Austmine events have demonstrated the power of driving open conversations throughout the mining value chain and providing platforms for cooperative approaches to major industry challenges.
Robert Trzebski, COO, Austmine reflected on the impressive group thinking to emerge from the last roadshow in Adelaide, which featured participation from mining companies such as BHP, OZ Minerals and Société Le Nickel, along with industry-leading METS organisations such as Liebherr, Downer and Maptek.
“It is incredible what can be achieved when a diversity of thinkers are brought together to tackle common challenges.”
“At the roadshow, it was particularly pleasing to observe the plethora of ideas generated to drive more sustainable practices in the mining industry. Attendees closely linked social licence opportunities with technological breakthroughs we have seen in spaces such as artificial intelligence and simulation, ultimately focusing on ensuring a prosperous future for our employees, businesses and communities.”
From these discussions, focus groups have emerged and relationships have been established to turn ideas into commercial opportunities and collaborative undertakings.
The Perth event will seek to build-upon this discussion and drive the innovation conversation forward.
“We are looking forward to hosting discussions in Perth, which has truly emerged as a global mining innovation hub. There will be a tremendous amount of knowledge to be captured and shared about local innovation and capabilities, including autonomous mining, energy transformation and mineral extraction.” Trzebski said.
“With the roadshow demonstrating the best in Australian mining innovation, the METS sector should be excited and optimistic about the future.”
