Miners and investors looking to Indaba 2012

first_imgThe 18th Annual Investing in African Mining Indaba will take place in Cape Town at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from February 6-9, 2012 and will be attended by IM Publisher John Chadwick. With some 6,500 professionals expected, representing more than 1,000 international companies and about 45 African and non-African government delegations from all the major mining countries of the world, Mining Indaba describes itself as “the sector’s largest gathering of influential decision-makers, financiers, investors, stakeholders, mining professionals and governments.”Mining Indaba’s delegations represent 100 countries across four continents. The organisers state: “From Chief Executive Officer of the world’s largest mining company to Chief Investment Officers of renownded international banks, you will find an elite gathering of professionals all interested in one common deonominator – fuelling investments in the African mining value chain.” The objective of the conference is to facilitate the capitalisation and development of African mining interests and as a result it is seen as an ideal platform for companies to build a solid shareholder base. Throughout the 18 years of the Annual Mining Indaba, the organisers in collaboration with South Africa and its African partners estimate they have channelled billions of dollars of foreign investment into the African mining value chain.Speakers are hand-selected and by invitation only, with the aim of making sure they represent as much as possible a who’s who of global economists, international commodities experts, analysts and mining executives. The conference programme features corporate presentations, government and agency presentations regulatory issues and economic development opportunities, global demand and supply master sessions on commodities indigenous to the African continent, critical panel sessions on sustainable development in the mining industry and vital discussions on foreign governments partnering with African nations to further their investment in the region. Mining Indaba’s Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Jonathan Moore comments: “Mining Indaba is a great example of our continued investment in the growth of South Africa. The 2012 conference also reinforces our commitment to offering the widest range of services to maintain Mining Indaba’s renowned event experience, and further validates our position that Mining Indaba is where the world connects with African Mining.”During the 2012 conference, Mining Indaba will also be introducing an addition to its global brand: Investing in Asian Mining Indaba, an annual professional conference dedicated to the capitalisation and development of mining interests in Asia. Similar to the South African one, the Asian event is targeted at the most influential stakeholders – financiers, investors, mining professionals, government delegations – vested in the acceleration of Asian mining.For booking information as well as media accreditation, visit http://www.miningindaba.comlast_img
