ADELAIDE, Australia, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Now, more than ever, executives must plan ahead and collaborate with their peers to truly utilise the wealth of mining opportunities to be found in Australia's mineral-rich land. On the 16-18th of October 2012, GDS International will host another of its hugely successful mining events - the Next Generation Mining Australia Summit http://www.ngminingaustralia.com to be held at the sumptuous Stamford Plaza Adelaide Hotel in Australia.
These unique summits provide a stimulating contrast to the traditional event format, and encourage discussion at a truly granular level. Spread out over an intensive two-day programme, the summits comprise lively, peer-led panel discussions, working lunches, closed-door meetings, roundtable discussions and workshops to give delegates the optimal opportunity to network with a dynamic mix of solution providers, sponsors and business analysts.
Last year's summit saw some of the most influential players from across the sector in attendance, and this year will be no different. Scheduled for October's Next Generation Mining Australia summit are Warrick Ranson, Chief Commercial Officer & VP International Operations for Rio Tinto; Brian Reilly, MD for Cameco Australia; Scott Winter, GM Mining for Tinkler Group; Jason Brewer, Executive Director for Continental Coal; and Steve Hubert, GM Mackay Region for Xstrata Coal.
Preparing for the year ahead and beyond, delegates will be assessing the industry and identifying solutions to combat a variety of common pain points from across the sector. The summit's comprehensive programme has been put together by GDS International's very own advisory board, the NG20, and will be covering a range of issues, from recruitment and training, OH&S services and products, to legislation, risk management and materials handling to name a few.
Scania attended last year's summit, and found exceptional value for money in the two-day event. In their own words: "We gained very valuable information on where we need to focus our resources and products, and who the main contacts in the various companies that we need to approach are. The information we gained in two days would have taken us months to find, so the saving to Scania in time and energy was invaluable."
