ADELAIDE, Australia, September 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
On the 16th to the 18th of October 2012, a leading delegation of 65 C-level executives will head to the Stamford Grand Adelaide Hotel in Adelaide, Australia, to attend GDS International's fourth Next Generation Mining Australia summit.
One of the most highly anticipated dates in the mining calendar this year, the NG Mining Australia summit promises to be the most well attended event in the country. The event itself will serve as an arena for C-level executives to meet, network and assess the rapidly evolving topography of the mining sector in a lively, closed-door environment. This year's programme has been specifically structured to cover contemporary, region-specific issues that are presented through a series if interactive workshops, roundtable discussions, and moderated, peer-led panel discussions that give delegates the opportunity to meet with business analysts and solution providers to determine strategies and solutions for the year ahead and beyond.
As an invitation-only event, the NG Mining Australia summit will have a prominent delegation in attendance, with groundbreaking keynote speeches from Warrick Ranson, CCO & VP International Operations for Rio Tinto & Jamie Briggs, MP, Federal Member For MAYO, Coalition Spokesperson on Security for Government Waste.
Delegates such as Samir Vora, COO for Adani Mining; Scott Winter, GM Mining for Tinkler Group; Simon Ridge, Executive Director Mines and Safety, for The Department Of Mines And Petroleum, WA; and Tim Benfield, COO for Kingsgate Consolidated will be in attendance benchmarking, networking and sharing industry best practices. In addition, there will be a dynamic mix of sponsors, including Scania, Integro, AFN Security and Eco Steel Homes joining the conversation.
Glen Lewis, Managing Director for Nu Coal resources, was an attendee at last year's event, and was particularly struck by overall organisation of the summit. In his own words: "The quality of the delegates and the associated networking has really been excellent". Whilst Colin Ford, Business Development Manager for Wirtgen Australia said: "It's been absolutely brilliant, I couldn't have asked for more!"
In this way, the summit is set to provide the perfect environment for key decision makers to liaise and collaborate with their peers, discuss organisational strategies for the future, and establish meaningful working relationships with a dynamic selection of delegates, vendors and sponsors. Offering a unique alternative to the traditional conference format, the summits provide true innovation and value for money.
Gina Perrin, Summit Director for GDS International's NG Mining Australia, says: "I'm very excited about the exceptional calibre of our delegation, and the cutting-edge programme that has been put together by our very own advisory board, the NG20. We have some real industry heavyweights attending this year's event, who, along with our analyst partners and advisory board, guarantee that this summit will be the best the region has ever seen."
