In response to the immense need for minerals and metals in strategic industrial ecosystems, the importance of sustainable and dependable sourcing of raw materials continues to rise globally. Relevantly underexplored mineral and metals resources of the Eurasian continent offer significant opportunities. The Conference will serve as a stage for essential conversations regarding the role of the Eurasian mining industry in the supply of Critical Raw Materials and the Development of technological advances making mining less environmentally destructive.
The 11th MINEX Eurasia Conference will take place on 27 November 2023 in London
This event will draw from the experience of over 30 industry experts, senior officials and companies who will discuss the changes, challenges and opportunities in the mining industry in Central Asia, Mongolia, Ukraine and mining hotspots in the Caspian regions.
The conference will offer an opportunity for the presentation of investment projects and changes in the FDI policies aimed at the development of mining hotspots across the Eurasian continent.
The Conference will also feature cases of industry transformation aimed at improving operational efficiency, reducing environmental impact, and creating sustainable social relations in extractive sectors.
Mining and Technology Companies interested in organising corporate presentations at the conference are invited to submit speaker proposals before 29 September.
Individual proposals from speakers should also be submitted before 29 September.
Delegate registration is open online. Register before 15 September to save 33%.
In-person attendees. Participants will be admitted to the venue provided they pre-register before 21 November. If circumstances change and delegates cannot attend the event in person, they can cancel participation before 21 November and receive a 90% refund (10% will be deducted to cover administrative costs).
Remote participants. Viewers will be able to watch free of charge the live broadcast of the conference remotely. To access the conference meeting application, presentation slides and video recordings of the conference, remote participants are expected to register and pay the same admission fee as in-person attendees.
Networking is one of the key parts of the conference. As the audience is relatively small (up to 250 people), participants will be able to meet during networking coffee breaks, and lunch. The conference will end with casual drinks allowing exhibitors, speakers and attendees to meet in one place.
Investors and Supply chain companies (who have booked company presentations or sponsorship packages) will have an opportunity during the conference to schedule private meetings with the incoming regional delegations using the dedicated private meeting room.
Pre-registered qualifying participants will be offered access to the bespoke mobile application a few days prior to the conference. The application features a powerful search engine allowing to search attendees by industry, job title, interests and much more. Once you have preselected attendees you would like to meet at the conference, you can add them to your favourites list and send meeting requests. Confirmed meetings are scheduled in the personal diaries and can be modified and rescheduled. The application will be functioning for around a week after the conference allowing participants who have missed each other to chat and meet privately.
As part of our commitment to reducing environmental footprint across all MINEX Forum events, we will provide all participants with Smart name badge with E-Business cards. The badges are printed on biodegradable material.
The badge will have a QR code which will be linked to the personal accounts of the event participants and securely encrypted on MINEX Eurasia conference website. Participants will be able to update personal information in their accounts changing photo, short profile (up to 200 words), contact details (phone, email, postal address), links to social media, etc.
How does the badge work?
Allow other participants to scan QR code on your badge. Providing their phone has internet connection, they will be able to open your profile and store it on their mobile phone as html or vcf file (which can be exported to MS Outlook). You will be able to control what information is listed or excluded via your online account.
Your personal profile will be supported for 3 months after the conference. You are very welcome to use your badge at other events.
MINEX Forum team is dedicated to organising the conference following UK Government Guidance in a face-to-face event safe environment. If COVID19 restrictions change between now and the event, there is a contingency to run the event online.
The main objective of the conference is to provide a fresh outlook on mining and exploration of primary and secondary raw materials development in Central Asia, Mongolia, the Caspian Region and Ukraine and to stimulate discussion between industry, governments and investors on sustainable mining relying on advanced international knowledge and technology.
MINEX Eurasia Conference will be organised in London in a hybrid format connecting remote and in-person delegates, speakers, and exhibitors. Speakers will be presenting in person and remotely.
Access to the Forum’s sessions as well as a web application and live broadcasts is provided exclusively to registered participants.
Remote viewers will be able to watch the live broadcast of the sessions and send questions to presenters via online chat.
We will allocate some time for answering questions from the audience at the end of each session, panel discussion, or keynote. In-person attendees can ask questions using rowing microphones, while remote viewers can send questions to individual presenters or the whole panel via online chat. The moderators will pre-view all chat questions and ask presenters to answer the most relevant and interesting ones during a live debate or Q&A time. Additionally, all participants can send questions to presenters before, during, and after the event using the contact form published in the online profile of presenters. Legitimate questions will be forwarded to presenters via email by the organisers.
We are planning to organise a live broadcast of the sessions on the conference website. Remote viewers will need to pre-register to receive the link to the broadcast web page. During the broadcast, remote viewers will be able to send questions to presenters via the chat window. The moderators will pre-view all chat questions and ask presenters to answer the most relevant and interesting ones during a live debate or Q&A time. Access to the conference video recordings and presented slides will be offered free of charge to the fee-paying participants. Non-paying viewers will be invited to purchase access to materials after the conference.
