Book Your Seat at the Annual Investing in African Mining Indaba

It’s that time of year again, the annual Investing in African Mining Indaba is just around the corner. Held in Cape Town, this event is instrumental in aiding the continual growth of mining interests in Africa. This indaba draws the most influential mining minds from across the globe to further growth within the African mining sector. Taking place from the 6th to the 9th of February 2017, the conference will be held at Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). For those already active in the mining industry, attendance is not even an option, it is a must. You can even register on site, so there’s no excuse not to be there.

Investment, Investment, Investment

The focus of the Investing in African Mining Indaba is without doubt investment. Experts from every corner of the industry will discuss important issues and look for ways to increase the long-term investments from which the industry will continue to benefit for the foreseeable future. This is the place for idea sharing, innovation and collective goals to be addressed.

Growing the African Mining Industry One Connection at a Time

In the interest of growing and strengthening connections within the African mining industry, delegates will be given the opportunity to rub shoulders with and attend talks by up to 24 ministers, 29 investors and 27 mining experts. In addition, the Investing in African Mining Indaba has a business matchmaking programme where possible opportunities for companies are identified and matches between them are made based on common interests.
