Mining, Oil & Gas & Natural Resources Conferences

Informa hold a series of mining conferences, not only in Australia but also in mining hotspots around the globe. In fact we have held mining events on nearly every continent so far. Our mining conferences cover both operational issues and commodity specific topics relating to iron ore, coal, nickel and mineral sands, amongst others. Flagship event, Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast, attracts several hundred industry leaders each year in Perth, to analyse the iron ore market. One of our leading operational events is the Longwall Conference, held each year in the Hunter Valley. We also hold a range of regional events focusing on mining hotspots across both Australia as well as global mining conferences in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Our biggest resources event is the NT Resources Week. Held each year in association with the Northern Territory Government, the event comprises of three conferences: SEAAOC (South East Asia Australia Offshore & Onshore Conference); Mining the Territory; and Building the Territory. The event attracts 1500+ attendees and the exhibition fills the Darwin Convention Centre. NT Resources Week also features a number of networking events.
