The 13th International Mining and Exploration Forum – MINEX Russia 2017 will take place at the Radisson Slavyasnkaya in Moscow on 10 – 12 October 2017. Organised under the main theme “Mining in Russia – moving up with the buoyant markets” the Forum will provide an industry-wide discussion on Russia’s mining industry growth scenarios and its ability to renew mineral resource base, develop infrastructure, train personnel and introduce more efficient solutions to reduce the costs and improve efficiency.
The Forum is held in Russia since 2005 and is considered as one of the most important and authoritative events on Mining and Exploration in Russia and the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union. MINEX Russia Forum regularly brings together over 500 heads of industrial companies from Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, countries of the European Economic Community, China, Mongolia, North America, Southeast Asia, Africa, Latin America and Australia.
The market conditions in the Russian mining industry are currently aligned in a way that created a perfect window of opportunity to market fresh technology to Russian companies: thanks to favourable exchange rates and lower costs Russian mining companies recently found themselves having some breathing space- and with it the resources to modernise and invest in new technologies. Personal and direct contacts with Russian miners are essential for bypassing trade barriers created by politicians and selling directly to the industry.
Success is often attributed to being at the right place at the right time, as many lament the state of mining currently Russia provides some great opportunities in the industry, all you have to do is position yourself right and take them and MINEX Russia Forum is the ideal platform to do so.
MINEX Russia Forum win-win formula
MINEX Russia Forum formula offers a unique formula for selling to the Russian mining sector. From a purely marketing perspective MINEX Russian Forum provides international participants a unique opportunity the hangar trade-shows can rarely match. The MINEX Russia Forum annually brings together over 500 delegates facilitating opportunities for meeting in just two days key decision makers in the Russian mining industry.
Many tech conferences and big trade-shows are designed to serve the needs of engineers, who then have to “sell” their CEO, COO and CFO the technology they saw at the show. This takes valuable time and often bears no results. In a similar way, forums that market innovations to top decision makers often fail to encourage companies to breach the gap between marketing and practical implementation, since people who are the boots on the ground of day to day operations are not present to be able to assess the potential efficiency gains or be able to get answers to important empirical questions.
The highly refined and focused content of the MINEX Forum agenda attracts top decision makers who rarely visit trade shows. The content rich Forum program of plenary sessions, master classes, panel discussions and networking sessions also attract ops managers, engineers and tech people who often accompany top managers to the Forum. This best of both worlds approach creates a unique platform that places MINEX Forum in a position where the decision makers can evaluate technologies and services on offer while the tech people can discuss concrete plans for their efficient implementation. This combination provides a perfect climate for signing agreements on the spot.
A concise exhibition with circa 50 high visibility stands and booths at the conference is purpose built to make innovative products stand out and not get lost in the sea of common and inferior products offered by other companies like it often happens at big tradeshows. All exhibitors can arrange their product or service demonstrations at the “free for visitors” MineTech competition sessions organised alongside the show. The representatives of break-thorough technologies are often invited to participate in the panel discussions at the main Forum which gives them a chance to present their case to the top managers.by
