Delegate Testimonials (people that had attended last year’s summit):
“The NG Mining summit has been a tremendous opportunity to mix and network with people from a variety of industries. The single biggest benefit for me has been the ability to interact with people from different parts of the resource industry that have had similar problems and issues.”

“As it was my first summit, I had really high expectations leading up to the event. I was not in any way disappointed. The organisation was world class and a credit to the team at NG Mining. All my meetings were very positive and I could not be happier with the outcomes.”

  • Provide true innovation and value for money.

Director’s message:
“Last year’s summit was a real success, and our fourth NG Mining summit is well positioned to exceed all expectations once again. Our apposite programme will be covering specific investment priorities and common pain points that are present in the industry today, such as recruitment and training issues, OH&S services and products, legislation, risk management and materials handling.”

“I’m really excited about the exceptional calibre of our delegation, and the cutting-edge programme that has been put together by our advisory board, the NG20. We have some real industry giants 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.”
