“The North West Minerals Province - where good news stories keep coming.”

7th to 9th May 2024

Event Details

Conference

The conference is the ideas exchange of the event and brings industry leaders and educators from both the private and public sectors together with other key stakeholders.

The focus for the discussions in 2024 will focus on the pipeline projects in and around Mount Isa. There are dozens of these projects dotted around the entire North West. This event will bring together key stakeholders to share ideas, discuss challenges and seek ways to advance their projects.

Delegates are welcome to attend both conference sessions or select sessions of interest and invest more time in meeting with exhibitors in the main auditorium.

Exhibition

Offering several sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, 2023 Glencore North West MPX exhibitors have access to a select number of exhibition booths and spaces to showcase their business capabilities indoors. Alternatively, outdoor exhibits are warmly invited and will be on the lawn in front of the Civic Centre. This area will be fenced off and security guards employed to protect your displays.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be served on the exhibition floor to ensure delegates attending the forum sessions have ample opportunity and time to meet with exhibitors.

Additionally, the Wednesday afternoon networking event will take place within the exhibition to increase networking opportunities and generate business discussions. Different sponsorship opportunities are available and we invite potential sponsors to consider which option is best for them.
