Asian Mining Indaba to be launched

The organisers of the very successful Investing in African Mining Indaba, held each year for the past 17 years in Cape Town, South Africa, are now to bring this business event platform to Singapore, with a brand new event to take place October 29-31 next year.  The new event will be called Investing in Asian Mining Indaba – to build on its African counterpart.  Despite Indaba being a Zulu word relating to a meeting between senior tribespeople it has come to mean a meeting or gathering, and International Investment Conferences made excellent use of the term in branding its African Mining event, and hope to build on this now in Asia.

Key to the African event was the huge amount of work the conference organisers put in from the very start to ensure strong attendance from across Africa, particularly involving key government mines ministers, and thus attracting the international mining companies – particularly from Canada initially – who were looking to do business on the African continent.  The writer was involved at the time with helping International Investment Conferences set up and develop the event so is well aware of the amount of time and effort necessary to get a brand new event of this type successfully off the ground.

For the Asian event, the conference organisers now have a tremendous track record among the miners, explorers and developers who may be looking at doing business in the region, but the conference’s success will be very much down to getting the other side of the coin – i.e. the countries wishing to sell themselves as being a place for minerals investment, as well as the Asian investors who are developing a strong appetite for resource stocks. Assuming they can generate the appropriate audience, which they have proved they can do, the organisers should have another successful event on their hands. – Mineweb
