100+ confirmed exhibitors for welcome return of flagship industry event
“We are ready to embrace the recovery and celebrate the mining sector which has once again proven its resilience amidst a global and sweeping pandemic,” says Emmanuelle Nicholls, the Group Director, Mining and Natural Resources at Clarion Events Africa, who have been the organisers of DRC Mining Week for the last 17 years.
“DRC is still an exciting destination for investors and business in the sector has by no means come to a standstill,” Nicholls adds. “On the contrary, the planning and roll-out of new projects have continued while the prices for copper and cobalt have hit record levels!”
Dates for live event confirmed
The organisers of the annual DRC Mining Week expo and conference this week confirmed that the next live, in-person edition of this flagship industry event in Africa’s most exciting mining destination, will return to Lubumbashi from 5-6 October this year.
Says Nicholls: “Along with our partners in the mining community we are excited to be back with a 2-day event that will be held within strict COVID-19 protocols and safety regulations. We know that while everyone is desperate to connect and do deals, we take the health and welfare of our clients and visitors very seriously. We will therefore make sure that social distancing, sanitising, mask wearing, elbow knocking instead of shaking hands and other regulations are observed.”
