Welcome to Montréal!
“New State of Mine” is the theme that will drive topics of discussion at the upcoming CIM 2017 Convention taking place in Montreal from April 30 to May 3, 2017. Mining will be examined through the lens of safety, innovation, employment, leadership, and much more, as well as a strong technical program. More than 6,000 mining industry professionals are expected to take in the events at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal.
CIM’s commitment to engage and give a voice to the full range of technical, business and corporate social responsibility stakeholders in this industry makes CIM 2017 a catalyst in a mining landscape where innovation is the fruit of cross-disciplinary collaboration.
The Technical Program will feature wide-ranging topics including an examination of the operational excellence culture, innovation present and past, safety corporate showcase, diversity and gender equity, environment and sustainability, geology and exploration, rock mechanics, business cases, and engineering challenges around global mining. With the CIM International portfolio growing strategically, the West Africa stream will be of interest to all in attendance, as well.
The Expo will be celebrating its 34nd anniversary. It will host nearly 450 exhibiting companies, featuring the latest in mining equipment, tools, technologies and services. The Expo is Canada’s mining marketplace.
Peppered throughout the three days will be a cornucopia of receptions, events and social programs, providing valuable networking opportunities and the chance to experience what makes Montreal one of North America’s most intriguing cities.
We look forward to seeing you in Montreal!
