Welcome to CIM Connect 2024!
With excitement and anticipation, I invite you to the much-awaited annual gathering of the mining industry, now proudly known as CIM Connect 2024! This year promises to be another extraordinary event, following a record-breaking CIMTL 23 in Montréal, and we are thrilled to share some exciting updates with you.
As we embark on this new chapter, the rebranded CIM Connect truly embodies our mission – connecting members, potential members, students, and corporations. It’s about bringing people together to connect, exchange ideas, collaborate, innovate, and ultimately, evolve the industry.
Our new logo, a vibrant representation of this transformation, showcases our global reach, with minerals symbolizing the seven continents, minerals that are the essence of our industry, and the vibrant colors of Vancouver, our host city.
The conference theme, “Brand Canada: Our Critical Advantage,” highlights Canada’s unique role within the global minerals, metals and energy landscape. It underscores our commitment to developing valuable resources responsibly and showcasing leadership in the field. This theme will provide a platform for exploring the significance of Canada’s critical advantage in the world, emphasizing our strategic importance, and underscoring how we can leverage these advantages.
Prepare for three full days of immersive learning and knowledge exchange, complemented by professional development courses in the days leading up to the convention. Our expansive tradeshow will be buzzing with companies showcasing cutting-edge products and services, offering a unique opportunity for networking and discovery. This year’s event will also include the 14th International Symposium on Mining with Backfill adding greater scope and depth to the proceedings.
We look forward to welcoming you to the breathtaking city of Vancouver, where the Pacific meets the mountains, from May 12 to 15, 2024. Let’s connect, exchange invaluable insights, and pave the way for a brighter future for the mining industry.
See you in Vancouver!
