Premier mining trade show comes to NSW

Media release | 23 August 2017

The NSW Government is throwing its support behind the Asia Pacific mining community’s largest and most important trade show which is coming to Sydney.

The biennial Asia Pacific International Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) - at the Sydney Showground at Olympic Park from 29-31 August - will attract about 5,000 delegates from Australia and across Asia, Europe and the Americas.

The NSW Government, through the Department of Industry, is a supporting partner with Austrade for this significant three-day event that will feature about 350 exhibitors including about 78 businesses from Sydney, the Hunter, Central Coast, Illawarra, and Western and Southern NSW.

“AIMEX will cover a range of industries servicing the mining sector - advanced manufacturing, ICT, education, infrastructure and resources –providing a global stage to target NSW and Australian business, trade and investment opportunities,” said Department of Industry Mining Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) senior project officer Clare Sykes.

“The joint NSW and Austrade stand at AIMEX will promote the State's strengths in METS and host an international industry networking event on Tuesday, 29 August at 5.30pm.

“For our mining industry, AIMEX is one of the world’s key events to target exports as well as boost business by accessing the latest technologies, innovations, products, services and processes.”

The AIMEX program will feature a free Future of Mining Conference with 30 speakers and 17 sessions. There will also be the industry exhibition, a business program, various networking and demonstration events, and more.

Mining is a major contributor to the NSW economy providing about 27,000 direct jobs, 100,000 indirect jobs, and contributing some $17.4 billion as the state’s largest export industry representing 30 per cent of total exports.

“As well as AIMEX, the NSW Government is working to grow this key economic sector by strengthening business and research activity, accelerating innovation and championing NSW expertise through its support of METS NSW and the NSW Energy and Resources Knowledge Hub,” Ms Sykes said.
