Event organiser Reed Mining Events inked the partnership earlier this year for the biennial event, a relationship director Paul Baker described as critical.
“Reed Mining Events is proud to have the NSW Minerals Council as a strategic partner for M&E NSW 2014,” he said.
“It is crucial that a business-to-business industry event like M&E NSW is supported by industry groups, who share a common objective of facilitating and fostering a positive future for the mining industry in NSW.
“As the transition to the production phase continues it is critical for the industry to procure operational solutions that enhance their minesites’ performance.
“M&E NSW is a solutions sourcing, knowledge-sharing and networking opportunity that is specifically targeted at arming the NSW mining sector with the tools to enhance operational efficiency and productivity.”
NSW Minerals Council CEO Stephen Galilee said M&E NSW was an important event for the state’s mining industry.
“The NSW mining industry is a strategic asset and major contributor to the state and nation’s economy,” he said.
“M&E NSW provides the sector with a fantastic opportunity to conduct face-to-face business in the administrative capital of the NSW mining sector, in Newcastle.
“NSW mining is strengthened by industry events that focus on providing the sector with the tools to be successful.”
M&E NSW will be held at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on October 8-10.
