Olympic Park, Sydney, Australia
AIMEX is the largest Australian mining exhibition, held every 2 years in Sydney, the capital of New South Wales. The city is one of the most beautiful in the world, with a natural harbour and many stunning beaches accessible to visitors. The show will host 700 exhibitors of which 200 will be from overseas, with major mining countries all hosting pavilions. The attendance is expected to reach 20,000 visitors from across Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
AIMEX consistently attracts a large high quality audience. The top five visitor categories are engineers, senior managers, plant / operation managers, foremen and maintenance. The visitor audience represents both underground and open pit mines, with a strong influence from the regional Hunter Valley coal operations. The Australian mining industry tends to buy local, and as such, companies who are interested in this market are advised to select a distributor or open a branch office.
The show organizers arrange a ‘Meet the Buyer’ program wherein purchasers can select exhibitors to meet them in private offices. They also present theme days – Women in Mining and Recruitment and Training.
The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service provides a market briefing and a reception for Canadian exhibitors and select invited Australians.
