Welcome to Toronto

Welcome to Toronto!

"Global Leadership – the Courage to Change" is the theme to be explored at the CIM Convention 2013 in Toronto. It will set the direction and tone of the presentations, dialogues and face-to-face exchanges over the course of the conference. The mining industry continues to face the challenges of managing tremendous growth against the backdrop of a shifting global political landscape and an unpredictable super-cycle. This signature event of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) promises to be the mining event of the year.

The Plenary Session will open the convention with powerful speakers. These influential industry executives have confirmed their participation: Stan Bharti, Executive Chairman, Forbes & Manhattan, Inc., Egizio Bianchini, BMO Capitals Market; Chris Lewicky, Planetary Resources; Richard A. Ross, Schulich School of Business; and Zoë Yujnovich, Iron Ore Company of Canada (IOC).

The technical program will feature six streams: Operations & Maintenance Best Practices; Leadership in Investment & Management; Social & Environmental Responsibility; Global Geological Puzzle; New Frontiers/Open Innovations; and Planetary and Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium. CIM’s societies are hard at work preparing to deliver the most current research their sectors have to offer.

The CIM Exhibition, sold out again this year, is the opportunity to make the connections necessary to drive design, purchasing and operational decisions. With over 400 exhibiting companies, it is a must-attend show for every major player in the mining sector.

If you are from Toronto or are in the area early, please join us at the Mining For Society (M4S) public educational and interactive show on mining, minerals, metals and materials. It runs from May 2 to May 4 and everyone is welcome to explore the pavilions and learn a little more about the life cycle of mining and its role in our everyday lives.

The 2013 Toronto CIM Convention will build on the successes of previous years. A steady growth in the numbers of delegates, exhibitors, and energy continues to attract the most relevant speakers and dynamic presentations as the industry comes together to focus on exploring operational and managerial excellence across all facets of mining.

Please join us for the 2013 Toronto CIM Convention – where the business of mining happens!
