Few opportunities could rival the World Mining Congress 2023’s ability to reach international mining and resource industry leaders. It is the perfect opportunity to demonstrate real leadership and presence on a world stage.


A unique opportunity to access world leaders, across the full spectrum of mining, in the one place and at the one time.

A rare opportunity to meet senior industry and innovation leaders in the world’s leading resource economies, WMC 2023 is the ideal platform.

WMC is one of the most established and longest running mining events in the world and is a recognised forum of international importance.

The first time WMC will be held in Australia, making it an excellent opportunity for Australian operators and companies seeking investment or offering services to the global mining sector alike.

WMC 2023 is an exceptional opportunity for international delegates to gain insights into Australia’s world class mining operations, R&D, METS and Universities.

Participation as a sponsor of WMC 2023 is the most cost-efficient way of reaching international investors, operators, regulators, researchers and suppliers.

WMC 2023 is being promoted internationally at leading resource and mining events and through major industry, government and academic channels globally. Sponsors will be featured in this promotion, providing extended international reach from the time of their engagement with WMC 2023, during the event and beyond.
