Exclusive event: GMG Leadership Summit | Oct 22 – Oct 23

The global mining industy’s strategy-setters will gather in Tucson for the 2019 edition of the GMG Leadership Summit. This exclusive think-tank event will be an opportunity to share challenges and opportunities shaping your operational plans and set strategies to enable the future of mining alongside other leaders in operations and technology. The event will feature strategic sessions, a World Café and guest speakers from inside and outside our industry. We will be looking beyond operational, geographical and industrial borders to spur innovation and implement change on a global scale.

The program is a deep dive into three burning platforms: interoperability, the workforce of the future and climate change. Together we will define industry needs, opportunities and roadblocks, and actions and commitments required to enable the future of mining.
