About the conference

AusIMM’s New Leaders Conference will bring together university students and young professionals in the resources industry from all over Australia. This year the conference will be held in Brisbane on 28-29 September 2020, with the thought-provoking theme, “Building your career from the ground up”.

Mining graduates in today’s environment are constantly facing new and surprising challenges, which requires them to be innovative and develop original ideas to deal with contemporary issues. This conference aims to develop students and graduates’ mindsets to be better able to deal with complex developments, integrate and understand emerging technology, and to be able to effectively network with other students, graduates, and mining employees.

The event will feature two days of conference sessions, aimed at strengthening their professional foundations for future growth; an industry trade exhibition, showcasing the industries latest innovations and products/services; and a Networking Reception, offering a chance for attendees to strengthen and make new industry connections in a relaxed environment.
