Austmine 2021 Receives Business Events Grant Program Funding
Austmine is pleased to announce that the Austmine 2021: Harnessing Intelligence Conference & Exhibition, 25 – 27 May 2021, Perth has been selected as an Approved Business Event within the Federal Government’s Business Events Program.
The Business Events Grant Program provides delegates, including buyers and sellers, with financial support to attend and participate at exhibitions, conferences, and conventions. The initiative is aimed at instilling confidence back into the business events sector and encouraging businesses to return to the event forum.
This program is funded under the $1 billion Relief and Recovery Fund which is providing assistance to sectors, regions and communities disproportionately affected by the economic impacts of COVID-19.
The Business Events Grant Program announcement means that members participating in the Austmine 2021 Conference & Exhibition may be eligible to have up to 50% of the costs of attending, exhibiting or sponsoring the event covered by grant funding (note conditions apply).
This will help the Australian Mining Equipment, Technology & Services (METS) sector connect with the key decision-makers and brightest minds in the world of mining innovation, at a conference which will be one of the first opportunities for our industry to come together under one roof.
After a prolonged period of online operations and decreased opportunities to network, Austmine 2021 will serve as the go-to event to hear what’s next in mining innovation from our esteemed speakers and connect with like-minded individuals to drive further value for your business, the METS sector and the mining industry.
