About the Convention

The Mining Resources Convention has been labelled as Vertical Events’ premier flagship event!

With back-to-back presentations from key resource industry experts and participants, this two day event has previously secured delegations in excess of 1,500. Now incorporating the Australian Copper Conference, with 80+ booths set to fill the bustling exhibition area and ample networking opportunities at its attendants’ finger tips, this year’s event is sure to be another great success.

Running on Tuesday 29 & Wednesday 30 August, the Mining 2017 Resources Convention will be held at the Hilton Brisbane, Queensland.


Hilton Brisbane is located in the heart of the city on the vibrant Queen Street Mall, the city's CBD, and shopping and entertainment district.
