New products and services for both above-ground mining applications and underground mining applications from around the world will be available at the Canadian Mining and Industrial Expo 2013, said the event's organizers.
The Expo will take place April 24-25 at the Garson Arena and Community Centre on Falconbridge Road. The trade show is open to anyone in the mining field or a related field, with exhibitors from throughout the world coming to Sudbury for this two-day event.
“This is a great opportunity for engineers, management, miners, plant foreman, maintenance supervisors, business owners, purchasing agents and others to meet and see the latest in mining products and services,” said Darren Ceccarelli, marketing director, DAC Marketing Ltd, the shows promoter. “The opportunity also exists to network and make lifelong relationships which will lead to prosperous times in economic upswings.
“The market is definitely on an upswing for the mining sector as there are many companies that are booking the show with high expectations on the local economy. Many projects that have been on hold for the past few years in the downturn are beginning to re-surface and spending is starting to take place with many mining companies.”
The show continues to grow and attract different companies from around the world year after year. This year marks the 19th Expo, which has attracted interest from as far away as India, China, Turkey and many parts of Africa.
The Expo is very beneficial for Sudbury's economy as hundreds of thousands of dollars are spent in the city on hotel rooms, restaurants and attractions, Ceccarelli said.
There will also be many demonstrations and free giveaways taking place at the venue for this show.
