CIM Convention & Expo - Virtual
The Virtual Event
The 2021 CIM Convention moves to a virtual format to expand its reach and keep delegates safe
The Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) has decided to make its 2021 Convention and Expo a fully online event, to be held May 3-6, 2021.
The decision comes as a result of the continuing uncertainties due to the COVID-19 pandemic and CIM prioritizing the health and safety of its delegates.
The theme of the convention is “Resilient and Thriving -- Together in a Changing World.” Aligned with this theme, William Harvey, Honorary Conference Chair, says CIM is adapting to a changing reality while continuing to bring together professionals.
Delegates can expect an online venue that still features the cornerstones of CIM’s award-winning annual event: a top notch technical program featuring best practices from throughout the industry and the CIM Expo, a showcase for leading-edge equipment and solutions. The unique features of a virtual conference provide CIM the opportunity to reach a broad audience without the obstacles of travel restrictions, borders and the public health risk of large gatherings.
With keynote addresses, panels and technical content available live or on-demand, delegates will be able to catch all the proceedings. They can also make personalized agendas, seek out and connect with other individuals and businesses, engage through interactive polls and activities, and video chat with speakers and exhibitors. There will also be plenty of opportunities for networking -- a very important feature of the annual event.
