Biggest Conference of the Year for the Mining Industry
MINEXCHANGE 2023 SME Annual Conference & Expo and CMA 125th National Western Mining Conference is the only event dedicated to all disciplines of mining engineering. Held February 26-March 1, 2023 at the Colorado Convention Center, MINEXCHANGE is bringing an impressive lineup of speakers, panels, and technical sessions to more than 7,000 attendees from around the world.
Special events include:
- Awards – Recognizing leaders, innovators and icons
- Photo and video contest – A multimedia competition elevating mining
- SME Foundation Gala – Celebratory kickoff for the annual conference
- Young Leaders Programs – Making a difference in the future of the mining industry
- Student Activities – Networking and development opportunities for students
- PieLC – Young Leaders Social Fundraiser
PieLC is a first of its kind fundraising event hosted by the SME Young Leaders. Five SME Leaders selected a program they would like to raise money for. The person with the most money raised is safe and gets to throw pies in the faces of the other participants. Members can participate by making a donation in support of the SME Leader they would like to save from being PIE’d. “This fundraiser aims to raise awareness and support SME Foundation programs like Miners Give Back and the PhD Fellowship,” said Kathleen Tew, Chair of the Young Leaders Committee.
As the mining industry steps into the spotlight, supplying the minerals critical to powering a green economy, the focus on ESG, innovation and health & safety is more important than ever. Technical sessions include the new safety strategies, exciting advances in AI, and important initiatives for a sustainable future. At MINEXCHANGE, professional development moves beyond the expected to the vital insights todays professionals need to evolve with the future of mining.
