World’s Biggest Mining Equipment Exhibition Draws Near

MINExpo INTERNATIONAL 2012, the world’s biggest mining equipment exhibition, will be held from September 24-26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The show will provide a first-hand look at the newest technologies in mining equipment and services

The event, sponsored by the National Mining Association (NMA), is held every four years and this one will be the largest mining exhibition ever.

“With 815,000 square feet of exhibit space already booked and more than 1600 exhibitors from more than 30 countries, MINExpo 2012 is already a record-breaking show,” said NMA’s President and CEO Hal Quinn. “The exhibit space alone is 36 percent more than the record-setting 2008 exhibition.”

This year’s program will offer attendees a wealth of information, from continuing education sessions and award ceremonies to specific products and service displays. CEOs of some of the world’s largest mining and mining equipment companies will highlight global market conditions.

On September 25, the Sentinels of Safety awards will be presented to U.S. mining operations with outstanding safety records. The following day, officials from the U.S. Department of the Interior will confer national awards for outstanding environmental achievement in U.S. mining.
