PDAC Convention in full swing… online
The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada’s (PDAC) 2021 Convention — the world’s premier mineral exploration and mining event — marks its 89th anniversary with a virtual convention this week.
“The PDAC Convention is a must attend event for the world’s mineral exploration and mining industry,” says PDAC President Felix Lee who is attending his 34th consecutive convention. “I’m excited to showcase our industry in this new, virtual environment.”
The event, which kicked off on International Women’s Day, highlights the importance of equity, diversity and inclusion in the industry. While there is work to be done, important progress is being made. Diversity and inclusion are key priorities for PDAC and featured throughout the programming at the annual PDAC Convention.
In 2021, all attendees will have access to a customized virtual platform to navigate through the various exhibit halls, enjoy sessions covering the industry’s trending topics, use our matchmaking tool and network with colleagues. Educational sessions and new content will be accessible post-convention for three months.
“The PDAC Convention helps the industry stay connected, which is more important than ever before. We’ve always been unmatched in our ability to connect attendees to the broader international mining and exploration community and keep them informed of the latest industry news, trends, and developments through our extensive programming. We’re excited to continue this iconic and seminal industry event virtually.” says Lee.
