With the coal industry facing some significant challenges in Canada and around the globe, many are wondering what the future holds for the industry?
To help answer some of those questions, the Coal Association of Canada will once again be holding its a Annual Conference at the Westin Bayshore Hotel Vancouver (September 16-18) to showcase and source market knowledge and insight into the future of coal in Canada.
Again this year, delegates from the broad spectrum of companies from Canada and around the world will gather in Vancouver to gain the latest information and perspectives about the Canadian and global coal industry from a variety of expert speakers and panel discussions.
“Over the course of the two days of sessions, participants will be treated to far-ranging and thought-provoking presentations and panel sessions on a wide variety of topics related to the global and Canadian metallurgical and thermal coal industry,” says CAC President Ann Marie Hann.
World-renowned coal expert and founder of the McCloskey Group, Gerard McCloskey, will once again be the Conference Moderator to lead and entertain delegates from the opening session on coal’s positioning in global energy markets, through in-depth presentations on what market analysts are saying about coal’s prospects.
The conference will also focus on production aspects with a number of international and Canadian coal producers and experts, and for the first time, the conference will have a Technical Program conference offering learning opportunities for personnel operating at a variety of levels in the industry.
Following CAC tradition, the Conference will also offer a number of social events, including a golf tournament, receptions and banquet, highlighted by the CAC Award of Distinction to an individual who has left an indelible mark on the Canadian coal industry.
