The 2021 virtual CIM convention
May 3 @ 8:00 am - May 6 @ 5:00 pm
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 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.
The theme of the convention is “Resilient and Thriving — Together in a Changing World.”
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.
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.
