4th Annual Africa Iron Ore Conference

3 - 4 June 2014 | Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel Sandton Johannesburg

IMM Events are pleased to announce the dates for our 4th annual Africa Iron Ore conference that will be held on the 3rd and 4th June 2014 at the Radisson Blu in Johannesburg.

Africa Iron Ore complements our successful iron ore portfolio which includes the Global Iron Ore & Steel event in Perth, the EU Iron Ore event in Berlin, London, Stockholm and Paris, and the Americas Iron Ore event in Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte.

The African iron ore market has seen an increasing interest in the past few years with several international mining companies and juniors actively exploring in the African continent’s untapped sources of iron ore; new deposits have been discovered and new production shipped to supply the demand coming from fast-growing economies. Africa’s role in the future of the global iron ore industry is becoming a reality, however not without challenges that the 4th Africa Iron Ore conference will discuss and address.
