Port Moresby readies for PNG Expo

The Papua New Guinea Industrial and Mining Resources Exhibition and Conference (PNG Expo) will be a top event for the industry in early July. Will you be heading to Port Moresby?

In Papua New Guinea (PNG), the mining industry is a strong driver of economic growth. Since the 1900s, the industry has evolved to see vast quantities of gold, copper, silver, nickel, oil, and gas extracted and exported. It’s thought to have significant reserves of minerals, including cobalt. Extractive activities represent about 25 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) in Papua New Guinea.

As such, this is a vital industry for the country’s economy. There is enormous potential for companies to work together to benefit the population.

That’s why the PNG Expo is back. It is the premier event that brings together all industrial, mining, and resource sectors into one location to create a marketplace where business is done. While under new ownership with Prime Creative Media, the PNG Expo will maintain its commitment to invest in the event’s professionalism, infrastructure, and marketing at both a local and international level.

What to expect

In 2024, the two-day exhibition will feature over 100 displays of equipment and stands. The conference will showcase mining and resource sector experts, presenting challenges and opportunities for the local industry.

The presentations will also delve into the challenges and opportunities for the local industry. The keynote speakers will look at a vast array of topics that touch on the pressing issues impacting the PNG mining industry and the broader PNG economy.

A networking reception and official dinner will allow attendees to meet potential customers and partners in a relaxed setting.

“We have received positive feedback from the industry so far,” show director Lauren Chartres said. “We’re excited to see this event moving to a new phase of development and bringing additional value to the PNG resources sector.”

Leaders in productivity solutions will be exhibiting at the event to present their innovative technology, showcasing how it benefits the PNG mining industry. The cutting-edge solutions will allow potential buyers to improve their productivity and yields.

“We know that productivity and efficiency are huge drivers of success in PNG,” Chartres said.  “We’re excited to see how exhibitors address these issues with their solutions at the event in July.”

With the topics of sustainability and safety, the conference will aim to pave the way for companies striving for positive change. There will be numerous prospects for attendees to make various constructive transformations for their businesses and communities of interest.
