Mining Vietnam 2016, the 3rd International Mining and Minerals Recovery Exhibition and Conference, promises to gather hundreds of local and international technology, equipment and service suppliers to support the mining area in Indochina.

The biennial event will be held from March 29-31 at the International Centre for Exhibition (ICE), Cultural Palace Complex, Hanoi, Vietnam. It is organised by Singapore Exhibition Services, a member of Allworld Alliance Services. Allworld has a series of events in Asia which also includes Mining Indonesia, Mining Mongolia and Mining Myanmar.

Mining Vietnam is supported by Vietnam's Ministry of Industry and Trade, and Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Vietnam National Coal and Mineral Industries Group (VINACOMIN) and industry players.

The event offers itself as an effective business bridge for international suppliers with latest technologies and equipment to reach and engage the local and regional industry.

In its previous edition, Mining Vietnam 2014 gathered 169 exhibitors from 30 countries and regions from all over the world. There were six international pavilions from Australia, China, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and the UK. The total of trade attendees reached 3581 from Vietnam and other countries.

Singapore Exhibition Services’, Vietnam representative office deputy chief BT Tee said, “From its launch in 2012, this event has effectively served the Vietnamese mining industry.”

He said it had attracted technology suppliers such as Bobcat, Feluwa Pumpen, Joy Global, JSC Mining Machines, Köppern Maschinenfabrik GmbH, Komatsu, Professional LLC, Rieckermann, Siemag Tecberg GmbH, Tru-Trac Rollers Ltd, Weir, RUD Ketten Rieger & Dietz GmbH.

The event had been graced by key buyers and mine operators in the region namely COALIMEX, Ha Giang Mineral Mechanics JSC, Khe Cham Coal, Nui Phao Mining, PETROVIETNAM, Thai Nguyen Iron and Steel (TISCO), Total Vietnam Limited, Viet Mineral Exploitation and Processing, and many subsidiaries from VINACOMIN.

BT Tee said organisers were expecting six international group pavilion representations in the show's third edition while there were also concurrent technical conferences organised by The ASIA Miner and MESLAB (Multi Engineering Services). These would both provide excellent opportunities for mining operators in Indochina looking to improve mine performance and efficiency, and for those looking for new technology and safety improvement aspects to deploy in their daily operations.
