The Resources Sector remains the Key Pillar to the Australian economy with investments predicted to grow soundly over the remaining decade. Australia’s abundant mineral resources; advanced mining equipment and reputable technology and services sector have made Australia globally renowned as a Resources powerhouse. Highly developed infrastructure coupled with strong relations and close proximity to the robustly developing Asian markets; the world’s fastest growing region with the highest demands for commodities, has made Australia the ideal destination for establishing operations. With the industry also at a time of change, development forecasts for the future remain prosperous with an estimated $430 billion investment pipeline of new projects that are either planned or already at the implementation phase. Also, as the sector matures with major projects moving from construction into operations, it is predicated that the operating workforce will increase strongly through to 2018, with an additional 19,000 operational staff required. However is this final calm before the storm? Overshadowing challenges continue to haunt the resources sector. Changing market conditions, spiralling operational costs ‘VS’ falling commodity prices, skills shortages and a challenged safety performance have more and more companies forced to reassess and transform their operational strategies. This means the COO who plays the leading role in executing these strategies, is now placed to lead the way into the next phase of Australia’s Resources operations. The COO Leaders Resources Summit is Australia’s only tailored event held specifically for operational leaders to gather and interact as one over a range of important issues facing the industry. The current challenges and opportunities will be highlighted through visionary keynote presentations, round-table sessions, interactive workshops, panel discussions and think tank sessions delivered by your most esteemed peers and thought leaders within the resources community. Over the two day event, suppliers will also have the opportunity to meet and interact with these operational leaders through a series of pre-scheduled one on one meetings, which will take place in an intimate environment for a focussed discussion about the new drivers shaping the industry. Within the luxurious settings of the Sheraton Mirage Resort & Spa, Gold Coast this networking and lead generation event presents a unique opportunity to develop meaningful and valuable business relations.
