Looking forward to ConMin West Africa 2017


newpicConMin West Africa will be happening on 13-15 June and will not disappoint with more than 2,000 visitors expected over the three-day event at the International Conference Centre in Abuja, Nigeria

The exhibition will provide an opportunity for participants with various networking sessions and opportunities for stakeholders to engage with relevant counterparts.

On 14 June, the Federation of Construction Industry (FOCI) will be hosting a construction conference around the theme of Sustainability of the Construction Industry in Nigeria.

These workshop/seminar sessions are free of charge and open to all visitors. Sessions will include financing projects, skilled manpower and environmental sustainability and be led by key members and experts of the federation.

Across the three days, visitors can expect to hear technical sessions and be able to attend workshops held by representatives from Dangote Industries, Soetec Engineering, Total, CAT Nigeria and Boustani Nigeria.

Running in conjunction is the National Mining Summit, which will unite prominent figures from Africa's mining and infrastructure sector including investors, mining companies, geologists and other stakeholders from around the world to learn and network, all toward the single goal of advancing mining not just in Nigeria but across the West African region.

The summit, which is sponsored by Dangote Cement, Total Nigeria, Africa Finance Corporation and Stanbic Bank, will be opened by the Nigerian Vice President, HE Prof Yemi Osinbajo and is the first event of its kind ever held on this scale in West Africa.
