The Next NG Mining Australia summit ( NGM AU5) will be held in Perth, on the 21 st to the 23 rd of May 2013. There will be a range of Australia's biggest mining heavyweights joining the conversation, and a cutting edge programme in place to provide Next Generation solutions to next year's common pain points. The event, which is spread out over an intensive two-day programme, will comprise lively, peer-led panel discussions, working lunches, closed-door meetings, roundtable discussions and workshops to give delegates the optimal opportunity to network with a dynamic mix of solution providers, sponsors and business analysts.Nick Roberts, NG Oil and Gas APAC Summit Director for GDS International, the global events company behind the event, says: "The fourth Next Generation Mining summit combined high-level professionals and politicians with interactive workshops and other professional icebreakers to provide the perfect environment for new business relationships to flourish. This summit was the benchmark in the Australian Mining industry and the only premium event the country has to offer. I'm really looking forward to the upcoming summit in Perth, which promises to surpass this year's event, and, indeed, every other mining event in the region."
