Forum platforms

Sessions and events

Plenary and technical sessions provide platform for key note addresses, business and technical polemic presentations.

Round tables and panel discussions provide an opportunity for the organization of debates and exchange of views.

Master classes and workshops stimulate  professional development of mine specialists and provide platform for presentation of advanced technical and business solutions.

Business podiums organised alongside the Trade Exhibition provide platform for corporate and promotional presentations.

In addition to the business-focused events the Forum contributes to the promotion of best mining practices and highlighting the social standing of the mining industry. Regular events organised alongside the Forum are the annual amateur photography contest “Russia’s Mines and Miners” and the international competition “The Russian Mining Excellence Award”.

At the trade show, organised in the framework of the forum, Russian and International companies demonstrate advanced technologies and showcase mining investment projects.

Created in the framework of the Forum the “Russian mining blog” provides a new multimedia and multilingual platform.

Some organisations take advantage of the fact that the Russian mining elite representatives are gathered in Moscow and use this opportunity to hold onsite open or closed associated meetings.

Business lunches, cocktail receptions and gala dinner create favourable conditions for informal communication and networking.

Repeatedly the Forum held workshops and competitions for Mining Students.The Forum also is actively involved in supporting the child care of the Far East and the Baikal region, organizing charity auctions and donations.
