RIU Sydney Resources Roundup next week shines the spotlight on Australia’s strong resources sector with more than 70 presentations from industry experts and the who’s who of the junior and mid-cap market.
Adding even more value will be the more than 70 displays in the exhibition area of the conference at Sydney’s Sofitel Sydney Wentworth from Tuesday, May 7, to Thursday, May 9.
Organised by Vertical Events, it will be the 16th RIU Sydney Resources Roundup and will attract brokers and investors from all over Australia.
Attendees will come to see and hear first-hand from the presenting and exhibiting companies what progress has been made and what their strategies will be for the next 12 months and beyond.
Vertical Events managing director Stewart McDonald said: “Following on from a very successful RIU Explorers Conference in Fremantle in February, we’re looking forward to holding our 16th RIU Sydney Resources Roundup.
“We started this event back in 2004 and in the last two years the participation interest has forced us to expand the program to two and half days.
“The action-packed conference program consists of a diversified range of resources companies and a number of highly regarded keynote presenters.
“Strong investment appetite”
“A significant contributor towards the popularity of this event is the strong investment appetite from the Sydney investor community.
“Attending Conference investors can range from broker, fund and institutional representatives to high net worth retail and sophisticated investors.
“Essentially the RIU Sydney Resources Roundup provides the ideal environment to bring together key decision managers from resources companies and investors.”
