Mining Indaba new dates announced: 7-10 February 2022

We are sorry to announce the 2021 edition of Investing in African Mining Indaba has been cancelled due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by COVID-19.

The event will now take place on 7-10 February 2022. However, we are delighted to announce Mining Indaba Virtual will be taking place 2-3 February 2021.

For the last 27 years, Investing in African Mining Indaba has been about bringing the global mining community together and delivering world-class, face-to-face events. In our commitment and passion for the industry, we really hoped to make Mining Indaba happen early next year. Unfortunately, after discussions with our partners in South Africa and key stakeholders in the mining industry, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 edition of Mining Indaba. The event will now take place on 7-10 February 2022.

We remain confident that we could have delivered our event in February safely. However, ongoing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and international travel restrictions means that we can no longer be certain of delivering the event to the highest standard to which our audience is accustomed. With the current restrictions for hosting events in South Africa preventing larger gatherings we believe the impact on our attendee ROI and ROTI would have been significant and was therefore an important contributing factor to the decision to cancel.

In 2022, Investing in African Mining Indaba will be held in Cape Town on 7-10 February and will take place in accordance with the latest health & safety and government guidance.

In the meantime, we are delighted to announce the launch of Investing in African Mining Indaba Virtual, which will take place 2-3 February 2021. We recognise the role that Mining Indaba plays in connecting the global mining community and its significance in shaping the industry for the year ahead. This strategic event will feature free high-level content streamed online, including pioneering insights from the industry’s heavyweights, multi-stakeholder strategic conversations, keynote addresses and more. Register your interest here.

For now, we would like to thank all those who have supported us in the last 27 years, we can’t wait to see you! We will keep you in the loop every step of the way, but should you have any questions in the meantime, visit our FAQs. Alternatively, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
