Question: Is IMARC going ahead in 2020?

In response to COVID-19, IMARC 2020 has been postponed to 26-28 October 2021.

To help the industry stay safe and stay connected, we have launched IMARC Online which will run from 24-27 November 2020 with Mines and Money Online Connect Co-located from 1 to 3 December 2020.

Question: How will IMARC Online work?

IMARC Online’s program will run over several days and global time zones to allow attendees from all over the world to engage. With an Interactive calendar of events, you will be able to curate your own personalised program of keynote presentations, workshops, networking and meetings based on your interests and log in at a time that works for you.

IMARC Online’s interactive program includes all the components you have come to expect from IMARC, including workshops, keynote presentations, networking, face to face meetings, and a dynamic virtual EXPO hall; showcasing the latest mining projects, technology and innovations, and international governments displaying the best their region has to offer.

In addition, we will welcome a series of co-located events including the popular IMARC METS Arena #LIVE, Mines and Money [email protected], and Mines and Money Online Connect.

Log in online to listen to presentations, panel discussions and pitch battles. Participate in lucrative face-to-face video meetings using the IMARC Connect meeting platform and attend casual and formal networking events from wherever you are in the world, without having to leave your home, or your desk.

Question: What measures are being taken to ensure online security?

Please note that whilst we have implemented best practice security measures for this global online event, we still require your cooperation in this regard.

We are asking all sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees to remain vigilant when replying to any emails received. Please ensure you only reply to verified & known email addresses.

The most common security threat would be receipt of an email from a fraudulent account, commonly referred to as a Phishing Email.

Examples of characteristics of a Phishing email include:

  • The email makes unrealistic threats or demands e.g.: reply now or your login will be cancelled
  • There is a catch e.g.: you may be asked to send money for expenses or fees
  • Poor spelling or grammar e.g.: replacing letters with numbers and symbols
  • A mismatched URL e.g.: ensure any hyperlinked addresses match the embedded link
  • You are asked for sensitive information e.g.: request for a password or credit card details

If you believe you have received a “Phishing” email or link, please follow this procedure:

  • Do not click any link or reply to the email in question
  • Take a screenshot of the email you have received
  • Send an email with the screenshot attached to our security team via [email protected]

Beware of Scammers

Please beware of people offering to sell any of our event delegate lists, either for Mines and Money or IMARC. We would like to reassure you that we do not sell our data to third parties and that this is a scam. We urge you not to give out credit card details or other information to anyone contacting you offering to sell details of attendees to our events.
