Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question about IMARC? See the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions from sponsors, exhibitors and attendees here.

All registered attendees will have received an email from IMARC advising of the rescheduling of IMARC 2022. This email requires your action so if you cannot locate this email please contact us as soon as possible.

If you are unable to make the new date, your registration can be transferred to someone else who may attend on your behalf.

Alternatively, the full amount paid can be transferred to any upcoming event organised by Beacon Events, including future IMARC events.

After two years of disruption, including the impact on international travel and major events, the response to this year’s event has been overwhelming.

Recently the opportunity to take the event to Sydney arose, enabling us to hold the event in one central location, and showcase bigger and better machinery and equipment than ever before. 

A new location is an opportunity to present a global event that connects with new audiences, new delegates and new topics that reflect the complex issues facing the sector, including ESG, climate change and the decarbonisation of the global economy.

ICC Sydney is an ideal location to present a global event that connects with new audiences, new delegates and new topics, right in the heart of Sydney’s Darling Harbour, with all activities taking place under the one roof across a huge 15,000m2 of space. 

The change of date was unavoidable given the other events already scheduled at ICC Sydney. We have sought to keep the dates as close to the scheduled dates as possible to minimise inconvenience for delegates, sponsors and speakers. 

If you are unable to make these new dates, please send us an email and your registration can be transferred to someone else who may be able to attend on your behalf, or the full amount paid can be transferred to any upcoming event organised by Beacon Events, including the next iteration of this event taking place in 2023.

With the industry returning to in-person events, and greater international travel freedoms, we are looking forward to welcoming industry back to the ICC Sydney for the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC).

As such, the decision has been made to remove the virtual element of the coming event scheduled for 2-4 November 2022.

All registered attendees should have received an email from IMARC Customer Service advising of this change.

Please contact connect@imarcglobal.com if you have not received this email so we can assist you with transferring to an in-person equivalent pass.

In the case of Client’s withdrawal, the full amount paid can be transferred to a future Event organised by Beacon. If the Event is cancelled by Beacon, then the Client will receive a full refund.

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 security@imarcglobal.com
