As you know, IMARC is Australia’s largest mining event, attracting widespread media and community attention.
It also attracts some groups in the community who take the opportunity to express their views on our industry through public gatherings and protest activity.
We respect the right of people to express their views peacefully and respectfully and we welcome open and transparent debate about the future of our industry.
But we need to recognise and plan for the fact that there may be a level of community activity around the Darling Harbour precinct that seeks to disrupt or otherwise draw attention to the event.
We are working with the International Convention Centre, NSW Police, and a number of security agencies to ensure we provide a safe and peaceful environment and minimise disruption to your arrival at the event.
Appropriate security measures will be in place to ensure your arrival and event attendance is safe and secure.
Registered attendees should refer to their email for detailed arrival instructions within your registration packs. To ensure you are prepared and assist with an efficient entry to the event attendees should plan to arrive early, allowing at least 45 minutes to get through security and registration.
There are a number of steps you can take to minimise your exposure to protest action.
Please be alert, but not alarmed. Your safety and security is our number one priority, and we look forward to welcoming you to IMARC in Sydney.
