8-11 February 2016 WEConnect International in South Africa attended Mining Indaba, which has been dubbed the “world's largest mining investment event”. The annual event was held in Cape Town, South Africa.
The four-day event was attended by African and non-African Government delegations, mining executives, investors, analysts, and financiers from all over the world, as well as business leaders and regulators from more than 110 countries, service providers, consultants, insurance brokers, stakeholders, and representatives from over 2,300 international companies.
Prior to the event, Mining Indaba Managing Director Jonathan Moore stated that the core goal of the annual conference was to convene global and influential deal-makers and to provide a platform to channel billions of dollars in capitalising the African mining value chain. For WEConnect International in South Africa the conference provided an opportunity to grow awareness of the organisation and its work, meet potential new corporate members, and actualise its vision of helping women-owned businesses succeed in global value chains, in this case, in mining markets specifically.
