Commerce North West has received a positive response from exhibitors wishing to take part in this year's MineX Roadshow.
The Mount Isa chamber's two day exhibition is scheduled to be held at Buchanan Park from June 9-10 and showcase mining services, equipment, and industry guest speakers.
New Commerce North West president Emma Harman said industry businesses from all over Australia could exhibit at the event.
"MineX is a mining exhibition and forum to showcase everything the industry has to offer," Ms Harman said.
"Businesses have the opportunity to showcase and demonstrate their products with potential buyers, while attendees have the opportunity to network, meet the seller and obtain quotes in person."
Ms Harman said Commerce NW had received a positive response from exhibitors wishing to be a part of this year's event.
"We have large and smaller booths on offer. We have received a great response for the big booths which are targeted at the big exhibitors and businesses and we still have some small booths available targeted at the smaller businesses who are not part of a national chain or big corporation.
"We will also have guest speakers to talk about what is new and interesting within the industry, which may include innovations, best practices and technology. So we are expecting a good line-up for that."
Ms Harman said this year's event would commence with an invitational President's Cocktail Party on June 8.
"We will be inviting all sorts of dignitaries to that event, including the Queensland Premier, relevant ministers with portfolios in mining, resources, trade and small business, as well as mayors and CEOs of all the shires in the North West and mining bosses and managers from all the mines in the region.
"So we are hoping it will be a very good networking event for all of those people and to fly the flag for the North West Minerals Province and make it shine."
Following the 2021 MineX Roadshow, Commerce North West will re-model the exhibition from a biennial event to an annual event.
"We wanted to shift back to having an annual event to keep momentum. We felt like we were losing momentum by having it every second year," Ms Harman said.
"We felt like there was a need in the region for more engagement and a forum styled event with guest speakers and for people in the industry to come together."
