Africa Down Under Mining Conference

Africa Down Under Mining Conference (ADU) is held in Perth ever year and continues to be the leading forum for Australia-Africa business relations.  ADU has grown to become the largest Africa-focused mining event held outside the continent itself. Its importance continues to be reflected in the number of high-profile attendees we welcome year after year to Perth – Australia’s gateway to Africa, and Australia’s undisputed mining capital.


We are delighted to announce that the 22nd edition of Africa Down Under (ADU) will be held 4 – 6 September 2024 at the Pan Pacific, Perth.  ADU will proceed in its traditional format in Perth with live presentations, face-to-face meetings and networking.

ADU is the leading forum for Australian-African business and government relations and was first launched to raise awareness of Australia’s interests in African mining and energyThe three-day meeting has evolved to become the largest African-focused mining event held outside the continent itself which is reflected by the number of high-profile participants who attend each year.


Since our inaugural conference in 2003, ADU has showcased many success stories about Australian companies and organisations working across Africa. ADU is a must attend event for those with projects in Africa and for people and companies interested in investing or doing business in Africa.


In addition to creating a melting pot for pro Africa-Australia relations, ADU forms the principal pillar of “Africa Week”, Australia’s weeklong celebration of the strong and growing business, social and cultural ties between Australia and the entire African continent. “Africa Week” comprises a full week of satellite events on research, education, infrastructure, sustainable development, capacity building, energy, movies and the arts.

Join us on 4 – 6 September for the 22nd edition of ADU, when Perth once again asserts its position as a global capital for African mining, as well as the driving force of African-Australian relations.
