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.

Since the inaugural conference in 2003, ADU has become the must attend event for those who already have projects in Africa; or those interested in doing business in Africa. A pillar of ADU’s success has been the continued strong support of African and Australian government representatives. This is because it builds capacity of government delegations and senior ranking officials looking to enhance their respective sectors through high level interactions with key players.

In addition to creating a melting pot for pro Africa-Australia relations, ADU forms the principal pillar of “Africa Week”, Australia’s week long 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.
