EXPO Features

With over 400+ exhibitors, networking opportunities, recruitment drives, and even a wellness lounge, the CIM Expo is where the mining community goes for inspiration. Check out the latest innovations, technologies, supplies and solutions, and more.
Lunch at the EXPO

Exhibitors and Delegates rub elbows and talk innovation, technology and business solutions between technical sessions. Buffet lunch included with delegate registration while exhibitors can buy tickets at registration or grab a bite and refreshments at the cash concessions.

Charging Stations & Linked In Corner

Charge your phone while our social media expert helps you optimize your LinkedIn profile on the spot.


Exhibitors who are hiring want you to know it! A floor decal in front of their booth, a table-top sign in their space and a special treatment of their listing in the printed program means you can drop off your resume.

Daily Cocktail Reception

After a long day of exchanging knowledge, both in the technical rooms and on the trade show floor, convention participants gather to share and laugh over refreshments before closing. A drink ticket is included with delegate registration and exhibitors and visitors can purchase consumptions directly at in-room bars.

Hosted Lounges

Some organizations have a lot to say and want to hear from you. Instead of a trade booth, they will invite you to take a break, have a seat and chat one-on-one.

Wellness Lounge

The gift of natural resources will be featured in this relaxing space where herbal tea and 10-minute chair massages will be offered. Take a break at booth 1111, close your eyes and enjoy a moment of calmness.

Publications Bins

Pick up your copies of various industry publications at the entrance of the EXPO. CIM sister and partner organizations deliver some of the industry latest news in print.

Meeting Pods

CIM Corporate Members, Sponsors and Exhibitors may use private meeting pods to conduct interviews or close that deal away from the traffic and noise. 30 minute slots. First-come, first-served. 

Silent Auction

The CIM Foundation displays unique and exclusive items for the highest bidder to take home. This auction, which takes place at the EXPO, is moved to the CIM Caterpillar Awards Gala foyer to raise funds for the CIM Mineral Literacy and Education Programs.
