The exposition, which is held every four years, is sponsored by the U.S. National Mining Association (NMA). “With 815,000 square feet of exhibit space already booked and more than 1,600 exhibitors from more than 30 countries, MINExpo 2012 is already a record-breaking show,” said NMA’s President and CEO Hal Quinn. “The exhibit space alone is 36% more than the 2008 exhibition.”

This year’s program will offer attendees a wealth of information, from continuing education sessions and award ceremonies to specific products and service displays. CEOs of some of the world’s largest mining and mining equipment companies will highlight global market conditions.
