“This year, we are excited to really push the conference to the next level in attendance, engagement, and technology adoption through the reach of the Orion Network and partnership with CIM,” said PACE.global CEO Neha Singh in a press release.
“I am grateful for the leadership and guidance from our conference chair, CIM president Roy Slack, who suggested engaging mining and technology schools in the program as well.”

Insitutions interested in participating as a livecast location are encouraged to visit BDT 2020 online. Registration to attend the conference at the eDome is now open and tickets are limited.
