The 2019 Joburg Indaba will take place on 2nd & 3rd October 2019 at the Inanda Club in Johannesburg.

Now in its 7th year, the Joburg Indaba will take an honest, bold and no-holds-barred look at the issues facing the mining industry. It promises once again to meet the high expectations the industry has of it with its exceptional calibre of speakers, attendees and the quality of the discussions. Together with its interactive and informal atmosphere and the opportunity it affords to network with important industry players in an intimate environment, the 2019 Joburg Indaba will remain a stand-out event in this year’s mining calendar.

2019 is proving to be an eventful year once again both in South Africa and globally, and the Joburg Indaba will interrogate what the major political, economic and various industry developments mean for the mining sector.

The programme will be announced very shortly, so please follow The Joburg Indaba website for updates and be sure to avoid disappointment by booking early.

The Joburg Indaba is a gathering that draws mining companies, government, labour, investors, community spokespersons and other stakeholders who have found it an important platform to engage with one another on critical issues facing the industry.

Participants have agreed that the Joburg Indaba is a highly influential platform that has raised the bar with its straight talk, refreshing insights and collaborative and intimate atmosphere (numbers are strictly limited to 500).
