PDAC moves convention to June
Citing Ontario health restrictions, organizers of the PDAC 2022 said the show will be held in June instead of March.
The event is one of the largest annual get together for miners, which is held in early March in Toronto.
The PDAC 2022 Convention will take place in person at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from June 13-15 and online from June 28-29.
“The PDAC Convention provides an exciting meeting place for the world’s mineral exploration and mining industry to network, collaborate, learn, have fun and do business in an environment that is open and safe,” says Lisa McDonald, PDAC’s Executive Director. “We understand the importance of being able to offer the complete convention experience to attendees, and moving it from March to June is the best opportunity for us to do that.”
Capacity limits for indoor gatherings and large events were imposed by the Government of Ontario until at least January 26, with uncertainty as to the timing of their removal.
“We could not confidently continue with plans for an in person event in March with so much uncertainty around capacity limits, as it’s just not realistic for us or attendees, especially those travelling from abroad,” adds Ms. McDonald.
