The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) announced that its annual convention will be entirely virtual in 2021 for the first time in its 89-year history.
The decision comes in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, as the virtual event offers a safer and innovative solution for the industry to access the opportunities that are traditionally provided in-person during the convention in Toronto. The event will take place from March 8 to March 11, 2021.
‘We are excited to adapt the PDAC Convention by offering a fully virtual experience to participants for the first time,’ said PDAC Executive Director, Lisa McDonald. ‘The PDAC Convention plays a vital role in keeping the global mineral exploration and mining community connected, and that is more important than ever as our members, exhibitors, sponsors, attendees and partners overcome challenges presented by the global health crisis.’
The virtual PDAC convention promises bigger audiences and more connections from all over the world, as well as various interactive presentations, demonstrations and more opportunities to communicate with businesses and colleagues.
Coring Magazine is proud to be amongst the media partners of PDAC 2021 and shall provide the traditional event coverage. Additionally, for the first time, Coring will feature a virtual booth for guests and partners.
