The mining industry’s flagship event, the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC), is coming back to Vancouver between January 20-21. With 20 years of event production experience, the conference has become the largest scale mining event of its kind.
 
VRIC aims to synthesize the mining ecosystem from executives to investors, by highlighting key trends that drive industry growth while giving attendees the opportunity to form meaningful connections in one of the investment realm’s most prominent sectors.
 
From a variety of interactive features to detailed overviews of emerging industry developments, VRIC is the ideal event for market enthusiasts, investors and those interested in commodities.
 


Key features to expect
 
VRIC offers the quintessential environment to interact with leaders in the mining space, with opportunities to meet advisors, CEOs, and prominent keynote speakers. VRIC is suitably touted as “months of productivity” over a two-day conference.
 
Highlighting the features of VRIC are the renowned speakers scheduled to appear. In particular, professional investor, Marin Katusa of Katusa Research, and Frank Holmes, CEO & CIO of U.S. Global Investors, will provide their top three picks of the year, relating to opportunities from the uranium, diamond and gold realms.
 
The diversity of speakers at VRIC highlights the extensive content that will emulate the conference’s wide-ranging influences and perspectives.
 
VRIC is aptly described as a “tiered conference,” where attendees can choose the path they take from a variety of options. One of the most unique aspects is “The Deal Room.” This feature was designed to help professional investors arrange meetings with top executives, as well as learn more about specific companies and emerging trends in the mining space.
 
For mining companies looking to share their message, VRIC offers a company exhibit component, where businesses can communicate with shareholders while meeting serious, dedicated prospective investors who are proactively seeking new opportunities.
 
Industry trends driving interest
 
The growth of electric vehicles as well as the symbiotic relationship between precious metals and global sociopolitical trends are some of the major industry trends expected to be covered at VRIC.
 
Electric Vehicles (EVs) have been a dominant talking point in recent years, sparking significant speculation surrounding demand increases for metals such as cobalt, copper, and lithium. Thought leader from the environmental space, Gianni Kovacevic, will be in attendance to share his ideas on this “100-year trend that is just getting started,” detailing how investors can prosper from the emerging global shift towards EVs.
 


On top of growing public interest in EVs, VRIC promises to offer significant subject matter on pure gold and precious metal plays, generating a holistic and comprehensive overview of the mining sector. Topics covered in relation to precious metals will include effects on different regions of the world, the recent success of precious metals, and how commodities play a factor in shaping supply/demand economics around the globe.
 
What to expect
 
Overall, VRIC 2019 will be one of the most thorough and wide-reaching mining conferences in the world. From interacting with top company executives to learning about emerging industry trends, it is the ideal conference for attendees from all investment backgrounds.
 
An array of featured speakers from across the mining space will gather to share their insight, while growing companies will also be present through the exhibitor function. Attendees can also arrange meetings with company executives in “The Deal Room” to learn more about different businesses and emerging trends.
 
With so many exciting features, attendees are essentially free to choose their own adventure, which is exactly what VRIC is aiming to accomplish.
