The long-awaited International Mine Rescue Conference IMRB-2021 has come to an end. The event took place on September 7-8 in an online format and was organized by the Queensland Mine Rescue Service (Australia).
No matter the virtual format of communication, these two days were very informative and fruitful. 23 speakers from 18 countries conducted 24 presentations and presented their innovations, new knowledge and technologies in the mining industry. Experts from all over the world, guided by the slogan of IMRB-2021 – “Solving problems. Sharing knowledge”, shared their experience and knowledge during mine rescue operations. Moreover, this slogan is applicable to the format of the event, the organizers of which, during the pandemic, managed to find a successful solution and a way to congregate experts from all over the world to exchange knowledge. Almost all the participants of the event agreed that the suggested format and the platform for holding the conference is the best solution, taking into account the current situation in the world. There was a great opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions with industry leaders, interact with event sponsors and a unique networking opportunity. For a total, 24 countries took part in IMRB-2021.
As a Gold Sponsor of the event, DEZEGA was happy to hear and see not only old partners, old friends and colleagues, but also new faces.
It’s not a secret for any of the conference participants that the communication of specialists with necessary qualifications, knowledge and experience plays a significant role in the process of improving the actions of mine rescuers. For this reason, professionals from around the world gathered on one online platform to develop mining and mine-rescue areas, as well as to gain new knowledge, present their achievements, exchange experience and establish new business contacts.
