Chetwynd will host the 31st annual Minerals North Conference and trade show next week.
Minerals North is the annual gathering of northern BC communities and its minerals sector. It is a venue for establishing business contacts, for learning about current activity in mining and exploration in northern British Columbia and for healthy dialogue leading to responsible resource development.
The Minerals North Conference Association (MNCA) endeavours to have the annual event hosted across the Highway 16 region and in communities large and small. This will be a first time Chetwynd has hosted Minerals North. The combination of conference delegates and trade show participants can easily exceed 300 persons.
MNCA President Andrew Webber noted “the Association was impressed with Chetwynd’s event facilities, its hotel and motel capacity and its track record in delivering similar-sized events.”
For District of Chetwynd Economic Development Officer Ellen McAvany, “This is a great opportunity to work with the Minerals North Association, which has a proven record of success with this conference. We are pleased to host and bring opportunities to our area with this event. We look forward to the challenge and partnerships this will bring for our region.”
