Dassault Systèmes was proud to have been the Plenary Theatre Sponsor of the 5th International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) from 29 October to 1 November 2018 in Melbourne, Victoria, the largest mining event in Australia where 6,160 delegates from over 90 countries  and over 30 government ministers came together to connect with Australian businesses and companies serving, investing and operating in the mining industry.

The mining industry is on a transformation path of innovation, adopting new concepts and best practices from other industries, such as manufacturing, to re-invent itself with the power of digital technologies applied across the mining value chain. IMARC 2018 presented the opportune time to introduce how Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables mining companies all over the world with the capabilities they need to innovate, continuously improve and sustain their businesses.

In this blog post, we bring highlights and key takeaways from Dassault Systèmes’ stakeholder engagement activities at IMARC 2018.
