The two-day intensive forum with the key ministerial and industry participation, on-site trade show,  pre-forum master classes, networking drinks and the Awards Gala Dinner, MINEX Central Asia 2014 is not to be missed event.

The Forum and Trade Show will be held at Astana Radisson Hotel (Republic of Kazakhstan) on 1 – 2 April 2014. The pre-forum master classes will be organised on 31 March at the nearby Park Inn Hotel.
