DRC Mining Week 2020: postponed to 2021

Helmut Schgeiner, VDMA

DRC Mining Week 2020 was postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19.

After the successful start of the German Pavilion in the Democratic Republic of the Congo DRC, the German mining suppliers were very excited about the continuation of the DRC Mining Week 2020 in Lubumbashi, DRC. Unfortunately, DRC Mining Week 2020 - with its combination of conference and exhibition an ideal market place for mining suppliers in the Copper Belt region in the heart of Africa - is now falling victim to the corona virus.

The event, which was initially postponed from June 2020 to 7-9 October 2020, has now been postponed again to 2021.

The next DRC Mining Week will take place in Lubumbashi, DRC from June 15 to 17, 2021.

There will also be a German Pavilion at DRC Mining Week 2021. The organiser is again Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. Contact person there is Mr. Markus Liedtke, Phone: (+49 2 11) 45 60-77 05, Fax: (+49 2 11) 45 60-87 77 05.
