REIS 2013 Broken Hill - Carpentaria Exploration ASX:CAP


Published on

The 3rd annual Resources & Energy Investment Symposium (REIS) is on 19-22 May, once again held in the unique city of Broken Hill; Last year’s event exceeded the expectations of all that attended - including over 350 delegates, 12 keynote speakers and more than 30 resource companies presenting their investment opportunities.

A focus for this year’s symposium will be on the current economic climate including its challenges and opportunities, not only in the Australian resources industry, but Australia’s position in the international market.
