SUDBURY, Ont. — The third annual Beyond Digital Transformation conference (BDT2020) will be held on Feb. 5-6.

BDT2020 is co-hosted by PACE.global and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), with Redpath Mining as the conference’s Platinum sponsor.

The conference organizers say simultaneous livecast sessions will provide a new opportunity for students and professionals to engage in the important topics discussed at BDT2020. The conference will be livecast from Cambrian College’s eDome.

“In the past two years, BDT2020 has established itself as an important venue for the mining sector to meet and focus on the digital transformation of the industry,” said Roy Slack, CIM president and BDT2020 conference chair, in a prepared statement. “There is much synergy between this young and emerging conference and the broad goals of CIM. It’s Northern Ontario and Sudbury-centric, an area which has traditionally been and continues to be influential and a global leader in our industry.”
