Immersive Technologies has recently made available to the mining industry ‘Experience Centres’ through its five largest offices world-wide, with the primary purpose being to demonstrate workforce optimisation solutions, while sharing knowledge and best practices with mining industry professionals. The Experience Centres are designed to offer real business value, market leading insights and inspiration for all mining executives seeking to improve the performance of their operator workforce.
The centres provide an understanding of the latest technology and implementation of best practices and an opportunity to meet mining workforce development experts. In the first inaugural visit to the Experience Centre in Perth, Western Australia, Immersive Technologies hosted more than 35 young professionals and university students as part of the recent Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) New Leaders Conference.
The AusIMM ‘New Leaders’ conference series is aimed at strengthening professional foundations for future growth, along with showcasing the industry’s latest innovations, products and services. By providing conference delegates access to the Perth Experience Centre, Immersive Technologies says it helped inspire the next generation of industry leaders, exposing them to the latest simulation technology, and provided an understanding of key mining workforce challenges and business solutions for both the current and future mining workforce.
AusIMM CEO Stephen Durkin said that AusIMM has a deep commitment to supporting the future resources workforce. “Conferences such as New Leaders’ provide valuable opportunities for the next generation to connect with industry and gain first-hand experience of the technology that is shaping the future of our sector,” Durkin said.
