CSA Global will be exhibiting at this year’s PDAC Convention between 3-6 March 2019 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Canada.
The convention will be attended by senior members of the CSA Global Vancouver, Toronto and Dublin teams.
The four-day annual convention held in Toronto, Canada, has grown in size, stature and influence since it began in 1932 and today is the event of choice for the world’s mineral industry.
The PDAC Convention is a temperature gauge for the sector and is renowned for bringing the latest trends, technologies, knowledge and information to Toronto every year, and participation measures how hot or cold the investor climate might be in the year ahead.
To learn more on some of the exciting projects CSA Global has been working on, please see us at Booth 249.
