The jubilee 25th World Mining Congress 2018 was held in Astana. The event gathered together more than 1200 participants from 50 countries, including representatives of mining companies, high-ranking officials and leading mining experts, as well as representatives of related industries from around the world.
This year the World Mining Congress was held in Kazakhstan. The choice of the venue for the industry's leading event was not accidental - the mining industry of this country is currently on the rise and in the future experts predict that the region expects a steady growth and digitization of mining enterprises.
"Digital transformation of the mining industry is still a fashionable phraseology, but each concrete enterprise can get results if it sets specific KPIs for improving the efficiency of processes and prioritize initiatives based on the company's goals," comments Dmitry Klebanov, business development director, VIST Group.
VIST Group is a leader in Russia and CIS countries in the development and implementation of digital solutions for the mining industry and metallurgy. Within the exhibition, the company's specialists presented innovative technologies and advanced solutions for automating and robotizing mining enterprises. The stand of VIST Group was the best at the exhibition and was awarded by the organizers of the event.
