We are pleased to announce that our annual PDAC Convention—the world’s premier mineral exploration and mining event—will be entirely virtual in 2021 for the first time in its 89-year history.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect travel and major gatherings, we recognize that staying connected is more important than ever for members, exhibitors, sponsors, attendees and numerous partners. The decision to move forward with a virtual event offers a safe and innovative solution for the industry to access our outstanding programming, investment and networking opportunities.
