"The inaugural conference was well attended and provided opportunities to meet investors, financiers, media and peers. It was interesting to see the lack of understanding of resources from the Singaporean investor community, but they also demonstrated a great desire to learn. I can see the conference and relationship between the Australian resources’ industry and Singaporean investors growing strongly over the coming years."

Well done to Stewart McDonald and his team. You’re doing a lot right when the Federal Minister for Resources and Northern Australia Madeleine King opens your conference. Very inspiring!

"Well done Stewart, Gloria, and your team. Another outstanding success - especially for an inaugural event. The best international investment we have ever had for a conference. Our booths were extremely busy - especially with family offices that we have never met."
