Growing METS Matters

Collaborative forums aimed at Mining Equipment, Technology and Services businesses to help boost industry insight, overcome local challenges, establish support networks and build innovation capacity.


At our Growing METS Matters Forum held in April 2017 in Wollongong, we asked participants what they saw as some of the biggest challenges to innovation in the NSW METS Sector, and how innovation can help grow a business.

In March and April of 2017, METS NSW along with its strategic partners Austmine, METS Ignited, Austrade, Hunternet and i3net held forums for METS organisations in the major regional NSW centres of Dubbo, Parkes, Muswellbrook and Wollongong. The objective of the forums was to identify opportunities for growth and collaboration within the METS sector.

The transition of the resources sector is demanding a change in business models, technology and methods of operation. These changes can be unsettling for business owners, with paths to profit being new and untested.

But as experts in their own business practice, participants of the Growing METS Matters Forum identified local strengths, as well as challenges to growth specific to their regions.
