International Minerals Innovation Institute

IMII today announced that the 2021 edition of DEMOday will be rescheduled to April 25, 2022 and combined into DEMOday 2022.  The new date will maintain the association with the highly successful Saskatchewan Mining Supply Chain Forum which will be held on April 26th and 27th next year.

“After consultations with our minerals company members and our supply chain association member SIMSA, we’ve made the decision to combine this year’s and next year’s DEMOday into one,” says Al Shpyth, IMII’s Executive Director. “This will allow us to support a change in DEMOday’s format and invite our industry members to submit specific needs that could be met by the supply chain either through the development or demonstration of a new, innovative technology and to receive applications with solutions that could meet the needs of a specific company, a sector or the industry.”

Companies and organizations that submitted applications for DEMOday 2021 will be considered for DEMOday 2022 or moved directly into IMII’s project development process.

IMII will be posting updated information on DEMOday 2022’s application dates to its website by the end of November.
