Cape Town, South Africa

2022, May 31 – June 2

The IMnI Annual Conference is a unique global platform for manganese leaders to meet, network and exchange on the development of manganese industry. Hosted by the International Manganese Institute, the conference moves around the world and always includes technical visits to mines and/or plants. The IMnI conference is open to IMnI Members and relevant stakeholders.

After the success of the 2019 edition in Vienna, where 200+ delegates of the manganese community networked and learned about the latest trends of the industry, Cape Town has been chosen for the 2022 event. The conference will be structured around the theme “South Africa at crossroads: diversified Manganese producer,
or China’s miner?”.
