Geraldton Iron Ore Alliance sponsor this year's Mid West Economic and Resources Summit


Continuing their longstanding support of the Mid West Economic and Resources Summit, the Geraldton Iron Ore Alliance (GIOA) have confirmed their partnership for the 2014 event, Blueprints for a Brighter Future.

The annual Summit is being hosted for the fifth time as an initiative of the Mid West Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MWCCI). The region’s vital conference and cocktail function will provide industry professionals with progressive discussions and authoritative speakers addressing current issues on the economic outlook, and the industries, that drive the Mid West region.

Featuring high calibre speakers from the financial, resources and government sectors coupled with essential networking opportunities the event is expected to attract up to 300 delegates.

In addition to the guest speakers featured in each session, there will also be a number of highly informative panel discussions throughout the event, giving delegates the opportunity to observe a variety of viewpoints from industry experts.

MWCCI president Mr Trevor Lake says this event gives local business people exclusive opportunities to engage with, and take advantage of, future opportunities.

“This year’s Summit theme of Blueprints for a Brighter Future focusses on the principles of resilience, sustainability, diversification, conservation, innovation, competitiveness and development of sustainable communities”.

“We are delighted that the Geraldton Iron Ore Alliance have confirmed their ongoing partnership with our business community’s premier event.”

In addition to the GIOA, there are a number of organisations coming on board as sponsors of the Summit including the Mid West Development Commission, City of Greater Geraldton and the Department of Agriculture and Food with a limited number of sponsorship opportunities still available.

The sponsorship prospectus is available to download from the event website at

Blueprints for a Brighter Future will be held on the 23rd September at the Queens Park Theatre, Geraldton.
