Book early for the Brisbane IMPC

Amanda, Jon and I are currently booking our flights and accommodation for this year’s major event, the XXVth International Mineral Processing Congress in Brisbane.

The IMPC is the “Olympic Games” of mineral processing, and an event not to be missed. This year’s IMPC coincides with the Brisbane Festival, and for three weeks, starting on September 4th, Brisbane will be in full festive swing as over 1.5 million people enjoy the festivities. The Riverfire on Saturday September 4th promises to be noisy and colourful and will unite hundreds of thousands of people in celebration with music and fireworks in Brisbane's city centre and reverberating out to suburban streets, parks and backyards. We watched the Riverfire display in 2008, at the end of Automated Mineralogy ’08 and it is truly awesome.

The large influx of people into Brisbane for the Festival does, however, mean that hotel rooms are soon booked and prices are higher than usual, so our advice is to reserve accommodation as soon as possible, and trawl the internet for cheap offers. The hotel prices offered on the IMPC website are high, and can easily be bettered with a little shopping around.
