IMPC Registration

Amanda and I arrived in Brisbane early yesterday morning after a 23 hour journey from Heathrow via Singapore. We caught up with Alex Jankovic of Metso in Singapore, and there were a few familiar faces at our hotel, the Ibis. The IMPC coincides with the Brisbane Festival, so hotel and restaurant prices are higher than normal, particularly last night, when the spectacular firework display, the Riverfire, was held, centred on Story Bridge. We met up with Jon, and Kathryn Hadler, who had flown in via Hong Kong, and Stephen Neethling of Imperial College, and joined the crowds to view this by the Eagle Street Pier.

Conference registration began this afternoon and was very smoothly operated by the AusIMM staff. The exhibitors also set up in the afternoon, and a few of the 1000+ delegates got together for complimentary drinks in the registration area. There is a definite buzz about this IMPC so we are looking forward to the next few days and there will be photos and news on the blog each day.
