The ‘Pitchfield’

ZIMEC is coming back in 2018 with a bang! Focussing on the main concept of connecting companies to investors, we are organising the ‘Game of Mines’. We are providing a podium for interested companies to compete and pitch their projects or business ideas to a panel of investors who would judge and provide them with feedback.

The winner will be awarded and it will be an ideal opportunity to come into the limelight of industry elites, investors and gain deep insight into the market from experts.

Business Matchmaking

Networking is one of the key facets of ZIMEC, thereby, providing an invaluable platform for maximising networking opportunities throughout the event. The event’s new Business Matchmaking concept is to make these business interactions more targeted and decisive so that you meet your objectives! 

  • Organise meetings with the right connections. Target participants in similar industries, related interests and prospective opportunities.
  • Schedule your own personal meetings with other attendees.
  • Arrange your own high-value onsite meetings in one place leading more deals and business prospects.
  • The digital platform enables you to get in touch with your targeted audience pre-event through emails so you can start developing a relationship

Once registered, delegates will be able to access the matchmaking platform.

Youth Entrepreneur Competition

A new addition to ZIMEC 2018. We believe that the youth are the front runners for the success and future expansion of any economy. Thus, as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility Programme, we are encouraging university students and budding entrepreneurs to submit innovative ideas and projects with a societal impact towards a sustainable extractive sector in Zambia. ZIMEC will provide them with a platform to display their fresh ideas to the industry experts.
