The Canadian Diamond Drilling Association’s Convention and AGM for this year focuses on promoting safety and standards. This year we will be offering our members the chance to put-up a tradeshow booth in our technical sessions room; affording each participant the opportunity to deliver a 5 minute sales pitch to allow participants to highlight the unique features and benefits of their products and services.

In addition to the tradeshow booths, the conference will also feature the expertise of our Keynote Speaker, Jeff Butler. Technical Sessions & Workshops will ensure attendees will have a comprehensive learning experience and ample networking opportunities.

With over 100 participants expected, including Diamond Drilling and exploration contractors, suppliers, manufacturers, associates and training partners, this event fosters the ideal environment for fostering connections, knowledge exchange, and furthering the goals of the members of the Canadian Diamond Drilling Association.
