The committee is most excited to be holding this premier event in South Australia for the first time in its long history, on the doorstep of some of the most complex and exciting metallurgical plants and operations.

The conference will be the event you know and love, the Organising Committee remains the same and it will be delivered using an alternative Professional Conference Organiser (PCO).
All previously announced Keynote speakers remain committed, along with the sponsors, exhibitors, and partners.

MetPlant 2023 has strong support from the South Australian Government, the Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide Convention Bureau (ACB) and local South Australian businesses which will provide an enhanced delegate and accompanying partner experience including additional opportunities for customisation of sponsor and exhibition facilities.

The theme of MetPlant 2023 will continue to be ‘World's Best Practice in Metallurgical Plant Design and Operating Strategies’, with a major underpinning theme of energy/carbon footprint reduction, process safety and ESG in autonomous operations, modularization of plants, social performance and designing for renewable energy.

CEEC Director and past Chair Joe Pease is one of the keynote speakers at the event and CEEC Director Greg Lane is a past keynote speaker also, along with many other CEEC sponsors, advocates, Patrons and stakeholders.

The 2022 CEEC Medals will also be presented at MetPlant 2023.

The dates and the venue are confirmed, and a new website and associated online speaker and registration portals will be established in the following weeks, along with the release of a preliminary program and confirmation of conference themes.
