Aspermont managing director Alex Kent said:

"Future of Mining (FOM) was launched in 2016 as a content hub inside the Mining Journal and Mining Magazine media brands. As announced in May 2018, it then extended into a global live event series. Today, it takes the next step in its brand evolution.

The announcement in 2016 focused on Aspermont's development in technological agility and this launch today demonstrates those same characteristics.

The announcement in 2018, confirmed how quickly Aspermont rebounded in building a new events business after the sale of its Beacon Events joint venture.

Four years on from its launch, FOM is now a global brand in the bloodstream of our print, digital and social media; the centrepiece of the live events business reinvented again in a virtual event and exhibition context.COVID has affected many media and events businesses and Aspermont has not been immune, but the serial new product launches over the past six months underline Aspermont's qualities of resilience, innovation, go-to-market speed, and operational and technological agility.

Those foundations laid over the past five years have increasing prominence, as Aspermont moves into a sustained period of free cash flow generation, while innovation and execution speeds continue to improve. Similarly with Investor Outreach, the launch of which we announced last week, we expect FOM365 to be a $1 million product in its first year with high margin returns.

In the global mining sector, there may be larger physical exhibitions than those hosted by Aspermont but, in the digital world, no business provides a service comparable to our premium audience brands. As virtual events and exhibitions become a mainstay of the marketplace, that audience strength will become an increasingly significant differentiator for Aspermont."
