2018 Promoting Innovative Solutions Program

The region's engineering and heavy industrial sector is seen as being the hub for innovative, cost effective, production efficient solutions that address the mining industry needs.

This program will provide businesses in the region’s engineering and heavy industrial sector with an opportunity to improve their business development skills (in particular their value proposition, presentation and pitching skills) before participating in an expo like event that will connect them with mine maintenance personnel.  In order to participate in the program businesses must have a unique cost saving or production efficient service or product to introduce to mine maintenance staff.
The objectives of this program are:  
•    Provide participants with the ability to effectively introduce their cost effectiveness and/or production efficiency ideas direct to mining maintenance staff.
•    Promote innovative work being done in the region and how members can provide solutions to clients that are cost effective or add to production efficiency.
•    Connect local businesses with multiple mine maintenance staff at one event.
•    Capture the information in regards to the outstanding work that is being done in the region in both written and visual formats to promote the engineering services sector to a wider market/new industries.

A series of workshops will be held in Mackay and Moranbah early in 2018 to refine the 'selling' skills of the supplier to assist them engage with the buyer more effectively at the expo.   

RIN will provide each business with one allocated space at the Expo (includes table, signage and chairs) and also work with participants to produce a profile of each business product to include in a expo directory.

It is anticipated that businesses that participate in the program will generate new work opportunities through the introduction of their offering to a number of different mine sites at one event, but also provide them with improved business development skills and marketing material for future use in their business.
