Communicate magazine’s sector-leading conference for communications professionals working in extraction. 

This year's third annual conference took place 13 June 2013, at Glaziers Hall in central London.

Industry experts shared their knowledge, crisis management experience, lessons learned from managing reputation and preparing strategies for the future.

The extractions industry is most known for the disasters that have afflicted it over the years – from Exxon Valdez to Deepwater Horizon to the recent Marikana conflicts in South Africa. Oil, gas and mining companies are no stranger to crisis. But along with the struggles, comes successes. The industry has made massive steps forward in developing and embracing new technologies – particularly in the areas of deepwater drilling and shale gas extraction.

Despite these successes, the industry remains inextricably tied to politics and macroeconomics, and governments are particularly concerned with the environmental and economic reverberations of extractions. Oil, gas and mining companies are constantly threatened by the risk of crisis, pressured by sustainability objectives and responding to changes in the global political and economic situation. For those reasons, reputation is of the utmost importance in the sector.
