Phosphate Conference


Since 1985, the Florida Industrial and Phosphate Research Institute (FIPR Institute) has been instrumental in the development, production and sponsoring of the Annual Regional Phosphate Conference. This conference, held in mid-October, has, through twenty-eight years, provided the Florida phosphate industry, regulators, consultants, related-industries and researchers a professional platform for common dialogue. In 2013, following a steadily increasing trend, conference attendance swelled to over 600, with over 80 exhibitors participating. In post-2013 conference discussions, the Florida Section of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration (SME), which has become the controlling member of the five conference-sponsoring entities, expressed a desire to raise recognition of their core sponsorship and redirect the conference focus to more of a general mining conference, covering all of the mining types performed in the southeastern US. In so doing, SME will also assume the supporting role FIPR previously contributed. The FIPR Institute wishes the Florida Section of SME well in their new vision for the conference.
