Regional Council of Lapland has organized the FEM Conferences since 1999. Nowadays FEM is one of the largest and most significant mineral industry events in Europe. FEM aims to promote and develop extracting industry regionally and globally. The biannual event includes world-class presentations by invited speakers, pre-conference short courses, a trade show, and excursions. FEM brings together exploration and mining industry experts and leaders worldwide. Since 2011 the number of delegates has been over 1000.
There is a separate bidding for FEM conference services each time it is organized. Rovaniemi-Lapland Congresses (RLC) has won the bidding for every FEM so far. RLC has handled among others conference registrations, hotel bookings, trade show bookings and all incoming payments. All the arrangements have been handled with high professionalism. The feedback from conference delegates has been very positive. Regional Council of Lapland recommends Rovaniemi-Lapland Congresses services for any event organizers.
