This was our first event in the coal industry that we’ve attended and it proved to be an enjoyable way to meet new people, share ideas and experience the exhibition in a historic hotel. It was also an excellent event to learn from industry experts with various disciplines.
The CHS Conference was held in the beautiful St. Louis Union Station Hotel– you’ll see from the photos we are posting that it was the perfect place for a coal conference.
The station opened on September 1, 1894, and was owned by the Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis. At its height, the station combined the St. Louis passenger services of 22 railroads, the most of any single terminal in the world. At its opening, it was the world’s largest and busiest railroad station. In the 1940s, it handled 100,000 passengers a day. The famous photograph of Harry S. Truman holding aloft the erroneous Chicago Tribune headline, “Dewey Defeats Truman,” was shot at the station as Truman headed back to Washington, DC from Independence, Missouri after the 1948 Presidential election.
Our presentation “5000 Stockpile Measurements from the Field to the CFO in 24 Hours– with an iPhone?” was held the last day of the event, on Wednesday October 22. It covered 3D computer generation, with current and future cloud-based computing capabilities applicable to the mining industry. Measuring 5000 stockpiles and receiving accurate measurements within 24 hours is based in reality, and where the future and business is headed. Our demo included examples in the mining industry.
