Bluefield Coal Show 2019
The Bluefield Coal Show is hosted every other year by the Greater Bluefield Chamber of Commerce. The show was revived by the Chamber in 1976 to grow the impact of the Chamber in the region and provide a trade show for coal-based businesses to exhibit their goods and services. Exhibitors and attendees from over 32 states and several international groups descend on the area creating an estimated three to four million dollar impact to the local economy in Tazewell and Mercer counties. More than 200 – 240 exhibitors participate in the Coal Show for Coal People and this will mark the 23rd biennial show in the coalfields.
The Media and Exhibitors’ Breakfast will be on the morning of the opening of the show, Tuesday 11 September, and attendees will hear about coal’s future from a coal industry leader.
The show encourages all those in the coal mining industry to attend and explore the latest mining innovations i.e. underground mining, safety, technology, aggregate, components and equipment.
