CRU’s World Copper Conference 2022 was held virtually. The event took place during CESCO Week which was also celebrated virtually between April 12 and 14. 
We held a free pre-conference webinar for attendees on Thursday 1 April at 3.00pm London time. The pre-conference webinar was a way to get a sneak peak into CRU’s Risk Adjusted Decision Making workshop, which includes dynamic analysis of risk and value and is especially useful for assessing projects, expansions, and long term mine planning. The pre-conference webinar also gave attendess a chance to see a demonstration of the virtual platform, and ask any questions.  

CRU Events have developed a tried and trusted virtual platform and have successfully run a number of large-scale virtual conferences which offer real insightreal networkingreal business opportunities, and with no travel and accommodation costs - real value. Read what other professionals have to say about the networking opportunities and immersive experience at our other virtual conferences - click here .

Since the rapid onset of Corona virus early in 2020, the World Copper conference has been tracking the implications and sharing news of new developments in the market, through the Copper Matters webinar series, which are still available view here. This year’s agenda will convene a leading group of miners and smelters to continue this dialogue and to share news on the market outlook, company developments, ESG and new and exciting growth opportunities for the copper industry.

CESCO Week and the World Copper Conference provide some of the most important commercial and networking opportunities in the mining industry, attracting in excess of 2000 delegates. Both events are renowned for the calibre of delegates and attract CEO participants from the world’s most important miners and smelters.
