About the event

The conference aims to give delegates a thorough understanding of which downstream and end-use trends will most affect business.

6 great reasons to attend:

  • DISCOVER how green technologies in energy, transportation and construction will change metals demand
  • DEFINE what these developments mean for battery metals
  • FIND OUT what ‘big data’ means for how materials are produced, transported, stocked, consumed and monitored
  • DETERMINE what the future of recycling and reuse means for primary demand
  • DISCUSS how to reduce the environmental footprint of metals and mining operations and become more resource efficient, from mine to market
  • NAVIGATE different regulatory speeds and mitigate competitiveness issues through capital investment, process innovation and portfolio optimisation
  • HEAR the outlook for over 30 commodities associated with the metal intensive green economy

Pace of Change

The pace of change is accelerating significantly and given the long lead times and high capital costs required to bring new mines and mills to market, it is imperative that the industry acts now, to make itself as attractive as possible to investors and to ensure adequate supply of the materials that are building the future.

The conference aims to give delegates a thorough understanding of which downstream and end-use trends will most affect business. In order to safeguard their competitive position, metals and mining companies must:

  • Reduce the environmental footprint of their operations, becoming more resource efficient from mine to market 
  • Improve recycling economics and facilitate reuse through innovative business models
  • Navigate different regulatory speeds and mitigate competitiveness issues, through capital investment, process innovation, and portfolio optimisation
  • Take the opportunity to be seen by governments and society as producing the cleanest products possible; securing licences to operate and the best talent; and longer-term, by marketing products which attract premiums
  • Understand which technological developments will impact mining and metals
