MMTA International Minor Metals Conference 2024
April 17 - April 19
The MMTA’s International Minor Metals Conference 2024 will be held on 17th-19th April 2024 at the Pan Pacific Hotel, Singapore.
We are delighted to bring the MMTA’s main conference to Asia following the successful two smaller regional minor metals events that the MMTA held in Hong Kong in 2018 and 2019.
Presentations will focus on the key minor metal sectors including cobalt, rhenium, molybdenum, tantalum, indium, germanium, gallium, tungsten, chromium, magnesium, lithium, antimony and other specialty alloys.
The 2024 conference will provide an opportunity to showcase what is happening in China and across Asia, as well as looking at the leading role companies in these countries play as suppliers to the global minor metals, specialty metals and energy transition metals sectors.
There will be plenty of networking opportunities again with the welcome reception on the evening of April 17 kindly hosted by CCMA.
New for 2024 there will be a gala dinner for all delegates on the evening of April 18. The pre-drinks reception is kindly hosted by Advanced Alloy Services.
To benefit from the early-bird rates please book before 29 January 2024, after which rates will rise.
