MMTA's China Minor Metals Seminar

Following on from the success of the MMTA’s China Minor Metals Seminar in Hong Kong last year we are delighted to to announce that the MMTA will be holding a 2 day conference at the Kerry Hotel, Hong Kong during 4-5 November 2019, organised by Metal Events Ltd.

China remains a key producer of a range of minor metals that are vital in technologies such as renewable energy, electronics, aviation and the automotive industries. It also dominates the supply of several minor metals to the rest of the world.

The early-bird fee is GBP600/USD850 per person for MMTA members or GBP700/USD1000 per person for non-members and these rates are valid for all registrations completed by July 15 2019.
