LONDON, Feb. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Driven by technological innovation, regulatory requirements and the relentless demands of developments in transportation, construction and energy; metals requirements and demand are changing. The challenge that the metals and mining sector faces is to successfully predict these requirements, ensure that the materials are available and to successfully market and produce environmentally responsible and profitable commodities.
Metals in the Future 2018, to be held on 19-20 March in London, will attract over 100 key decision makers to explore the future availability, cost, price and demand of key metals. With the input of over 40 expert speakers, the conference will look at the market realities that the industry must prepare for.
The conference will study the outlook for copper, aluminium, cobalt, molybdenum, lead, zinc, nickel, steel, lithium, niobium and others.
