A global shift is underway as countries legislate an end to internal combustion vehicle sales and the automotive industry prepares for the next generation of electric vehicles to hit the roads with 2025 pegged as the tipping point in EV uptake as their costs dip below conventional vehicles, causing demand to surge.
While opinion is divided on whether battery metals markets will see over or undersupply, more and more companies are doubling down and looking to tap into the lucrative downstream processing markets, as exemplified by the WA Government’s Lithium Taskforce which seeks to establish Australia as a global battery chemical hub.
Building on 2018’s highly successful inaugural event, the Lithium & Battery Metals Conference returns to the Crown Perth this March 21-22 for a comprehensive 2-day summit; featuring in-depth analysis of current and future markets, updates from battery metals projects large and small, commentary from government officials and industry experts, and an increased focus on Australia’s downstream value add potential.
Held alongside the 22nd Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast and the 20th Mineral Sands Conference, the 2019 Minerals & Investment Week represents a major gathering of the Australian resources and investment communities, and a networking opportunity not to be missed.
The Minerals & Investment Week
The Minerals & Investment Week presents 3 Industry Conferences under one roof, allowing the finance & investment community, service, engineering & supply industries to switch sessions and plan a track to suit their requirements. In 2019, the 22nd Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast Conference and the 20th Mineral Sands Conference will run concurrently with the 2nd annual Lithium & Battery Metals Conference. A key industry gathering and a networking opportunity not to be missed.
“One Conference pass will give attendees access to all 3 events.”
