“UBS believes demand for lithium will quintuple by 2025” – Australian Financial Review, December 6, 2017

Battery technology has brought stability to renewables and made the electric vehicle dream a reality. The battery industry is seeing unprecedented demand as the global energy sector transitions into clean energy and electric vehicles disrupt the internal combustion engine’s conventional hold on the automotive industry.

On the back of this paradigm shift, battery metals such as lithium and cobalt have seen a huge surge in prices, while copper, nickel, graphite and rare earths are buoyed by new markets to explore. With demand forecast to increase exponentially for the foreseeable future investors are rushing to get in on the ground floor.

It is with this charged atmosphere that Informa Australia are pleased to announce the inaugural Lithium & Battery Metals Conference, to be held on the 21st – 22nd March, 2018 at the Crown Perth, Western Australia. This conference shall bring together upstream and downstream battery metal interests; involving key discussions on market forecasts, current and upcoming projects, technological breakthroughs, and the future of Australia’s battery industry.

Held alongside the 21st Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast, the 19th Mineral Sands Conferences and the inaugural Pilbara Conglomerate Gold Conference, this event marks a key industry gathering and a networking opportunity not to be missed.

The Minerals & Investment Week

The Minerals & Investment Week presents 4 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. This year, the 21st Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast Conference and the 19th Mineral Sands Conference will run concurrently with the inaugural Lithium & Battery Metals Conference and the newly launched Pilbara Conglomerate Gold Conference. A key industry gathering and a networking opportunity not to be missed.
