MMTA 国际小金属会议报名表

The MMTA will return to North America with its annual conference in 2015. As always there will be an excellent line up of speakers at the conference which is now considered the premier minor metals event in the industry calendar. Toronto is a key location and is easily accessible from  Asia, Europe and other areas in the US.

The conference programme will address issues and developments across a range of minor metals including cobalt, rhenium, molybdenum, lithium, titanium, rare earths, magnesium, germanium, gallium, silicon, antimony, indium, selenium, tellurium, tantalum, tungsten, vanadium and so on. It will focus on those areas where minor metals play a vital role, for instance in aviation, automotive, batteries, renewable energy and electronics amongst other end-use sectors.

We are delighted to announce, that as part of the conference, 5N Plus is kindly sponsoring a reception at the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHOF).  This is home to the historic Stanley Cup which is the greatest prize in ice hockey.  The reception will be held in the Esso Great Hall on Tuesday 28 April for all registered delegates.  You can click here to read more about the HHOF.

Mississauga Metals & Alloys will kindly sponsor the coffee breaks during the event.
