The MMTA is delighted to announce that the 2017 Minor Metals Conference will be held at The Conrad Hotel, Dublin on April 24th - April 26th 2017

This year’s conference attracted more than 250 attendees and was among our greatest successes with more member and non-member companies attending, almost twice as many Asian companies as previously, and significantly more first-time delegates!

We believe that a programme of strong and enthusiastic speakers, alongside a growing interest in the MMTA, not to mention the location, played a huge part in that success.

This year will not disappoint, as we relocate to Ireland’s lively and friendly capital. Not only is Dublin the place for a good pint of Guinness – we swear it tastes different there! – it is also full of history and culture which we vow to make the most of with our series of networking drinks receptions and events. Of course, our programme of speakers will continue to be the highlight of the conference and we look forward to announcing our speakers as the programme takes shape.

The conference is not only the highlight of the global minor metals industry calendar, it is the go-to event to meet, share and learn.
