What the community thinks

“Best gathering of lithium industry professionals that I’ve been to.”

If you want to meet high-level industry insiders, this is the best event to go to, because almost everyone will be there.

Very good opportunity to meet all the lithium industry key persons, and to learn all about what’s going on at the moment.

Excellent networking opportunity for all the main and emerging parties in the battery and raw materials markets – to meet and discuss issues in the industry.

It was a good opportunity to learn about the latest industry trends and the outlook for the lithium industry, and it was a useful conference to learn about new business opportunities and technologies.

That’s where you can meet the who’s who of lithium.”
