Running concurrently to the closed-door trading, conference sessions will provide actionable insights into current and expected prices, as well as supply/demand outlooks. Then you can make truly informed purchasing/selling decisions.

Networking & Connections

Multiple opportunities to meet new or existing contacts

There’s no better place to meet existing and new business contacts, with extended lunch and coffee breaks, more evening drinks receptions and a new breakfast meeting. In addition to all these social functions, a networking lounge, meeting spaces and enhanced seating areas provide perfect spots for talking business throughout the conference.
