At the request of the industry, Argus Media launched this two day event, which brought together global industry executives involved with light metals, including Aluminium, Magnesium, Silicon metal and Manganese. At such an important time of year, the conference provided the perfect platform for delegates to meet and conclude business, while offering the opportunity to learn how the markets will evolve over the coming years.

With the consolidation of the silicon market, and magnesium prices in China at an 11 year low, this conference attracted traders, producers and consumers, to address the impact of these market developments, and the broader influence of the aluminium alloy industry. The manganese metal market was also covered, with a focus on supply dynamics and steel industry consumption trends, while experts in the scrap market discussed growth patterns in secondary aluminium.
