The International Minor Metals Conference 2009
Istanbul, Turkey, April 27-29, 2009

The Minor Metals Trade Association's (MMTA) annual conference on minor metals attracted a record 170 delegates from 28 countries around the world. The MMTA conferences bring producers, consumers and related service industry experts together to examine the current and future market conditions for minor metals and despite the turbulent economic backdrop 2009 was no exception.

In light of the new cobalt and molybdenum contracts being developed by the London Metals Exchange (LME), it was no surprise that the presentation by LME's Chief Executive, Martin Abbott, had standing room only and this set the standard for following presentations.

Highlights of technical programme included an examination of metal markets (indium, lithium, rare earth elements, tantalum and zirconium) and also overviews of industrial and geographical sectors (China, Japan, recycling and electronics).

For further details of presentations or to learn about the 2010 International Minor Metals Conference in London, UK, please contact the MMTA Executive offices through http://www.mmta.co.uk/contact/.
