Come April, everyone connected with precious metals business make it a point to be in Dubai. Why not? Who would want to miss the largest conference in the MENA region on precious metals. DMCC, Foretell & Dubai Gold Advisory Group is glad to announce the dates of the 4th edition of Dubai Precious Metals Conference on 12-13 April 2015 at Atlantis The Palm, Dubai.
Conference Theme - Connecting Markets Markets are enabling and essential infrastructure that connects producers with the consumers. Precious metals markets have transformed significantly in recent years due to changes in production geographies, migration of refining clusters, shifting of demand centres and emergence of responsible business practices. These changes have necessitated the emergence of regional markets to provide specific economic benefits. The next big opportunity lies in seamlessly connecting (integrating) these markets into a global market.
Philip Clewes Garner, Former HSBC said that this conference is different from LBMA conference, which is basically bankers’ conference. This conference is full of consumers, refiners, banks, regulatory bodies, jewellers etc that comes with varied mind sets and it works. The organizers should not change the model.
Accordingly to Mr Jean Louis Ekra of African Export-Import Bank, "It was a very interesting conference and could see a wide range of operators that come from various stages of the gold and other precious metals business. The networking opportunity also was very good. For us Africans, it is the first time that we are participating, so it is an excellent opportunity to have people knowing more about Africa"
The theme of DPMC 2014 was "Engaging with Africa". It was time to renew and revitalise relationships, bring in responsible business practises and add value in the supply chain and synergise with Africa. The panels also discussed important issues like consumption demand moving east, adapting to Indian regulations, Loco markets & price outlook. Besides, there was a lively debate on which precious metal would outperform and who would take the leadership as the next major global marketplace for precious metals.
Rhona O’Connell of Thomson Reuters feels that this conference is excellent as it is very well balanced and there is a very interesting blend of people here and thoroughly enjoyed the conference and hope it will carry on to more success.
Mark your calendar – the 2015 Dubai Precious Metals Conference will be on April 12-13, 2015 at Atlantis The Palm. Be there and leave the rest to us!!!
