Metal Bulletin Events is hosting its World Lead Conference in Milan in March 2015.
Now in its seventh year, the event has established itself as the flagship event dedicated to the lead industry. The beautiful hub city of Milan is an excellent location for the event, which provides a forum for industry leaders from throughout the supply chain to discuss important challenges and opportunities that the market is facing.

The two-day conference has an expert panel of speakers and a great mix of delegates from every segment of the supply chain, which provides outstanding educational and networking opportunities. If you are a miner, producer, trader or buyer of lead you cannot afford to miss it.
