ITA is pleased to announce that it will hold its International Tin Seminar virtually on 29th June 2021.

This is an exciting time for the tin industry as we emerge from the pandemic with strong recovery anticipated in the global economy. The current demand fundamentals for tin are robust and future supply will need to respond to increased tin consumption. Emerging technologies also present many new opportunities for tin use. In addition, new LME and EU rules on responsible sourcing plus increased regulation and requirements for ESG reporting will affect the global tin industry.

This free event will focus on the current and future issues in the tin industry, from the viewpoint of both fundamentals and ESG reporting. The two sessions, featuring a number of expert speakers, will address these topics, wrapping up with interactive panel discussions.
