Friday 1st December 2023

The 12th Investing In Tin seminar was held on Friday 1st December 2023 in the City of London and online.


Looking into the next decade, the tin industry faces unprecedented opportunities and challenges. Demand is set to outstrip supply before 2030, with up to 60,000 tonnes more tin required to close the gap. This represents a significant investment opportunity with forecasts indicating this gap will begin to open up by 2027.


The International Tin Association’s Investing in Tin Seminar, now in its 12th year, brings together investors, junior mining companies, and analysts from the tin world through presentations and networking.


The recordings and presentations from this event are now available below. The recordings from last year’s seminar can be found here.
