Event Overview


The zinc market is in a state of flux, and getting a clear picture of where it is headed requires in-depth debate and analysis. Metal Bulletin’s Zinc & its Markets Seminar has been providing just that for several decades now. Sign up now for the 2016 conference in Madrid to hear the latest on zinc market drivers and network with over 140 key industry executives from 96 companies based in 27 countries.

With demand expected to have risen only slightly in 2015 and LME prices at a seven-year low, the much talked-of bull market in zinc seems like a distant memory. There are many positive supply pointers for zinc with mine closures and producer cutbacks reining in concentrate availability, but as with other commodities today, the focus is very much on demand.
