Perth, Australia (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
More than 200 registered delegates are flying in to Singapore from all over the world for the industry-leading conference: TZMI's "Asia in Focus" Congress 2009. For those with any interest in titanium, TiO2 pigment or zircon this promises to be an important 3 days.
In the 12 months since the 2008 TZMI Congress, the titanium feedstock and TiO2 pigment industries have experienced, and are still experiencing, a period of unprecedented market dynamics. There have been significant supply-side changes, exchange rate movements, corporate restructuring and asset rationalisation.
All of this is impacting on prices. Also, the global zircon industry is undergoing a re-balancing period caused by supply/demand changes. There has rarely been a more compelling time for industry participants to convene, discuss and explore these and other pivotal industry developments. For those unable to attend the proceedings will be available on CD for US$850.
As with the successful events in '07 and '08, the TZMI Congress promises to provide delegates with exposure to industry developments, important insights and the current outlook of major players in the industry. This year's Keynote Speaker is David Robb, Chief Executive Officer, Iluka Resources. Other speakers will include senior executives from DuPont, Rio Tinto, Cristal Global, Exxaro, Matilda Zircon, Mineral Deposits Limited, Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha, Sachtleben, Zhejiang Shenghua Biok Biology Co Ltd, CMAI, Diatreme Resources, Beroe Inc. Presenters have been selected by TZMI to ensure that Congress 2009 remains the industry's best mine-to-market conference for the titanium-zircon industry.
