The sixth annual edition of the Dubai Precious Metals Conference (DPMC) will take place on April 9–10 at the Address Hotel, Dubai Marina.
The conference will bring together miners, investors, engineers, asset managers and professional services representatives from across the precious metals sector.
The two-day event, hosted by the DMCC, responsible for trade, enterprise and commodities in Dubai, aims to explore challenges and opportunities facing the precious metals sector across key markets including China, India, the Middle East and Turkey.
Chief executive officer of the DMCC Gautam Sashittal said: “2017 is likely to be an interesting year for precious metals, given shifting geopolitical sentiments. With Dubai as a leading hub for the gold and precious metals trade, DPMC provides key industry stakeholders with a platform to connect and strengthen relationships across the value chain at a crucial time. DPMC has assembled a high calibre of panels and speakers who will provide unique insights into the market and stimulate discussions on how they can be best prepared to navigate the current business environment.”
“By capitalising on the Emirate’s geographic position, sophisticated infrastructure, and best-in-class regulatory environment, DMCC has connected markets between the East and the West.”
“Indicative of the role it plays today, the gold trade through the Emirate was valued at $31.6bn (£25.7bn) at the end of the first three quarters of 2016, making it the second biggest contributor to Dubai’s non-oil foreign trade. We look forward to continuing to work collectively with the industry to support the growth of this sector, and strongly believe that the events like DPMC go a long way towards this goal.”
