About the Managing Supply Chain Risks for Critical & Strategic Metals Summit:

Position yourself to profit from the 'rare earth mania' - understand global supply, price and demand outlooks, new resource plays and investment opportunities, and network with mining juniors, investors, analysts and fortune 1000 CPO's. 

Supply chains are only as strong as their weakest link. Thousands of electronics, aerospace, military, automotive, cleantech and renewable energy technologies rely on a range of specialty metals for which there is often no substitute. The supply of many such metals-Rare Earth, Minor Metals, Platinum Group, and Lithium-are in many cases "at risk." Is your company up-to-speed on the availability of key raw materials? Are your risk mitigation strategies robust enough to offset oncoming supply constraints?

Infocast's three-part Summit offers a unique, 360-degree treatment of the challenges and opportunities around what is emerging as a pivotal "hot-button" topic for global high technology industries.  Status and Outlook for Critical & Strategic Metals: Supply, Demand, Risks and Price, the Status and Outlook for Critical & Strategic Metals, as well as the Virtual Hedging For Critical & Strategic Metals: A Tutorial.  Join the inaugural meeting of procurement, supply chain and risk management experts from the electronics, aerospace, military, automotive, cleantech and renewable energy industries as they get detailed briefings from nationally recognized experts on:

  • The outlook for the supply, demand, risks and price of the rare earth metals, the minor metals, the platinum group metals and lithium
  • Today's best practices for critical and strategic metal sourcing
  • Techniques for managing the economic, political and availability risk of these metals throughout your supply chain
