The Silver Institute will host the 2013 Silver Industrial Conference in Washington, D.C., on October 22-23 at Capital Hilton Hotel.
The event is dedicated to the metal’s ever-growing role in the industrial world, and will bring together leading executives from throughout the wide-ranging silver industry and supply chain, to focus attention on future commercial and industrial developments, and the changing demands of the silver marketplace.
The broad industrial demand for silver, in just a few years, has gone from contrasting periods of capacity shortages to excess production capabilities, each affecting the varied segments of the industry differently. Total industrial uses of silver currently account for over 50% of silver fabrication demand. The current outlook for demand and usage of silver varies considerably through the different product segments of the industry.
Demands and usage will continue to change as new end uses are found, and exciting technologies and industrial applications evolve and grow increasingly sophisticated.
It is against this backdrop that the Silver Institute has planned and scheduled the 2013 Silver Industrial Conference in October, to focus attention on the near and long term prospects for industrial demand for silver, in the face of the current world economy.
Participants will include executives and experts from across the silver supply chain, including those from industrial fabricators, miners, refiners, bullion bankers, technology companies, and government agencies.�It will provide a unique opportunity to exchange viewpoints and experiences with other industry participant’s through the variety of presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities.
