The world premier conference for the magnesium-compounds industry

Established for over a decade, Industrial Minerals Events' Magmin will once again be setting the stage for global experts to discuss and debate the most important issues in the Mg compounds industry.

Of course, as with every year, we will not only be focusing on trends in refractories. 

Other materials and applications up for discussion will be synthetic magnesia, CCM, magnesium chemicals and an array of end uses from hydrometallurgy to animal feed and environmental.

2016 will see Industrial Minerals Events take delegates to the heart of the European steelmaking industry.  Düsseldorf is on the doorstop of many important end users for the refractories industry and we want to ensure you’ll have ample opportunity to meet your competitors and associates but also your customers.

Together with our sister company Metal Bulletin, we will be leveraging our contacts in the metals industry to make sure the benefits of attending MagMin 2016 are made clear to Purchasing and Procurement Managers from the end user industries.

Of course, as with every year, we will not only be focusing on trends in refractories.
