About the Organisers


Forum Europe

Forum Europe

At Forum Europe, we've been staging leading European political events for over 20 years. Our in-depth knowledge of the Brussels and EU market makes us the number one choice for companies and organisations staging political and policy events in Europe and beyond.

With offices in the heart of Europe, at La Bibliotheque Solvay in Brussels, our multilingual and dynamic team delivers excellent networking opportunities and high quality content, feeding directly into the policy formulation process. Our operations are divided into two distinct but complementary services:

- Conference Production

- Event Management

We work with a range of clients with varying interests, from large multinational corporations to NGOs and charities – and everything in between. We know that the success of every event depends on forming a strong, close working relationship with our partner or client.

Minor Metal Trade Association

Minor Metal Trade Association

The Minor Metals Trade Association (MMTA) is the world’s largest association involved with minor metals, with circa 150 member companies from 35 countries trading in metals with a collective annual worth of in excess of USD 10 billion. These metals are as diverse as Zirconium, Hafnium, Strontium and Rhenium – as well as all the traditional by-product metals such as Molybdenum, Tungsten or Indium. MMTA member companies share an interest in the free movement of minor metals in an orderly market; therefore an impartial trade organisation is vital for the smooth and efficient movement of goods from mines to consumers and recyclers. The MMTA works together with and on behalf of its members, addressing issues that affect the minor metals sector and using the collective depth of its membership to engage with legislation and other critical issues.
