The September meeting of the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) discussed the upcoming LBMA/LPPM Global Precious Metals Conference in Lisbon as well as the Annual Dinner and Seminar on December 7 in London.
The PAC devotes much of its time to the conference speaker programme. By September, the programme is decided but there are always last minute tweaks when a speaker has to pull out or schedules change. This year, as well as the usual conference sessions, we decided to include Champagne Roundtables on the topics of ASM, Silver, Meet the Speaker, Tokenised Commodities and LBMA Membership.
We unfortunately had to cancel the Annual Dinner in 2021 due to Covid-19, but planning is well advanced for the 2022 dinner at the Natural History Museum. The PAC agreed a shortlist of preferred dinner speakers as well as potential speakers for the seminar. Those speakers and further details will all be announced soon.
