Introducing Our New Keynote Speaker...

We are pleased to announce that we have a new keynote speaker for Day Two of the Conference.

Elin Hauge (former Head of Emerging Tech Navigators at Evry, former AI Evangelist, Advisor & Strategist with Crayon, and Co-Founder of Network Development Hub) is a futurist, artificial intelligence expert, and business strategist. With her background from physics, mathematics, and business, she brings new and thought-provoking perspectives to familiar problems and connects the dots between the pragmatic here-and-now and the bigger picture of the future. Her talks span from value creation for business and society to responsible and sustainable application of algorithms.

Last Call for Sponsorship

This is the last opportunity to benefit from our sponsor and exhibitor packages and put your brand, products and services in front of leaders across the global precious metals industry.

Find out about remaining opportunities via our Conference microsite.

Why Come to Barcelona?

Besides the beautiful hotel and the prestige of attending the premier event in the precious metals industry calendar, what does Barcelona have to offer you?

1) Las Ramblas

Take a trip down the iconic Las Ramblas boulevard in the heart of Barcelona. Packed with restaurants, bars and street performers, you will never be short of food, drink and entertainment.

2) Museums

Barcelona is also home to a multitude of different museums. Try out the National Art Museum of Catalonia, which displays Catalan art spanning from the 12th to the 20th century; the Museu Picasso, otherwise known as the Picasso Museum, featuring nearly 4,000 artworks and exhibiting his early years in art school; or the CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona), Barcelona’s Centre of Contemporary Culture.

3) Camp Nou

For any football fans attending the Conference, Camp Nou is well worth a visit. Home of La Liga club FC Barcelona and with a seating capacity of 99,354, it is the third largest football stadium in the world and is a sight to behold on a sunny Barcelona day.

4) Sagrada Família

Beginning construction in 1882 under the architect Antoni Gaudí, the Sagrada Família is the largest unfinished Catholic church in the world. Still under construction today and not expected to be completed until after 2026, have a look at the unique state of this impressive piece of architecture while you can.

If you are interested in seeing the Sagrada Família, please note that this is one of the stops on the Gaudi Tour of Barcelona that we are currently offering to spouses or partners of any delegates attending the Conference. For more information, please visit our microsite.

5) Barceloneta Beach

Why not round off your trip by taking a dip at Barceloneta beach and watching the sunset? A favourite spot for locals, Barceloneta beach also gives you a fantastic view of the W Barcelona, where our Conference is held.
