Upcoming Event: AIChE Dinner Meeting

Hello everyone, and sorry for the long break. As some of you know, I have been busy running “operations” at the International Precious Metals Institute (IPMI) for some time now, on top of my position as Chairman of the Board, and – most of all – on top of my actual job at Sabin Metal Corporation.

Strategic Metals – Staring down a Cliff?

White Cliffs of Dover

Things are looking up, though, and 2018 will be an exciting year. For starters, I am happy to announce a presentation at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers’ Dinner Meeting on January 16, 2018. The event is hosted by the Metro New York Section of AIChE at the Pfizer building in Manhattan. Please take a look at their website for details and registration info.

I look forward to seeing some of you at the event.

Happy New Year,

Bodo

The latest on Strategic Metals: Retire Overseas Conference in Orlando, Florida

retire-overseas-conference-logo-2With a month to go, time for a reminder of this event. Strategic metals are still a relatively new investment group for private investors. To provide in-depth information on the metals, their applications and price developments, I will be speaking at the “Retire Overseas” conference in Orlando, Florida, on behalf of Tradium GmbH of Germany.

Tradium is a large industrial wholesaler supplying electronics and technology companies around the world with Rare Earth Elements and Strategic Metals. The company added private investments just a few years ago and backed it up by launching Metlock, a bonded high-security storage facility in Frankfurt, Germany.

The conference is hosted by Kathleen Peddicord and Lief Simon, who for many years have offered services and education surrounding retirement and investment planning.

Looking forward to seeing some of you there!

Get it now: IPMI Conference App

Screenshot_20170508-1543591More and more people are using smartphones while the usage of thumb drives has dropped. So for the upcoming 41st IPMI Conference, the entire conference program will be presented via a conference app, developed and sponsored by Sabin Metal Corporation.

The app will allow you to keep track of events, navigate the conference floor, find and communicate with other participants, and much more.

Special sections will feature exhibits and sponsors.

Using the app is free for all conference attendees. What is more, the app will remain active for a year after the event so you have plenty of time to migrate new contacts you made to your regular contacts list.

How to get the IPMI Conference App:

Android and Apple:

In your respective app stores, search for “IPMI 41st Annual Conference” and follow the instructions.

Windows Mobile:

Please click this link: http://py1zqy.m.attendify.com/ to launch the web based version of the app. Note that there is NO Windows-supported app that you could download from the store. All features and functionalities of the web app are identical to the Android and Apple apps.

If you have a QR reader, you may also use the codes displayed in this document..

What next?

IMG_20170508_181738 (2)_LIAfter launching the app, be sure to create your user account which will identify you as a conference attendee. Please enter your name and how you wish to communicate with other members during the event. Feel free to add a picture of yourself if you like. It will make it easier for people to find you in a crowd.

Launching the app will take you straight to the “Activity” screen. This screen will inform you about the latest activities related to the conference, and to people joining the app. This screen will be very busy pre-conference but settle down and focus during the event to inform you about last minute changes or exciting unscheduled things happening right now.

A very important feature on this screen is the menu icon on the top left. Clicking this icon opens the main menu from where you can select the individual app sections. At this point, we are still populating the lists so come back from time to time to check what’s new. Complete information will be available two weeks prior to the conference at the latest.

Use the “Favorites” feature to mix and match papers or events from the conference schedule to plan your day.

You will find two kiosks in the registration areas offering live technical support during registration hours. For questions prior to the conference, please contact Bodo Albrecht at balbrecht@sabinmetal.com

We hope you will like this new conference feature and invite your feedback so we can improve it where necessary for future conferences.
