In case you missed this event, there is now a convenient and inexpensive way to watch most presentations and the podium discussions of our “Precious Metals and Mobility” Symposium which took place in New Brunswick, NJ, a little over a month ago.

Kitco News provided news coverage for the event, and created the recordings for IPMI free of charge. All proceedings will benefit the IPMI, a charitable organization. Please follow this link to get to Kitco’s event page:

IPMI Symposium Update

Hi everyone,

It’s finally happening! Tonight, we’ll kick off the “Precious Metals and Mobility” Symposium in New Brunswick, New Jersey. A few updates:

We know several of you are not having fun traveling today with the storm going on in our area. So please note that the Welcome Reception tonight has been moved to 7pm (was 6pm), and we’ll save you a drink.

Also, please view or download the final version of the event program here. Note the times, rooms, and the one speaker change on Tuesday.

We look forward to seeing everyone at The Heldrich tonight.

Precious Metals & Mobility Symposium – Cutoff Date for special rates is March 26

It’s finally happening: IPMI’s first symposium on the transformation of the automotive industry will start April 16. We have an exciting slate of speakers covering many different aspects of this topic. Sign up now as space is limited (seriously, the room will hold 90 people max).

Kitco News will provide news coverage, and it looks like we’ll have Tesla Model 3 to check out on Wednesday. Don’t miss out – hope to see you next month in East Brunswick.

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.
