Past Attendees

Over 300 non-ferrous metal industry leaders and professionals from across the world attended the World Non-Ferrous Conference. These included managing directors, business owners, senior managers and senior leaders from global non-ferrous metal industry companies as well as Indian industries, along with representatives from industry associations and media companies. Sponsorship of the upcoming awards is a sure shot way of gaining attention of these influential industry members before, during and even after completion of the event.


The Non-Ferrous Metal sector is not small, it is comparable to the ferrous sector and the best part is that the non-ferrous sector expects much large growth than the Ferrous metal. Normally I attend conferences dedicated to the ALuminium Industry and this is the first time where I am attending a non-ferrous metal conference. Mr Mardia has brought us all together whether it is the upstream or whether it is the downstream industry.
If the industry has to develop, we need to see a lot more collaboration across the whole ecosystem, which is why I wanted to participate in the non-ferrous metal conference like this.

WNFC 2016 is a very good event and has been organized at an appropriate time. This event should take place periodically so that it provides a platform to the industry to understand each other problems and challenges and provide solution.

It has been a very wonderful experience at Mtlexs WNFC. It is a very important event for downstream mfg., primary industry to meet and discuss common issue so that they can work out and make common platform and sort out their issue and work out at a common ground.
