Australia’s largest precious metals event and the peak body of the country’s gold sector have come together in partnership at a time when enthusiasm for precious metals is at its highest in several years.

With many gold companies’ share prices having doubled and the Australian dollar gold price nudging record highs, the organiser of the Precious Metals Investment Symposium, Kerry Stevenson, says: “Our collaboration with the Gold Industry Group is a fantastic way to show the strength of the industry and its importance to Australia’s economy. 

“The Precious Metals Investment Symposium, which will be held in Sydney in October, will bring together members of the Gold Industry Group and investors.”

The Gold Industry Group represents gold producers, explorers, prospectors and suppliers to provide a united voice for Australia’s gold industry and promote its importance.

The partnership with the Precious Metals Investment Symposium means representatives of the whole precious metals eco-system - from dirt to coins and bars - will be involved.

“There is a great opportunity for us to positively influence our industry’s collective future,” said Gold Industry Group Chairman Richard Hayes.

“By engaging and educating our community of the importance of gold; its role in the advancement of Australia and further enhancing its appeal as a store of value, we can ensure a strong, connected and sustainable gold industry. 

“Establishing and building strong partnerships with organisations that share our vision, such as the Symposium, is essential to strengthening our industry,” said Mr Hayes.

Ms Stevenson said, “International speakers will join local experts at the conference, bringing together every aspect of the precious metals investment industry to identify trends, talk business, and engage with customers and investors. 

“As interest rates turn negative in some economies and political uncertainty unnerves markets, the theme of this year’s event is ‘investing for real wealth in a volatile global market,” she continued.

This is the 7th year for Australia’s largest precious metals event. It will be held at Sydney’s Four Points by Sheraton on 10-11 October 2016. PMIS 2016 will bring together Australia’s business leaders and investors to educate, inform, network and do business in the important sector of precious metals.
