This year, SPW has received strong support from the local government of Shanghai’s Lin-Gang Special Area, where an international PGMs Tech and Trade Centre was established in September 2022. Additionally, three Chinese industrial bodies representing the biggest PGM end-users in fiberglass, petroleum and chemistry, hydrogen and fuel cells, will also participate.

As an international event, SPW2023 will continue to engage with the global PGM supply chain. Senior management from AngloAmerican plc and Northam Platinum will attend the Summit, and Johnson Matthey and Heraeus have confirmed their participation. Guangzhou Futures Exchange, which is planning to launch the first platinum and palladium futures contract in China, and Japan Exchange Group will also be present.

To reach a wider audience, SPW2023 has partnered with Hubilo, a leading virtual event platform, and will provide virtual attendance for delegates worldwide. The China PGM Market Summit and AngloAmerican plc event will be live-streamed bilingually. For more information, please visit or contact Grace Lin at .
