Due to a booking error by the Hotel Palace Berlin, we have been forced to move the conference venue for Pb2017 to the Crowne Plaza Berlin City Centre Hotel (Nurnberger Strasse 65, 10787 Berlin) which is just a few minutes walk from the Hotel Palace Berlin. This in no way affects the conference or workshop programme.

We apologise for this inconvenience, which is entirely down to a mistake on the part of the Hotel Palace Berlin and which, despite our very best efforts, we have been unable to resolve without moving hotel.

The 20th International Lead Conference, Pb2017, will be held at the Crowne Plaza Berlin City Centre Hotel, Berlin, Germany, on 28-30 June 2017. The International Lead Conferences are recognised as a unique forum for the exchange of information on all matters relating to lead, including mining, production, uses, recycling and the environmental aspects of the metal and its compounds.

Pb2017 is organised by the International Lead Association (ILA) and is the only global conference on lead that is run entirely by the industry, for the industry, with ALL proceeds reinvested in the industry.

Building on the success of Pb2015, the event will set out the future landscape for the lead and lead battery industries and consider how to ensure their long-term prosperity in a changing world.

Topics will include:

  • Market trends and forecasts for lead and lead batteries
  • Understanding future technical developments in lead batteries and the implications for lead producers
  • How the lead industry can reduce the environmental footprint of lead and lead batteries
  • Changing perceptions of lead products through reputation management and proactive communications
  • Adapting to the future global regulatory environment facing the lead industry.

  • Network with business colleagues and customers from around the world
  • Listen to presentations from expert speakers, customers and industry insiders
  • Find out more about industry trends
  • Support ILA in its work to create a sustainable global lead industry.
