The Oxford Platinum Lectures, 2017

'The Rise of the Informed Consumer'

SFA (Oxford) is delighted to announce that next year's Oxford Platinum Lectures will be held on Friday 12th May 2017, in the TS Eliot Theatre, Merton College - University of Oxford. 

Following the success of the first event in 2010, the Oxford Platinum Lectures have become an annual staple of the London Platinum Week calender, welcoming the PGM industry's major players to the UK, and to Oxford, for a day of thought-provoking presentations and passionate debate, facilitated by experts and intellectuals asking and answering some of the the most complex questions facing the PGM industry going forward

The Oxford Platinum Lectures, 2017 will be no different, with the lecture's theme being: 'The Rise of the Informed Consumer'. The focus will be on the changing nature of PGM usage and on how buying patterns impact the value chain and metal prices.

In addition, SFA (Oxford) will be launching the next edition of The Platinum Standard. One half review, one half preview, it comprises analytical articles on some of those issues we beleive will set the PGM agenda for the years ahead. It also collates all the key industry data and indicators for the past 12 months. This will be the sixth edition of The Platinum Standard which has proved to be a highly sought-after PGM industry publication.

The lectures are to be held on Friday 12th May, 2017 (on the eve of London Platinum Week). We will be following the successful format of recent years, starting with registration and a light brunch from 10.00am, the lectures will begin at 11.00am with a finish time of around 5.00pm.
