Over recent three to five years when the industry of Indium, Bismuth, Germanium and Gallium has been selecting the cream of the crop while weeding out underdogs and sieving sands off the true gold, the most competitive enterprises survive the storm and stand firm in the industry, however, some enterprises can only fade into oblivion while drifting in the industrial tempest. The higher environment protection standards, the tighter progress pressure and the tougher market demand have pressed stricter requirements on the raw material supply of Indium, Bismuth, Germanium and Gallium. Meanwhile, the stable growth on the market has broken dawn for the insiders. The transparent information enables the supply-demand sides to precisely match one another’s demands and more practically stay close to the market trend. The insiders urgently need a dedicated professional platform where they can jointly explore opportunities, together let their voice heard and coordinately develop.
The International Forum of Indium, Bismuth, Germanium and Gallium was initiated in 2008. A dedicated international conference for products of Indium, Bismuth, Germanium and Gallium is held each year. Each conference has been well attended by over 150 enterprises all over the globe. Till now, 11 conferences have been successfully held in Changsha in Hunan, Nanjing in Jiangsu, Kunming in Yunnan, Xiamen in Fujian, Sanya in Hainan and other places, which have been honored as the Globally Primary Conference of Indium, Bismuth, Germanium and Gallium. With laurels behind and glory ahead, we are now expecting the 12th forum to turn to a new page and start a new journey together.
The 12th International Forum of Indium, Bismuth, Germanium and Gallium will be held in Zhuhai, Guangdong, on March 13th and 15th in 2019. This forum will provide an opportunity for industrial elite to compare notes, come into new acquaintance, solidify old friends, discuss the market, share the information and together hear the unique insights and well-informed analysis about the burning issues and major concerns, with the aim at spark wisdom and snatch opportunities.
