With a new location and new approach, an annual industry event now offers even broader perspectives on resources. The 2015 Silver Summit and Resource Expo moves from Spokane to San Francisco for its conference from November 22 to 24. This time it’s co-produced by Katusa Research along with Cambridge House International. And this year the Silver Summit’s about a lot more than silver.
“It still has the foundation of the silver conference but it really capitalizes on everything California has to offer,” Cambridge House president Jay Martin tells ResourceClips.com. “Given the state’s large population of investors and their interest in resources, it made sense to include a wider range of opportunities. Of 50 handpicked companies, we chose about 30 from outside the silver space.”
Marin Katusa, a guest at previous Cambridge House conferences and author of the New York Times bestseller The Colder War, credits himself with raising over $1 billion for the energy and mining sectors. Now channeling his energies into Katusa Research, he’s taking a prominent role at this year’s summit, where he moderates over half a dozen panel discussions.
“We’ve worked with Marin for a long time. He’s an incredibly hard worker, very connected, very well-respected and brings a network of new speakers and new institutions to this conference. The partnership with Marin is largely content strategy so he put a lot of thought into our agenda.”
Over 30 speakers will provide a range of insights for industry insiders and investors alike. Monday opens on a positive note with Frank Holmes’ Get Ready for a Better 2016! The following day starts with Recovery! The Dawning of a Bull Market, expressing Rick Rule’s indomitable optimism.
Other speakers include Rob McEwen, whose Midas touch raised Goldcorp’s market cap from $50 million to over $8 billion. Mike Maloney, author of Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver and host of Hidden Secrets of Money, discusses A Decade in the Perfect Economic Storm.
Investors are going to see 50 of the top resource companies in the world right now. These people do have stories, they are moving forward. This is a very select show.—Jay Martin, president of Cambridge House International
Frank Curzio, considered one of America’s most respected stock experts, offers his advice on How to Invest in Junior Mining Stocks. Streetwise Reports president Karen Roche moderates a panel of fund managers offering their top picks.
Junior miners come under scrutiny from a number of perspectives, as do other topics including energy, the economy, the Fed, the currency wars, gold manipulation and, of course, silver.
Through corporate presentations and exhibitors’ booths, attendees will meet and mingle with the people presenting opportunities. “Investors are going to see 50 of the top resource companies in the world right now. These people do have stories, they are moving forward. This is a very select show,” Martin says.
“It’s a tough market out there but there’s still lots of good things happening. There are some great companies making progress, companies are still getting financed, mergers are still happening, investors are still looking at deals. It might be a smaller show in this market, but I think it’ll be a much more productive show than some of the biggest conferences we’ve been to in some of the bullish years.”
