By Melissa Pistilli – Exclusive to Gold Investing News On September 12 and 13, come join thousands of investors, some of the most influential names in the natural resource investing community, and over 60 leading edge companies at the inaugural Kitco Metals eConference. Sponsored by Cambridge House International, the virtual conference runs both days from 8:30AM to 4:30PM Eastern Time.

As of September 6, over 4,500 attendees from over 75 countries have registered to learn about investment and networking opportunities in all aspects of the metals industry. From the comfort of their home or office, metal investors will be able to connect with members of the metals mining and finance communities, along with representatives from exchanges, refiners and mints.

“The New Face of Gold and Metals Investing”

What makes Kitco Metals eConference so excitingly innovative? It’s the first fully interactive, large-scale virtual conference in the world. Never before have this many attendees come together to communicate in real time with speakers and exhibitors through the mediums of webcam, text, and email.

Attendees will experience many of the familiar features of physical investment conferences, including live interaction with exhibiting sponsors, and presentations by newsletter editors and featured speakers. However, this historical event will also showcase live audio video interface for participants with webcams, one-on-one web chats, private conference chats with up to four people, and a Networking Lounge where up to six participants can be visible to the entire group.

Don’t have a webcam? You can still communicate with other eConference attendees, presenters, and exhibitors through real time texting and email.
