ILZSG Meetings

The Group will then hold its 68th annual Session in Lisbon on 5-6 October 2023. During these meetings the Group’s first forecasts for global lead and zinc supply and demand in 2024 will be presented together with an overview of current lead and zinc mine and smelter projects. In addition, a range of other topical issues will be addressed by a number of well‐known speakers.



The Session is normally attended by about 150 people from the Group’s member governments and industry representatives located in member countries as well as invited observer countries. Attendance is free of charge but attendees need to be a registered participant in a member country delegation. This is usually a straightforward process – for further information and assistance please contact the ILZSG secretariat.
