What delegates said about Fluorine Forum 2023:

Thanks for the excellent and well organised Fluorine Forum 2023 in Cannes. Great presentations and exchange of information with other delegates from the fluorspar industry was extremely valuable. We also had many opportunities to introduce our fluorspar company. It was our first IMFORMED event, but certainly not the last. We look forward to the next Fluorine Forum in 2024 in Ulaanbaatar!
Hasan Firat, Export Manager, Keles Mining, Turkey

Thank you very much for organising Fluorine Forum at Cannes. Everything was organised very well. I attended it first time and found to be very useful. It was great opportunity to hear eminent speakers to know about the latest development in the Fluorine sector and networking people gathered across the globe from 31 countries.
