During the third week in May each year, representatives of the platinum industry gather in London, England for what has become known as platinum week. London is a historically significant trading centre for PGMs - where many of its properties and technical applications were first developed. Platinum week centres on an industry dinner sponsored by the London Platinum & Palladium Market (LPPM), which marks the anniversary of the inauguration of the London Platinum Quotation (the forerunner of the present London Fixings) in 1973. This event is by invitation only to members of the LPPM and is attended by PGM producers, refiners, fabricators, and traders. The first major event of platinum week is our ‘PGM Market Report’ launch, where a summary of the report is presented to an audience of Johnson Matthey customers, suppliers and partners. The report is then openly available on our website in English and Mandarin.
