High Grade Speakers and Panellists to be Featured at Silver Summit 2010

I'll be heading to Spokane in October for this event. I'm looking forward to meeting some of the most serious silver bugs in the world.


Wallace, Idaho – With more than 1,000 attendees and 60 sponsors and exhibitors expected, Silver Summit 2010, slated for Oct. 21 and 22 at the Davenport Hotel in Spokane, Washington, will feature a high-powered cavalcade of analysts and experts on all aspects of precious and rare-earth metals.

“There is no single keynote speaker at the Silver Summit. Any one of the dozens of experts and presenters who will offer their investment and commodity wisdom to our audience this year could alone headline a conference of this size,” said Silver Summit Director Shauna Hillman. “The fact that all of them will be under one roof for two days, along with the CEOs of the world's premiere silver producers and prospectors in an intimate setting, is what has made the Silver Summit special,” she added.

Scheduled speakers include Sprott Asset Management's David Franklin, market strategist, who co-writes with Eric Sprott the monthly “Markets at a Glance” and specializes on equity research within the precious metals and materials sectors; Kitco gold analyst and columnist Jon Nadler; CPM Group co-founder Jeffrey Christian; newsletter writers and web publishers John Kaiser, David Morgan, Bill Murphy, Roger Wiegand, Greg McCoach, Peter Spina, Michael Berry, Jim Letourneau, Victor Goncalves, David Bond, and many others, including radio talk show host Al Korelin, who will referee numerous lively discussion panels.

Now in its eighth year, the Silver Summit brings together investors and experts in all aspects of silver, from its historic role as money to its modern uses in manufacturing, sanitation and medicine. Nearly every continent is represented in one form or another.
