Motto:
Stay in the Game: Regain Competitiveness to Capture Future Growth Trends!

Stainless & Special Steel Conference is heading to Rome, Italy, in 2024!

After successful events in Hamburg (Germany) and Zurich (Switzerland) with more than 300 participants from the entire stainless steel supply chain, we will gather in Rome (Italy), in 2024. We will meet from Sept. 17 - 19, 2024 in order to discuss the current state of the global stainless & special steel industry and all relevant issues that will shape the business in 2025 and beyond.

Sustainability, green stainless steel, and digitalization have been prominent themes at the past three stainless steel conferences in Como, Hamburg, and Zurich. While these topics remain significant, the upcoming conference in Rome will shift the focus to innovative stainless steel applications, which are expected to be major drivers of future demand for stainless steels.

Furthermore, a significant focus of the discussion will address how the European supply chain can regain its competitiveness to ensure the continued manufacturing of these products in Europe.

Join us to discuss future growth trends and measures to ensure the competitiveness of our industry!

Sustainability, green stainless steel, and digitalization have been prominent themes at the past three stainless steel conferences in Como, Hamburg, and Zurich. While these topics remain significant, the upcoming conference in Rome will shift the focus to innovative stainless steel applications (see list of examples below), which are expected to be major drivers of future demand for stainless steels.

Furthermore, a significant focus of the discussion will address how the European supply chain can regain its competitiveness to ensure the continued manufacturing of these products in Europe.
