The 22nd Annual Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast Conference will be held on 20-21 March 2019 at the Crown Perth.

Widely regarded as the premier event for the global iron ore and steel industry, the annual conference is the place to get the latest global outlook for iron ore and steel demand and supply, as well as hear from industry leaders as they discuss their future plans, and the opportunities and challenges that lay ahead.

With numerous new mine and expansion projects about to inject hundreds of millions of dollars into the Pilbara region, the Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast Conference 2019 will focus on exploring the iron ore boom 2.0.

Key topics for discussion include:

  • Premium lump and pellet vs. fines for China
  • Project updates and expansion plans
  • Managing the iron ore boom 2.0 – FIFO and workers’ camps, engineering requirements, skills shortages, cost inflation, and what we learned from the first boom
  • Iron ore price, derivatives and futures market
  • Innovation and automation – the future of growth, IOT, remote operation centers, and new productivity developments
  • Reducing energy costs – the role of solar and RAPS for mine sites
