“The iron ore industry led Australia out of the GFC and there is every chance it might do it again as we crawl from the COVID crisis.” 15/8/20, The Australian
“Global brokers Citi, Credit Suisse and most of all JPMorgan have quite literally changed their tune on the outlook for iron ore and it could mean a new sweet spot for BHP, Rio Tinto and Fortescue Metals Group, along with a string of mid cap producers.” 15/8/20, The Australian
This year’s event will focus on COVID-19 and the impact to steel raw materials, industry growth & developments, optimizing value, managing & improving iron ore quality, developments in innovation & automation, process improvements and decarbonisation pathways to reduce carbon footprint, lower energy costs and improving the bottom line.
With the health and safety of our speakers, delegates and staff as our top priority, this years Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast conference will now run over 3 days via our fully interactive virtual event platform.
We believe that by going virtual the event will greatly facilitate interstate and international attendees and speakers, as there is no need to worry about flights, accommodation, border closures, quarantine periods and other restrictions.
As we look ahead the event will provide the perfect opportunity for the region’s iron ore & steel executives to come together to assess, debate, and anticipate how 2021 is going to unfold after the current uncertainty.
Join hundreds of iron ore executives, project directors, analysts, engineering firms, industry suppliers and many more for 2 days of presentations, discussions, networking and private meetings.
Just some of the key issues to be addressed at the 2020 event include:
- Iron ore & steel market outlook and updates
- COVID19 and the impact to steel raw materials, supply chains & operations
- Project updates & expansions
- Optimising value – technology developments
- Revolutionary decarbonizing technologies – Opportunities to reduce reliance on costly fossil fuels and their carbon foot print
- Renewables increasing important role in attracting project investment and maintaining a “social license” to operate
- Innovation & Automation -The future of growth, IOT, remote operation centers, new productivity developments
This year’s 23rd Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast Conference will be run concurrently with the 21st Mineral Sands Conference as a key industry gathering and a networking opportunity not to be missed.
