The event looks set to continue its role as the premier event for the global iron ore and steel industry as the resources sector considers the outlook for 2018 and beyond.
The Global Iron Ore & Steel Forecast Conference is recognised as the key platform to keep up to speed on the global outlook for iron ore and steel demand / supply balance, where industry leaders comment on their future plans, opportunities and challenges for the year ahead.
There are numerous proposals on the cards for new mines and expansions in the Pilbara, which will unleash hundreds of millions of dollars in new mine construction development opportunities.
Key issues to be addressed at the 2018 event include:
- Iron ore & steel market outlook and updates
- The producers’ perspective on the iron ore industry
- The crystal ball on ore quality and discounting from the experts
- Status of the Chinese steel industry – Examining China’s iron ore demands, restructuring of the Chinese steel industry & changing steel mill requirements, evolving environmental policies and further development directions
- Development and prospects of iron ore price, derivatives & futures market
- Innovation & Automation -The future of growth, new productivity developments and cost reduction
- Autonomous trains, trucks & drills
- Innovation – Logistics & Materials Handling
This year’s event is part of the Minerals & Investment Week and will therefore be co-located with our annual Mineral Sands Conference, the inaugural Lithium & Battery Metals Conference and the new Pilbara Conglomerate Gold Conference.
The program is currently in development and will be announced in the coming weeks. If you are interested in contributing to the event, please contact Alex.Bennet@informa.com.au
