About the Event

Due to the success of the event in 2017, the 7th CRU Ryan’s Notes Ferroalloys Europe Conference will again be held in Düsseldorf, Germany, a central European hub for the industry.

From 6 – 7 June, 2018, this  conference provides an excellent mid-year opportunity to network with key industry figures in the European ferroalloys marketplace, and set-up deals for the second half of 2018.

Key themes:

 Economic conditions and the ferroalloys markets
 Environmental regulation in China
 International trade – the evolution of international trade protection and implications
 Manganese ore and alloys
 Ferrosilicon – firm at high levels but for how much longer?
 Demand for chrome remains strong – but how will the supply side respond?
 Nickel – is class 1 and class 2 pricing divergence likely?
 How will Indonesian stainless steel fit into the global market?
 Molybdenum – will Chinese producers increase supply in light of good demand?

5 great reasons to book your place:

  • Excellent mid-year opportunity to network with key industry figures in the European ferroalloys marketplace, and set-up deals for the second half of 2018
  • Ideally located in the North Rhine-Westphalia region, where there is a high concentration of ferroalloy companies, steel mills, service centres and consumers
  • Gain insight via CRU’s analysts into the outlook for the markets through 2018 and beyond

  • Great value for money - to meet with so many clients would normally involve lots of travel and time
