At the present time (July 6, 2020), we are still planning to hold CRU Ryan's Notes Ferroalloys 2020 as planned.

With regard to Covid-19, CRU will continue to monitor the situation very carefully, seeking local advice from the Kierland, the CDC and internationally from the World Health Organisation, as the health and well-being of our clients and staff is our priority. 

In the intervening time, we are working with the venue in the preparation and implementation of infection prevention and control (IPC) strategies for providing a safe and beneficial event for all.  For participants unable to travel, we are in the process of developing a virtual compliment which will be announced in more detail soon.  This will provide overseas participants and those unable to travel, the opportunity take part in this important gathering with seamless networking.

We will post any updates on our website, and/or contact delegates directly.  We recommend delegates consult their own country's government guidance and company travel advisories if you require any additional information. 

If you have any questions, please contact
