The 27th CRU Ryan's Notes Ferroalloys Conference is the most important and largest annual gathering of ferroalloy professionals in the US. The conference has a trusted track-record for delivering 640+ delegates from across the full supply chain and facilitating intensive deal-making on a scale that's second to none.

We are pleased to announce the conference will be taking place in person at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes, in Orlando, Florida, this year. We are looking forward to welcoming you back for a busy three days of meetings, networking, presentations, and social activities. The event is the most important meeting of ferroalloy professionals in the US, providing an all-important opportunity to strengthen long-term relationships and to have commercial conversations about the availability and requirements of a range of materials. The conference will also feature an informative and well thought through live program, featuring a select group of high-profile industry leaders and CRU's independent Analysts and Consultants.

We will be closely monitoring the situation with Covid-19, and we are committed to providing an event which will be fully compliant with safety measures advised or required by the state of Florida and/or the CDC.

650+ delegates, from 416 companies in 46 countries attended the 2019 conference (2020 was a virtual conference).
