Event Overview

The 13th Aluminum Summit, to be held in Philadelphia this year, will gather the most influential players from across the supply chain to assess the current situation and brainstorm solutions to get the market back to a sustainable situation.

The aluminum industry is in a moment of uncertainty and pressure, with premiums reaching unprecedented numbers.  Capacity cutbacks and high demand from financing deals are raising questions as to supply and about what these developments ultimately means for consumers. LME warehousing regulation has not played out as expected, and scrap supply is tight, both factors increasing concern about where the market is headed.

In the midst of these tight supply conditions, demand in for aluminum in the US is strong, driven by a strengthening automotive market that is increasingly looking towards aluminum as a material of choice. 


Join us in May to benefit from the first rate networking opportunities and insightful content that will help you position your business ahead of your competitors.
