Whilst 2013 was a tough year for the ferro-alloys business, and the metals and
industrial minerals industry as a whole, there is optimism that we have turned the corner
and the outlook for 2014 is more positive.
"I get the feeling the worst is behind us," Markus Moll, Managing Director at SMR, said at Metal Bulletin's International Ferro-alloys event.
NEW for 2014
· Ask the Chairman – always had a question you wanted to ask, but not had the
opportunity? All moderators and chairmen can now be emailed directly on stage
with your question. Be anonymous, be controversial, or just be inquisitive - this is your
chance to shape the debate taking place on stage in real time
· New Delegate Messenger System – we’ve updated our delegate messenger service to
be more user-friendly prior to and during the event itself. Searching for and contacting
delegates to set up meetings during the event has now never been easier.
· Integrated content – we have now incorporated the previously separate minor
metals day into the main two-day conference, as a streamed session, to provide the
opportunity for delegates to gain more knowledge on this market without paying for it
as a separate event.
· More networking space – we are working hard with the Conrad Hotel to provide more
networking space outside of the Conference room for all registered delegates. We want
to give you every opportunity to conduct your business meetings in a more conducive
environment for the 2014 event.
