Event Overview

The city of Singapore welcomes you to Metal Bulletin Events'
16th Asian Ferro-alloys Conference


For the first time, the conference will be nestled in the trading hub where significant quantities of material change hands before heading to various end users in China and other major economies. Joined by over 400 senior figures from the industry, you can hear about supply, demand, logistics and all other hot topics within the industry during this conference in Singapore - the city which ties much of the ferro-alloys industry together.

This event-of-the-year also provides you the perfect platform to meet potential clients and suppliers from all over the world, as well as to stay ahead on the latest opportunities and challenges the industry is facing.
