Event Overview

The largest gathering for the ferro-alloys industry welcomes you back to beautiful Barcelona

Join Metal Bulletin Events to celebrate the 30th birthday of the industry’s premier conference. For this momentous occasion, we’ve provided for ample networking opportunities with more than 10 receptions to make the most of your annual meetings; all of which you’ll be able to organise under one roof. The accessibility of the meeting rooms, grand lobby and conference halls will enable delegates to easily and strategically divide their time between the generous networking zones and the conference space. We have all of the Rey Juan Carlos hotel at our disposal and are utilising it to allow you to maximise your time in Barcelona; from meeting clients and listening to senior level panel discussions, to joining us in IFA’s 30th birthday ball.
