Event Overview

The industry's flagship ferroalloys conference

In a brand new venue this year, the industry's leading ferroalloys conference comes to Budapest in 2019!

As always, you can connect with the entire ferroalloys industry in one place, and make the crucial connections to drive your business in 2019.



  • Welcome Party - meet and network with your fellow delegates, where you can enjoy free champagne, entertainment and kick the event off in style!
  • Minor Metals Module - everything you need to know about the minor metals! You'll learn about pricing, take an in-depth look at manganese flakes, and examine disruptions in the cobalt supply chain.
  • Roundtable sessions – enjoy in-depth discussions led by expert hosts on specialised topics. This is your opportunity to deep-dive into hot topics and meet different people from across the sector while enjoying lively debates.
  • Increased networking opportunities – enjoy hours more networking at the 2019 event, with the networking lounge opening at 12pm on Sunday and an icebreaker event taking place before the Welcome Party.
  • Silicon-focused afternoon – join silicon sessions on the Tuesday, as an added extra bit of content within your event pass.


Topics to expect:

  • Will the current over-supply in the high-carbon ferro-chrome market in Europe be choked off?
  • How far can the low-carbon ferro-chrome price in Europe fall before it reaches a floor?
  • Will the recent increased flows of low grade manganese ore (less than 34%) into China continue or fall when price drop?
  • Can the recovery in the silico-manganese market in China prove to be short term or will it be resilient?


Why attend?

  • Meet the whole ferroalloys market in one place - over 820 delegates joined us in 2018 for 3 days of learning, networking and deal-making
  • Connect with steel mills from across the globe - in 2018, we welcomed 156 steel mill delegates from 36 countries
  • Hear from industry experts directly, and their thoughts on the future of the industry
  • Access to our Networking App – you can search the delegate list from four weeks before the conference, send messages and arrange meetings
