Emanuele Morandi, president and CEO of Made in Steel 2021 edition: «The numbers speak for themselves and this turnout amazed me. It was an exciting three days: there was great anticipation and a great desire to meet, but also the desire to understand where the steel sector is going. The supply chain is at the center of an earthquake, between rising prices and a shortage of raw materials, a surge in the cost of energy and duties. All themes that we have explored during this ninth edition of Made in Steel. Once again the event proved to be a safe haven for operators in the supply chain, where they can do business and discuss: it is a compass for orienting oneself among the violent waves that are shaking our market, a radar to intercept the trends of the future “.
