The 10th Made in Steel edition, the international Conference & Exhibition dedicated to the steel supply chain, organized by siderweb, is preparing to open its doors from 9 to 11 May at fieramilano Rho.
There will be over 300 companies present at the tenth edition representing the entire steel industry sector, from production to use, through transformation and services, including logistics.
25% come from abroad, an improvement (+15.8%) compared to the previous edition, marked by absences due to the pandemic and the travel restrictions in force at the time, but also to the record edition, that of 2019 (23%).
Twenty-one countries represented at the 10th Made in Steel edition, including Italy, both European and non-European (Algeria, China, Egypt, India).
The exhibition area will exceed 15 thousand square meters, another record for the international event. Over 60 Italian and foreign buyers will participate in the event, thanks to the collaboration with ICE – Agency for the promotion abroad and the internationalization of Italian companies.
Not “just” a fair
Since its inception in 2005 there will be room for business, for relationships between operators, to grasp market trends and prices in advance. But the trade fair event will also be a place to reflect on the short and medium-term future of the national and international steel supply chain.
As the title of the 10th Made in Steel edition suggests https://www.madeinsteel.it/it/ – “Generations, re-imagining our world” – the generational shift exists and the whole supply chain is experiencing it. We must therefore focus on a strong idea: that of giving greater value to the steel community. To say it Paolo Morandi, CEO of siderweb and Made in Steel, who also hopes “an involvement of the world of use, the downstream part of a fundamental supply chain for our country”.
Thematic talks make their debut
There will be over 50 speakers, from Italy and Europe, who will take part in the moments of in-depth analysis and analysis during the 10th Made in Steel edition.
We will talk about new markets, the impact of the war in Ukraine on the supply chain, the new value chains of distribution and use of steel. On May 10, the public assembly of Federacciai will also be hosted.
The Made in Steel conference program, in addition to the appointments that will be held in the siderweb Conference Room, this year includes, for the first time, a series of seven events in the form of “talk”. They will be hosted in the siderweb Arena, in the center of pavilions 22 and 24 of fieramilano Rho.
Each moment will have a storyteller, who will introduce and illustrate the topic of comparison. From there, some virtuous experiences and case histories will be presented which, in the name of contamination between supply chains and sectors, can stimulate new knowledge.
