So, why haven’t we released our program for the upcoming Steel Summit Conference in Atlanta on September 1 & 2, 2015? Well, we are waiting until we have all of our keynote speakers confirmed and committed. We believe we will have an exceptional program once again this year. As we have in the past, our conference will focus on forecasts for the industry as well as the key market segments which impact the flat rolled steel markets (automotive, construction, energy, etc.).
