SMU Steel Summit 2017 Registration to Close on Friday

Written by John Packard

The response to this year’s SMU Steel Summit Conference has been overwhelming. So much so that we will close registrations as of the end of business on Friday, Aug. 18. As of Thursday morning, we had less than 10 seats remaining to be sold before we reached a standing room only situation.

The conference will be officially sold out for the first time in our seven-year history.

This will be the largest audience attending a SMU Steel Summit Conference, breaking our record set last year (which broke the record set the year before).

We are looking forward to hosting everyone registered. We believe we have a very strong agenda and slate of speakers from the “Pre-Summit” program on Monday afternoon, Aug. 28, to the end of the conference around 3 PM on Wednesday, Aug. 30.

SMU President and CEO John Packard will have more details about our attendance and the breakdown of those attending the conference during his opening remarks on Tuesday, Aug. 29.

The Steel Market Update team wishes to thank every one of you registered for this year’s conference. Your support is invaluable to SMU and the goals we have set for ourselves to provide relevant and timely information to the industry.
