In the SMU Community Chat webinar last week, Paul Terry of CRU and John Packard of Steel Market Update gave a live demo of the virtual event platform that will be the SMU Steel Summit 2020 Virtual Conference.
If you missed the webinar, you can watch the live demo here. We explain networking, agenda, exhibition and other interesting tidbits that are part of this year’s virtual event.
So if you’re still unsure of how the SMU Summit can work online, be sure to watch–we have had great feedback.
Best Ever Agenda!
With participation from six steel mill CEO’s, economists and analysts galore, steel buyers and industry leaders, an expert on elections and election ethics, and more, the agenda and speaker line-up is probably our best ever.
Whether you’re starting out in the steel business, or a seasoned professional or CEO, there really is something for everyone.
