Join Steel Market Update for the final Steel 101 Workshop to be held this year, running virtually on Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 5-6, 2021.

Unsure what to expect from the virtual training experience?

SMU and CRU have been successfully running virtual events on our customized virtual platform since 2020, including the last SMU Steel Summit and Tampa Steel Virtual Conference. You can read some testimonials from attendees to the Summit here.

Surveys of past attendees confirm that our online platform is flexible and easy to use. You can participate in the course in real-time or on-demand after the scheduled training, and you will have access to both the platform and our instructors for several weeks after the workshop has aired.
