Update on SMU Steel Summit Conference

We have now registered more than 500 executives for the 2022 SMU Steel Summit Conference, which will be held in Atlanta on August 22-24. We will once again be at the Georgia International Convention Center, which is located right next to the Atlanta International Airport (ATL).

Over the past few working days, the following companies added new executives to our registration list (those with an * means more than one attendee was registered from that company): American Metals Supply Co. Inc.*, Blistein Cold Rolled Steel*, Canam Steel Corporation*, Crunch Risk LLC*, Dura Coat Products Inc., Heating and Cooling Products Inc., Minnesota Power, Service Steel Warehouse Co. L.P., Superior Steel Supply LLC, Triad Metals International*, Union Pacific Railroad*. If you would like to add your company name, or would like to add more executives to our registration list, please click here or go to this website:

After you have registered, you will receive a link that will allow you to access our room block at the four Marriott properties in the Gateway Center, where the GICC is located. Please note, we never use a third party for room reservations. If you are being solicited by a third party you will most likely be moved to a hotel outside of the Gateway area, or you will overpay for your room. If you have questions about hotel reservations, please reach out to

We never sell the names of our attendees to any third party (or anyone for that matter). You have access to the companies registered by clicking here. Specific names are provided to registered attendees through our app or online platform. If you have any questions about how/when you can obtain names of attendees, please contact

It takes a tremendous amount of thought and work to put on a high-quality steel conference. This year is no exception. I continue to tweak the program as I look for original, relevant content, supplied by quality speakers who will address the issues, inform, and entertain – and who will interact with our attendees to ensure the information is being delivered the best way possible. Look for more announcements regarding speakers and our program over the next few weeks.
