SMU Steel Summit: Attendance Record Will Be Broken

Written by John Packard

Our events team has informed me that registrations for the 2022 SMU Steel Summit Conference have already eclipsed last year, and we are well on our way to having record attendance. We are passing through 1,100 registered executives, and we still have slightly more than two weeks to go.

A couple of quick notes before I provide the latest list of companies who have registered over the past few days.

We still have 100 rooms available at the Atlanta Airport Marriott Hotel, which is located about one mile from the Georgia International Convention Center – where the conference will take place. We will run a shuttle bus between the Atlanta Airport Marriott Hotel and the convention center during event hours. These rooms are available at our special rate until Aug. 17.

We have a new app for this year’s conference, which we feel is an upgrade to our previous app. The app is already live for registered attendees. You can download the app to either your phone or your laptop computer. The app has all of the information you need for the conference – including the agenda, speaker bios, and a complete list of registered attendees. You will also be able to interact with the attendees through the app. Once the conference has started, other features will go live in the app. This includes live polling, questions/answers for speakers, and the ability to live stream a presentation should you be out of the conference hall for some reason.

Here is how you can download the app:

  • PC/LaptopLogin to the web version of the app on your PC or laptop at to prepare for the conference from your office or home. *Recommended browser is Chrome
  • Mobile phone: Scan the QR code below to download the app and take your agenda, appointments, and connections to the event (or search SMU Steel Summit in the app store). 

As I mentioned above, this will be the largest audience we have ever had for any SMU Steel Summit Conference.

The following companies registered executives to attend this year’s conference within the past few days. Those marked with an * will have more than one executive attending.

Alabama Power Company, All Weather Insulated Panels, American Iron & Metal*, Brose, Brown Brothers Harriman, Carrier, Charter Wire – Division of Charter Manufacturing, Clopay Building Products Co.*, CME Group*, Coastal Cargo, Daviess County Metal Sales, Fabricators Supply, GE Appliances*, Greenway Steel, Hatch Stamping, ITT – Wolverine Advanced Materials, James Burg Trucking Co., JN Linrose Manufacturing, Kenilworth Steel, Manchester Tank & Equipment Company*, Marex*, Master Lock, Mercury Transportation, Solutions LLC, MetalWorks, MTALX USA*, Newgate Global Resources*, PADNOS Recycling*, Phillips 66, Railroad Friction Products Corp., Ramdev, Salzgitter Mannesmann International (USA) Inc., Sanwa Pty Ltd, SCAFCO, Sheffield Metals International, Sherwin-Williams, Sims Metal*, Steel Cousins & Fencing, Target Steel, Tata Steel, Tate Access Floors, ThyssenKrupp Materials Trading NA*, ThyssenKrupp Steel Services & Distribution*, Titan Wheel*, Triad Metals, UBS Securities LLC*, Venture Steel.
