Tampa Steel Conference will be here before you know it!

Written by David Schollaert

The 2024 Tampa Steel Conference is less than two months away. It is one of the premier domestic steel conferences and a great compliment to our record-breaking SMU Steel Summit this past August.

In addition to our compelling program with the latest forecasts and intel from industry leaders, you’ll find all the great options Tampa, Fla., offers during the winter months: Outdoor networking receptions, a golf tournament, and a harbor tour of Port Tampa Bay.

The event runs from Sunday-Tuesday, Jan. 28-30, and will be at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street hotel.

With just about 250 delegates already registered, we anticipate beating last year’s mark with more than 500 attendees. Accommodations are filling fast so you’ll want to book your room soon. This period is high season for tourism in Florida and the conference follows the Gasparilla pirate festival. You can learn more about the agenda, explore networking opportunities, and register here.

Below are some links for alternate hotels close by:
