Get a jump on 2024 at the Tampa Steel Conference

Written by Ethan Bernard

While you gear up for the holidays, don’t forget that the 2024 Tampa Steel Conference is just a little over a month away. One of the premier steel conferences in the US, it will be a great complement to our record-breaking SMU Steel Summit this past August.

The event runs from Sunday-Tuesday, Jan. 28-30, and will be at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street hotel. You can learn more about the agenda, explore networking opportunities, and register here.

In addition to our event-filled program with the latest forecasts and intel from industry leaders, flock to the warm weather to enjoy all the great options Tampa, Fla., offers during the winter. At the conference, these include a golf tournament and a harbor tour of Port Tampa Bay.

We have surpassed 300 booked attendees, and are on track to beat last year’s record attendance. Though our blocked-off accommodations have filled, many alternatives remain nearby.

This period is high season for tourism in Florida, and the conference follows the Gasparilla pirate festival. You’ll want to book your room soon!

Below are some links for alternate hotels:

We will have attendees from all over North America. And everyone will be talking about the latest steel industry news! Here’s a list of companies that have already registered. Those with an asterisk next to their name are sending more than one person to the event:
