Tampa Steel Conference: It's the final countdown!

Written by Ethan Bernard

The 35th Annual Tampa Steel Conference starts in just a few days. As one of the premier domestic steel conferences, it’s the perfect way to kick off 2024. It’s not too late to register if you haven’t already done so, but make sure to book now!

Over 500 delegates and nearly 300 companies have already signed up to join us at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street for the event that runs from Sunday through Tuesday, Jan. 28-30. With recent winter weather around the country, visiting Tampa is a great way to beat the frosty January temps.

We’ve already beat last year’s attendance, so you won’t want to miss out. On hand will be executives from steel mills, trading companies, manufacturing, distribution, logistics, warehouses, and ports, as well as industry analysts, bankers, and suppliers.

You can learn more about the agenda and explore networking opportunities here. Not to mention register for the golf tournament and a harbor tour of Port Tampa Bay.

Hotel accommodations

Though our blocked-off accommodations have been filled, some nearby alternatives are still available. Below are some links for alternative hotels:

Tampa Steel Conference App

This year’s conference app has launched, so be sure to download it ahead of time to prepare for the conference. It’s available for download in Android and Apple stores.

The Tampa Steel Conference 2024 app is only available to registered delegates who have paid their registration fee.
