SMU Steel Summit returns live, in-person for 2021
The SMU team are excited to announce that SMU Steel Summit will return to its live, in-person format this August 2021, in Atlanta, Georgia.
We have been speaking to our past attendees, speakers and steel industry leaders and the appetite to meet face-to-face has been strong. With Covid-19 vaccines rolling out, we are cautiously optimistic that we can return to almost normal by the summer. We will be closely monitoring the situation with Covid-19, and we are committed to providing an event which will be fully compliant with safety measures advised or required by the state of Georgia and/or the CDC.
What can you expect in 2021?
