The fourth Future Steel Forum takes place at the Grandior Hotel, Prague, 2-3 June, in the Czech Republic, and it’s going to be a real humdinger for one simple reason: the steel industry has embraced the event and delegates can expect to hear from leading steelmakers, R&D organisations, leading steel industry associations, academics and production technology specialists.

Dave Stickler, CEO of Osceola, Arkansas-based Big River Steel (BRS) in the USA is the opening Keynote for day one. BRS represents the world of high-tech steelmaking; his mill, located in one of America’s southern states, epitomises what can be done when a steel manufacturer sets its heart on developing the world’s first ‘learning mill’. Dave will be joined on stage by Prof. Dr. Ing Katja Windt, member of the management board of SMS group, and Stephen Pratt, founder and CEO of artificial intelligence specialist, who will explain the technology behind the success of the mill.

The opening Keynote for day two is presented by His Excellency Saeed Ghumran Al Remeithi, CEO of Emirates Steel, a leading steelmaker and an influential player in the global marketplace.
As CEO, Mr Al Remeithi has expanded the company’s product range, enhanced its production efficiency and mitigated its environmental impact. The company now exports to more than 40 countries.

Delegates will hear from leading players from the world stage of steelmaking: South Korean steel manufacturer POSCO will be speaking, so will Tata Steel India, ArcelorMittal, Metinvest Digital from the Ukraine, TMK from Russia, Kobe Steel from Japan, Liberty Steel Group, Badische Stahl-Engineering and Buderus Stahl from Germany.
There will be plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues and a vibrant exhibition too.
