ArcelorMittal Europe was present at Made in Steel 2015, with a unique stand where Long Products, Flat Products, Distribution Solutions, Industeel and Tubular Products divisions gathered altogether to showcase their products and meet customers.
Made in Steel in Milano, Italy, is the most important Southern Europe event dedicated to the steel industry. The fair, with an international dimension, is the landmark for producers, traders, service centres, distributors and steel users.
According to the organisation, the fair boosted a 16% increase in sold exhibiting surface compared to last edition, and a 25% growth in expected sales. The number of exhibiting companies also grew by 5%, while attendance grew by 17%, hitting some 13,000 visitors. Foreign visitors from 68 countries accounted for 22% of the total attendance, compared to18% of the previous edition.
ArcelorMittal Europe has been rewarded as best international stand thanks to “an innovative design project, resulting from the use of precise and clean lines. The final product beautifully fits in with the exhibition atmosphere”, as highlighted the jury.
On Wednesday 20 May, Juergen Schachler, CEO of the South West Business Division of ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products, participated to a round table on sustainability, innovation and distribution. These are the three focus areas of "Industry and Steel 2030", a study of Siderweb which was presented and followed by the round table.
The seventh edition of Made in Steel will be back in Milan in spring 2017.
