Best value in any steel conference! Port of Tampa does excellent job in organizing this conference with great networking opportunities and agenda filled with industry leaders and interesting panel discussions. Haven't missed this conference for over 20 years.

The Tampa Steel Conference is an excellent opportunity to get the story straight from the experts. You are exposed to members of every aspect of the steel industry from domestic mills and related associations to imports and trading companies and the American Institute for International Steel. If you have questions about trade and what is on the horizon, the Tampa Steel Conference will provide answers.

Without exaggeration I can say that the Tampa Port Steel conference is a TREMENDOUS value for the money spent. A nice reception the first night, followed by excellent speakers on day 2 makes the conference a highlight of the year for myself. Not to mention, that Tampa in February is a bit more comfortable, than being in New Jersey!

As a participant and speaker at the 27th Annual Port Tampa Bay Steel Conference, I was impressed by the knowledge and valuable information shared from other speakers, that immediately made me realize why each one of the Port Tampa Bay Steel Conferences has been a growing success.

I love the Tampa Steel Conference, and have been attending each year for more than a decade: the folks who organize it always do an outstanding job of bringing excellent panels and speakers together with enough "down-time" and events to be able to meet and network. The perfect mix, and a conference which also gives you great value: it’s short, fun, and a good bang for your buck!

Over the years, the Port of Tampa’s annual steel conference has evolved into a must-stop for anyone whose business is tied to the production, consumption and movement of steel between mills and their customers and along the metals supply chain.
