Town Hall Forum

Wednesday, 7 May • 8:30–11:30 a.m. 
Sagamore Ballroom

The Town Hall Forum provides an inside view into today's business climate from the people who know: a panel of respected leaders from some of the steel industry's best-regarded companies. The Town Hall Forum's moderated discussion format gives attendees a deeper understanding of the factors that help determine the direction of not just an individual company, but also the greater steel industry. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to submit questions to the panelists.

The Town Hall Forum is open to all exhibitors, students, all full conference registrants and those who have purchased a one-day conference registration for Wednesday, 7 May 2014.
