Metal Bulletin's 11th Middle East Iron and Steel Conference is the largest and most prestigious Iron and Steel Conference in the region with an unrivalled reputation as a platform for making contacts and doing quality business. With an international delegation of over 550 leading executives currently operating in the Middle East, North Africa and internationally this conference will exceed your expectations.

High levels of consumption have fuelled massive investments in this region's steel industry. How much will crude steel production increase and where will these expansions take place? With finished steel output being far higher than that of crude due to a variety of political and environmental factors, when can output be expected to even out and what is the difference between supply and demand likely to be? Trade patterns in the region will change, what will these changes be on a case by case basis?

As is typical of most emerging economies long products production continues to dominate but flat product production is increasing in importance. The construction boom is far from over but how will the consumption outlook change in light of oil price fluctuations?

Private sector investment is becoming increasingly important. What is the demand likely to be from light manufacture? The steel value chain is changing in the region and value adding strategies are becoming more and more common amongst local distributors what is the outlook in these markets?

With increased drill rates and new line pipe projects driving demand for OCTG and line pipe, what is the outlook in this sector and where will the demand be met locally?

DRI is still the iron of choice in the Middle East. How much new DRI capacity is coming online? What is the outlook for iron ore imports and production in Iran, Algeria and Mauritania and how will regional scrap markets develop?

Join many of the regions leading analysts and producers for answers to these and many other questions.
