With its informative programme, enjoyable social events, unique committee meetings and advantageous sponsorship & advertising opportunities, this conference will help you make contact with all the major market players and to learn about the future direction of the industry.

On behalf of both SteelOrbis and IREPAS, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to Istanbul for this premier meeting of the global long products market.

A delightful gathering in Istanbul

Istanbul is a city of wonders far exceeding what words can express! Straddling the Bosphorus, its skyline studded with domes and minarets, Istanbul is one of the truly great romantic cities. It extends over both the European and Asian sides of the Bosphorus and, as the only metropolis in the world which spans two continents, it is ideally placed to welcome visitors from around the globe. The best times of the year to visit Istanbul are from April to June and from September to October, i.e. roughly in spring and autumn.

STEEL transformed by ART

For the first time ever the event will host an international steel sculpture exhibition which will provide an elegant and interesting atmosphere for networking.

This conference will present artworks by twelve artists from across Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Each of these artists, who have chosen sculpture as their primary visual language, offers his or her own unique and individual perspective through the use of steel as a medium of creative expression.

Grupo Villacero is taking the lead in organizing and supporting these steel sculpture exhibitions, which have now practically become a tradition following the success of the initial events showcasing Latin American artists during the ILAFA meetings in South America. Now, in cooperation with SteelOrbis & IREPAS, the exhibition series is shifting its horizons to Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Networking opportunity with over 300 steel industry executives

Based on the average number of participants at past SteelOrbis & IREPAS Conferences and also on the venue chosen, we can predict that this conference will provide a meeting platform for more than 300 steel industry professionals. The Welcome Cocktail, Gala Dinner, Networking Breaks will provide the best possible atmosphere for you to network with all of your colleagues and to connect up with potential customers and suppliers.
