“Each edition of the Eurocoke Summit – and our companion event, the Met Coke World Summit – brings a growing group of key decision makers from the coke, coal and steel industries to network and get up-to-speed on the latest technologies, processes and global market forecasts. As we celebrate the 10th edition of the Eurocoke Summit, we are honored by the fact over the years more than 1200 coke, coal and steel leaders from all over the world have attended this conference,” said conference director Andrew Smaha. “With the momentum generated from 2013’s Eurocoke Summit in Krakow, the Met Coke 2013 taking place right now here in Pittsburgh, PA (our biggest gathering of this sector ever); a beautiful and historic venue full of traditional Scottish ambiance; and the support from our advisors, this edition of the Eurocoke Summit 2014 will be a must-attend business event.”
There are many opportunities for key players in the coke, coal and steel industries to be involved in the Eurocoke Summit 2014. Program design is underway; Smithers Apex is inviting interested candidates to submit abstracts specifically on technological developments and achievements in cost-cutting (semi coking coals, stamp charging, blast furnace, alternative methods to improve quality), as well as plant management and operations, global expansion project updates, transportation and logistics, and emerging global markets. A completed submission should include speaker name, company name, job title and contact information, a topic summary and a tentative title and sub-headings (3-4 bullets) for the presentation. Abstracts must be received no later than Friday, December 6 and may be submitted to Andrew Smaha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
