Several researchers and consultants from CRU also will offer presentations at the May Hong Kong event.

Workshops presented at the 2014 Conference include one on the future of scrap generation and consumption and another addressing the question, “China’s growth across the value chain – what are the implications for the rest of the world?”

CRU says in addition to offering two days of presentations the event provides “excellent networking and the business opportunities that arise from important industry meetings.”

The 19th World Aluminium Conference also is co-located with the general meeting of the London-based International Aluminium Institute (IAI) and is supported by Europe’s Aluminium Federation, the Aluminum Association of Canada, the Dubai-based Gulf Aluminium Council and the Japan Aluminum Association.
