  • The S&P Global Platts Aluminum Symposium 2019 is the must-attend aluminum event of the year.

    The Aluminum Symposium brings every facet of the industry together in one place to discuss the critical issues your business will face. We’ll look at lessons learned in the past 12 months and what you should expect in the coming year. The program will focus on what’s at the top of everyone’s minds right now: tariffs, trade, global economics, supply and demand dynamics, plus more. Once program development is complete, we’ll post the complete agenda and speaker line-up.

    This year the symposium will be held at the iconic Hotel del Coronado off the coast of San Diego, California. It offers a beautiful, relaxing location on the beach with great opportunities for networking—including a welcoming reception the evening before the symposium.
