The International Stainless Steel Forum says that its annual conference will be held in Chicago, USA, from 23 and 24 May 2019.

The Open Panel Session will feature talks from Jim Lennon, Macquarie Securities, about nickel and the probable impact from the rapidly emerging battery market, and Andrew Purvis, director, safety, health and environment at the World Steel Association, about the risks involved in process safety management. The third speaker will be Scott Jennings, former special assistant to president George W Bush, and partner at RunSwitch PR, who will present an insight into the politics and economy of the United States.
