Dear Friend of AZ Global,

Time has come to re-energise our industry after all the detours, distractions, disruptions, inflations, shortages and imbalances of recent months and years.

We bring you our new Online Aluminium Conference from 8 to 10 November 2022.

Our targets and commitments haven’t changed but we cannot go back to the way things were. We need to be flexible and deal with parameters which are not in our control, and scenarios that earlier were inconceivable, hence now have become a reality. So, this conference is to set us back on track to move towards our vision and what we want to achieve.

Are we ready to deal with the Black Swans? Are we putting the right contingency plans for the long term? Old contingency models are now obsolete. How can we reset and reshape the industry: restart, reinvent and revolutionize for profitability and sustainability and contribute to a better World?

We bring you this conference where the industry leaders from around the globe will observe our industry’s major challenges, and jointly explore the solutions we can execute together.

We are incredibly excited about what we have in store for our conference delegates in 2022.

Please take a moment to look through our website – we hope you will find great benefit in registering or even becoming a supporter and a partner.

I look forward to joining with you for this exciting event.

Best regards,
