Event Objective

The Global Steel Innovation Forum is conference cum exhibition platform to showcase the disruptive and cutting-edge technological innovations in the steel and associated sector which can bring in a big change in the operational efficiency, cost-effectiveness and take the whole process to the next level.

The idea is to bring forth the innovations which can be co-opted and adopted rather than getting reinvented with an intent to channelize the available resources for researching, innovating and achieving the NEW & the NEXT.
