Metso Outotec’s Ferrous & Heat Transfer business successfully organized “Iron & Steelmaking User Symposium 2022” across three different locations in India in November 2022 in India. It was held in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand (14 Nov, 2022), Bhubaneshwar, Odisha (16 Nov, 2022) and Toranagallu, Karnataka (18 Nov 2022) and more than 200 people participated in our events.
This was a first of its kind symposium that was organized by Metso Outotec since the merger in 2020. It gave us and our customers a chance to meet face-to-face, and at the same time offered us the opportunity to appreciate the numerous long-term relationships as well as the mutual trust that has been built over the years.
“The main reason for organizing this user symposium was to meet our customers who we were unable to see for so long due to COVID. Moreover, it also gave us an opportunity to showcase how our capabilities have strengthened post Metso Outotec merger. At the symposium, we shared our latest development on agglomeration technologies (most important being NextGen Pelletizing) as well as decarbonization solution for iron and steel making (Circored and Circosmelt). Another very important element was it gave us a chance to discuss experiences and receive feedback on the work that we have been doing together. During the big mining events which are more meet-and-greet by type, it is more difficult to have in-depth discussions. So, these customized symposium events were a good opportunity for us to discuss with a larger number of customers and for them to meet several of our top experts at the same time,” shared Westy Bialke, Director, Sales at Metso Outotec.
