Dear organizers, exhibitors and visitors of Metal-Expo’2020, the 26th International Industrial Exhibition!
Metal-Expo, one of the biggest industrial events comprising the congress and the exhibition, enjoys the status of a key business platform for exhibiting a powerful potential of the Russian steel industry and global recent achievements. This year, despite the tough situation caused by the microeconomic crisis and COVID-19 restrictions, the forum has brought together on its platform steel industry leaders.
It is worth noting that Metal-Expo’2020 offers all the steel market players a unique opportunity to meet offline under current conditions and discuss the most pressing problems of the global steel industry among them restoration of the economy after the pandemic, strengthening global cooperation, finding new growth spurts and jointly working out strategy of crisis overcoming.
An important role of Metal-Expo as a key event for industry professionals reflects the present and the future of such a high-tech industry segment as metallurgy and morphs into a new form today. In my belief, the exhibition will pay a weighty tribute to solving the governmental tasks of a complex support and development of the Russian steel industry, promoting the best business practices and strengthening competitiveness of Russian producers. The initiatives and conceptual approaches suggested at the forum will no doubt stimulate a further break-through not only in the steel industry, but in other industries as well.
Wishing all the Metal-Expo’2020 exhibitors and visitors interesting business meetings and a successful work on the field of this global forum!
Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, President
Greetings to exhibitors, visitors and organizers of Metal-Expo’2020, the 26th International Industrial Exhibition from Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs!
Metal-Expo, the annual industrial forum and the steel exhibition has long become an international event exhibiting tens world countries.
The event, bringing together on one business platform major steel corporations, steel producers, as well as leading scientific and research institutions, provides a good opportunity to discuss the most pressing problems and challenges of the steel complex, improve efficiency of steel producers and end-users, and work out ways of cooperation.
The events held in parallel to the exhibition covering priority directions of steel production, equipment manufacture, and solutions providing set up trends in the steel industry development strategy.
The steel industry forum has long proven its efficiency. In my belief, establishing a direct dialogue between steel producers and end-users, exhibiting industry achievements, exchanging experiences, and steel market trends discussing become major factors of the steel and steel-related complex development.
Wishing the organizers and exhibitors of Metal-Expo’2020, the congress and the exhibition fruitful work, success and well-being!
Chairman of the Organizing Committee of Metal-Expo
The steel producers’ forum this year is held under unprecedented conditions of extreme market volatility caused by the pandemic. The new reality teaches market players to be demand-responsive considering various scenarios and instantly react to any changes in the environment either positive or negative.
It is hard to overestimate the significance of professional communication and a business dialogue among market players. The present requires from all the steel industry professionals readiness for any scenario. Today, as never before, it is important to exchange opinions, updated forecasts, the best corporate solutions, innovative ideas and practices. For more than 25 years Metal-Expo has united professional community on its perfect business platform.
Exhibitors and visitors can participate in hard-driving events held in parallel to the exhibition on the most pressing problems of all the segments of the steel industry, metalworking, heavy engineering, metal trading, etc. In my belief, presentations, reports, meetings, panel discussions, and professional experience exchanges during the Autumn Metal Week in Moscow will help market players take in the situation and make right decisions.
For certain reasons not all who wanted to exhibit in Metal-Expo can manage it this year. Nevertheless, the exhibition will bring together the leading steel companies, tubes producers, hardware manufacturers, aluminium producers, steel traders and processers, as well as major steel products users, among them: builders, heavy engineers, oil and gas producers, as well as logistics and transportation companies. The whole range of contemporary materials, the most state-of-the-art equipment and solutions for the steel industry and metalworking, as well as steel products for steel consuming industries will be exhibited.
The industrial forum always provides a good opportunity to establish business contacts, find new market niches, and get an impulse for development. I am more than sure the steel industry quickly responding to any changes in the environment will keep its position as an innovative leader of the economy under any condition. Wishing all the exhibitors and visitors of Metal-Expo’2020 a successful event, new business ideas and good business partners!

Another annual Metal-Expo event is held at tough times making special demands on all the professionals in the fields of science, production and exhibitions. Lots of work needs to be done to restore and strengthen scientific and technical potentials of the country.

The main directions of the steel industry development were set out at the last jubilee Metal-Expo event. Company leaders and steel industry professionals announced strong intention to expand high-tech products manufacture with higher value added causing increase in demand for high-tech metallurgical equipment. Despite considerable shortage of exhibition spaces, one of the biggest expositions at Metal-Expo’2020 is dedicated to heavy engineering. Successfully managing the fallout from the crisis, members of METALLURGMASH International Union show sustainable growth in quality and quantity offering their customers not only a wide range of high-tech products, but also complex solutions to various most important scientific, industrial, and technical problems.
Welcome all the concerned to visit METALLURGMASH stand to inform of demand for new equipment, existing problems, and by this take an active part in working out the strategy of the Union for the nearest future.

In 25 years the exhibition has become a well-reputed platform to discuss prospects of the steel industry and present the most state-of-the-art solutions and equipment. Traditionally, the exhibition provides state authorities and businessmen as well as leading Russian and international experts a good opportunity to exchange best practices, exhibit achievements, and sign mutually beneficial contracts.
Today steel enterprises make a weighty contribution to development of the national economy, raise funds, and build and modernize facilities using the most advanced solutions. An extensive use of digital technologies helps them stay competitive, optimize management processes and improve safety. These and other issues will be discussed among delegates of conferences and round tables held in parallel to Metal-Expo’2019 while the best achievements will be awarded prestigious professional awards.
In my belief, the exhibition will help promote the national steel industry in the global market and create favorable business climate in the industry. Wishing you all fruitful work, constructive dialogues, and all the best!

Die Metallurgie hat als starkes Standbein der russischen wie auch der deutschen Wirtschaft eine lange Tradition. Die Branche ist ein hervorragendes Beispiel für den hohen Grad der Verflechtung und den sehr guten Stand der deutsch-russischen Wirtschaftsbeziehungen. Auch vor dem Hintergrund der deutsch-russischen Modernisierungspartnerschaft ist es wichtig, bestehende Beziehungen zu pflegen und neue Geschäftskontakte zu knüpfen. Die diesjährige Metall Expo bietet hierzu das ideale Forum. Die Metall Expo ist in den siebzehn Jahren ihres Bestehens zu einer festen Größe in der Metallindustrie geworden und hat sich in dieser Zeit zu einer der wichtigsten Messen im Bereich der Metallurgie und der Metallverarbeitung für Russland und ganz Osteuropa entwickelt.
