The first edition of the Future Aluminium Forum took place in Milan, Italy on 8th & 9th May.
Organised by Quartz Business Media, the event was held in association with Aluminium International Today and consisted of a two-day conference and table top exhibition.
More than 150 delegates from across the globe gathered to hear from technical experts and uncover the myths behind Industry 4.0 and what this means for the manufacturing value chain.
It was a great couple of days and hopefully the industry is now poised to enter the exciting world of digital manufacturing - we all have to work together to make it happen!

An excellent conference providing the opportunity to network within a group of aluminium professionals
