The Future Aluminium Forum opened its two-day online event on Wednesday 1st December with over 200 attendees. The event provided its delegates with a detailed platform which contained a full conference program, exhibition centre, networking centre, resources and more.
Opened by Nadine Bloxsome, Programme Director and Head Editor of the Aluminium International Today magazine, she noted that the digital event hopefully marks the end of the hardships presented by COVID-19 as there is hope of holding the event live and in person in 2022.
The Future Aluminium Forum provided the industry with a platform to keep connected. Using technology to keep us connected during the difficult times presented by Covid- 19; we can now hope for a brighter future, where we hold in-person conferences and where the technology enabling the transition to Industry 4.0 production develops further. Together we can make the future possible.
