Shaping a new industrial era

Altes Stahlwerk, Düsseldorf


The most important meeting place of the year for the entire aluminum industry.

The two-day hybrid congress format brings experts together live and digitally to exchange ideas and, in addition to market insights, finally creates a setting for a long-awaited personal reunion once again.

Sessions Business Summit


What will the powertrain of the future look like? What will the individual mobility of tomorrow look like? And where exactly do the opportunities and limits of aluminum lie from the perspective of the automotive and aviation industries?


Aluminum plays its trump card in the closed recycling loop. But is the material really already the perfect solution today? Experts still see an urgent need for action. 


The future belongs to the alliance of man and machine. However, there are many paths to the industry of tomorrow. The Summit offers interesting travel reports.


New markets and new players: top analysts at the Summit provide insight into the most important market changes and the most successful business models you should know about.

The Location

Modernity meets classic industrial architecture: The “Altes Stahlwerk” in the tradition-rich industrial area of Düsseldorf-Lierenfeld is one of the most exciting event locations in the region. The former Mannesmann residence scores with state-of-the-art technology, but at the same time has retained its industrial charm. In addition to the modern, spacious congress area, a cozy lounge area awaits visitors – as if made for networking. And the spacious, sand-covered beach club in the outdoor area invites you to chill out afterwards.

The big questions for the future of our industry can only be tackled together in a personal exchange. But that has not been possible for quite time. The ALUMINIUM Business Summit offers a first opportunity to get back into dialog, across the entire value chain.

Marius Baader
Managing Director Aluminium Deutschland e.V.

CRU's participation in the ALUMINIUM Business Summit will help to develop a better understanding of how current changes will affect market dynamics around the world in the coming years.

Dominic Halahan
Portfolio Director CRU Group

Aluminium is one of the most important materials in Europe's transition to a carbon-neutral and circular economy. However, our contribution to climate protection and sustainability is always influenced by political framework conditions. Therefore, it is extremely important that we discuss these pressing industry issues in an interactive exchange during the ALUMINIUM Business Summit.

Dr. Gerd Götz
Director General European Aluminium
