The conference offered a platform for an in-depth exploration of a wide spectrum of topics pertinent to the aluminium industry. These included technological breakthroughs that are shaping the industry's future, raw material acquisition and its implications, market dynamics, and future projections. Other focal points revolved around primary aluminium, cutting-edge production technologies, and innovation.

Participants also delved into discussions about pricing mechanisms, premiums, operational costs, profitability metrics, and overall industry competitiveness. In addition, the conference directed attention towards secondary aluminium, the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM), and the pressing issue of recycling. Such comprehensive coverage of topics underscored the event's commitment to address every significant facet of the aluminium industry.
