Message from the Secretary General: 2022 SEAISI Steel Mega Event & Expo & Upcoming Events in 2023

Over the last year, SEAISI has been writing on the ASEAN steel industry and trends that are impacting. The research work is also expanded to cover issues faced by the ASEAN Steel Industry and presented in various global events. Some of the contents are published in the ASEAN Iron & Steel Journal and some on the SEAISI website.

SEAISI has also expanded its contents to include contributions from SEAISI committees, Technology Suppliers and Experts in the steel industry. 

Most of these contents will also appear in our very own SEAISI events, which brings us to the article today – SEAISI Events.

2023 SEAISI Conference & Exhibition in Philippines (end May 2023)

In 2023, the SEAISI schedule of events will revert back to normal, starting with the 2023 SEAISI Conference & Exhibition. This event will be held in the Philippines towards end of May 2023.

The SEAISI Conference & Exhibition typically focuses on overall global and ASEAN matters affecting the ASEAN steel industry. It is also a place for technology suppliers to show case their latest technology, especially those that offer energy & cost savings, process improvements, better material quality and lower emissions for decarbonisation.


Do plan for next year’s 2023 SEAISI Conference & Exhibition. SEAISI will post further details after the November 2022 event.

2023 SEAISI Demand Forecasting Event (~Aug / Sep 2023)

In 2021, SEAISI started a regional Demand Forecasting Event, modelled against the Worldsteel Association Economics Meeting. The purpose is to build forecasting capability in SEAISI’s Statistical and Economics Committee together with industry experts from the steel consuming sectors across ASEAN.

In August 2022, this Demand Forecasting event was opened to the public to share the discussions and findings with other external stakeholders.

The event will be back sometime in August / September 2023. SEAISI considering organising this as an in-person event. Venue and other details will be published later, whether this is an in-person or online event.

2023 SEAISI Sustainable Construction Forum & ASEAN Sustainability Forum in Singapore (end November 2023)

Over the last few years, the ASEAN Sustainability Forum focused more on Construction than Sustainability. Two years ago, SEAISI created the Sustainable Construction Forum to focus on the most important steel consuming sector – the Construction Sector. And last year, SEAISI brought back Sustainability into the ASEAN Sustainability Forum.

It was also last year that SEAISI combined both events into the 2021 SEAISI Fortnight e-Event on Sustainability and Construction. That was one of the largest online events that SEAISI organised, with many experts from Europe and around the globe on these two key areas.

Next year, SEAISI is likely to combine both the 2023 SEAISI Sustainable Construction Forum & ASEAN Sustainability Forum to address trends and issues on Construction and on Climate Change efforts.


The event will be held towards the end of November 2023 in Singapore. More details will be published later.
