The steel industry has always had an important role in the great changes of the world.

We are the engine of the industry, we promote the generation of more than 1,200,000 quality jobs in all corners of Latin America and we contribute to the social, economic and technological development of local communities, countries and the region as a whole. We must continue promoting discussions to lead the challenges that lie ahead.

Alacero Alacero Summit 2022 will take place on November 16 and 17, in Monterrey, Mexico. The capital of Nuevo León shares a border with the United States and has a strategic location that makes the
destination an important logistics center and industrial hub. It is not a coincidence that the first
Latin American blast furnace was founded there in 1900.

Fortunately, this year we will be able to meet again in person, generating networking spaces. We hope
to receive between 500 and 600 people in the selected venue.

We believe in the importance of encouraging a close bond with those who are part of our community and the steel value chain. It will be an honor to count with your presence in Monterrey to learn about the latest developments in the industry, discuss possible solutions to the problems we face and exchange experiences with the protagonists who are creating today the sustainable industry that the world of the future demands us.
