Update July 2, 2020

As we have previously advised, HARBOR is relying on health, federal, state and county authorities for guidance on how to proceed with HARBOR’s 13th Aluminum Summit.


So far, over 425 delegates have registered to participate in the Summit, all WALT EXPO categories have been confirmed, and even more sponsors and speakers will be announced soon.


However, at this point in time, authorities have indicated that the lifting of travel, social gathering, and non-essential work restrictions will likely not be advanced enough by the second week of September.


Under this guidance, delegate input, and in an abundance of caution, I am pleased to confirm that HARBOR’s 13th Aluminum Summit has been rescheduled and will now take place on November 10-12, 2020 at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel, Chicago, IL. The same venue as every year.


A special thanks to our staff that worked very hard, ahead of time and under today’s unique conditions, to make this date and venue possible.


We are also grateful to all of our sponsors (EGA, RUSAL, LME, OARC, CME Group and Braidy) and all WALT Exhibitors who have unconditionally continued to support the HARBOR Summit and our industry during these unprecedented times.


A special thank you to all who have communicated with us to express your input, support and thoughts. Every conversation has been helpful and deeply appreciated.


Indeed, the timing of the Summit and the market intelligence and outlook that will be provided at our sessions will allow customers and suppliers of aluminum to ideally kick-off mating season for 2021, which is now expected to start in November.


The health, safety and well being of mind of our delegates and staff are very important to us. For this reason and following authorities’ guidance, HARBOR and the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel will implement important precautionary health measures during the Summit.


Please note that HARBOR will live-stream the Summit for registered delegates that are unable or otherwise prefer not to physically attend the event in November.


Let’s continue to work hard together toward even greater success into the future.


Very much looking forward to seeing you in November.
