This year's Nordic event for steel trade – get ready for the steel industry's challenges in 2024

Stålforeningen and EUROMETAL has joined forces around the biggest Danish congress for the steel trade in 2023, with twice as many speakers, a two-day program and a networking dinner. 

For the 15th time, the Steel Association brings together the Danish steel trade, and to celebrate the success and great attraction that Staaltrends has from the entire industry, we have teamed up with our European organization EUROMETAL to organize 2 exciting days with high professional content about the steel market in Denmark, in the Nordics and in Europe, in the heart of Copenhagen.

We bring together everyone, from steelworks to steel-consuming companies, with an interest in market assessments, expectations about needs, demand and price developments. You gain insight into which factors are expected to affect steel's path to Denmark, the Nordics and Europe the most, so you can make your own decisions about how you want to react if or when the factors occur.

We look at new well-documented customer requirements as a result of e-commerce and how it affects the wholesaler's role. You will hear the latest status on political regulation via CBAM, ETS, anti-dumping and Safeguards.

You will learn more about the upcoming harmonized standards for steel and aluminum constructions, and when and how it affects your everyday life.

And of course you get the latest status on the Danish economy, because it doesn't help much to have the products ready if customers only think about rising interest rates.

The points are some of the topics that we try to illuminate via presentations at a high professional level from the best presenters. Attend both days, or just the one that is most relevant to you, and be better equipped to understand expectations for the steel market in 2024.

In addition, you have the opportunity of the unique professional network with the rest of the industry from Denmark, the Nordics and the rest of Europe.

October 4th and 5th 2023

Steel in the Danish industry

As is known at Staaltrends, we get several of the country's experts to tell us about the Danish steel market:

Assessment of the most important key factors for the steel industry in 2024 and their effect on supply, demand and specifically how the price is expected to develop in the coming years.

Assessment of the strength of the Danish economy, expectations for interest rate developments, house prices and what else is relevant to the steel companies' ability to sell goods.

What does the future of the wholesale sector look like and what is the assessment of the new requirements for both e-commerce and the sellers, from the professional buyer.

What will the standards include, which rules do they replace, when will implementation take place and is there a transition period?

Dinner on the evening of October 4th

The dinner will be held at Tivoli Hotel at 19.00.

You will need to book a seat for the dinner while registering for the event to gain access.
If you are attending the dinner, please let us know of any allergies or other things we need to take into consideration.

Registration for the dinner is now closed!

In addition to many highly qualified presentations, both days give you a unique opportunity to expand your professional network to the rest of the industry.

And this time not just in Denmark but also with contacts in the Nordics and from the rest of Europe.

Many companies participate with several contact persons - do you do that too?

Practical information

One or two days

It's entirely up to you whether you want to participate on one or both days. By participating on both days, an attractive discount price is obtained.

Getting there

Copenhagen Airport (CPH) is connected to most international airports via direct flights.

Copenhagen city is easily accessible with public transport – trains, metro and busses. Tivoli Hotel is located close to Copenhagen Central Station and right next to Dybølsbro S-train station, just one stop from the Central Station.


After registration, an invoice will be sent, which must be paid ahead of the event. We can issue an invoice in DKK or EURO, but unfortunately cannot switch between the currencies. So we ask you to select the desired currency when registering. If DKK is desired, the Danish registration page is selected, while the English one is used for EURO.


Registration is binding, but you are very welcome to change your name and send a colleague if you aren't able to show up.

Registration form

If you need to register several participants from your company, you are welcome to complete one registration per person. Otherwise, send us an email with names and emails and we'll figure it out.


There is a multi-storey car park directly attached to the hotel.


Both congress days and the dinner take place at the Tivoli Hotel in Copenhagen, which is why we also recommend that this be used for accommodation. If you wish to use another hotel, the closest ones are shown on the map below. When staying overnight at the Tivoli Hotel, there is a discount code that appears below.


Please notify us during registration about allergies or anything else we should take into account so that you have a good experience.

Conference room

The venue is the auditorium in the basement, so everyone sits comfortably and has an unobstructed view of the speakers.


Wifi is available in the auditorium.

Materials and presentations

The materials are normally sent out immediately after the event is over and, unless you hear otherwise from the presenter, you will therefore receive links to the materials afterwards. 


We collect email adresses from all participants in order to be able to send out practical information and the presentations after the event. The email will also be used to send out information about Ståltrends 2024 and you can always be deleted from the system. 


In connection with Staaltrends and EUROMETAL Regional Meeting Nordics 2023, no rooms have been reserved for overnight stays, but on the occasion we have a discount code for the Tivoli Hotel if you book accommodation here.

Book a room at Tivoli Hotel with discount.
