Quintiq metals user group meeting 2017

When : May 18, 2017
Where : Hyatt Hotel Düsseldorf,
Speditionstraße 19,s
40221 Düsseldorf

Our theme this year is "Analyze. Enable. Optimize."

Market fluctuations, energy efficiency, carbon taxes, and the oversupply of steel from China. These are just some of the issues that will be discussed at the 2017 Quintiq metals user group meeting in Düsseldorf.

The meeting is a one-day event held exclusively for Quintiq customers in the metals industry to network and exchange ideas. More than that, customers will also get to explore the latest innovations and solutions by Quintiq and hear success stories from their peers.

This event is by invite only and will be conducted in German and English. Participants are invited to a pre-event dinner on May 17 at the Günnewig Restaurant Top 180 at the Rhinetower Düsseldorf.

        Good networking opportunities and it was motivating to see other customers facing similar issues and challenges.
