Announcement: PacRim Stainless 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australian Stainless Steel Development Association (ASSDA) and its Board of Directors have come to the disappointing but necessary decision to cancel this year’s PacRim Stainless conference, including the Australian Industry Stainless Steel Supplier and Fabricator Awards 2020, which was due to be held 14 and 15 October at QT Gold Coast.

While we are still five months out from the event, the prevailing uncertainty, travel restrictions and financial risk to the Association deemed it necessary to make the call now. Our overall health and wellbeing are of utmost importance, and in the meantime we will explore some opportunities to deliver industry presentations online.

As a result of this year's conference cancellation, we have transferred our event contract to new dates next year, and we are pleased to share that PacRim Stainless 2021 (including the Australian Industry Stainless Steel Supplier and Fabricator Awards) will be held on 20 and 21 October, 2021 at QT Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

We look forward to seeing you all on the other side, and brining our industry network back together to celebrate the innovation and excellence in Australian stainless steel supply, design and fabrication.
