  2. 2. Welcome IMM Events would like to welcome you to the 6th year of the Annual Americas Iron Ore Conference to be hosted in Rio de Janeiro on November 11th and 12th at the Windsor Atlântica Hotel. IMM events for the iron ore industry – over a decade of history in providing world-class industry updates and discussions Americas Iron Ore complements our successful iron ore portfolio which includes the Global Iron Ore Steel event in Perth, the EU Iron Ore event in Berlin, London and Stockholm, and the Africa Iron Ore event in Cape Town. In the past year, the world’s iron ore industry has seen a very high level of uncertainty and volatility with prices fluctuating from a low of US$99 a tonne in September last year to a high of US$155 in February – so would the iron ore market pullback in the near future? Americas Iron Ore has become one of the most respected annual gatherings for North and South American iron ore markets and its agenda this year will examine the key market trends in 2014 and the implications of a slowing down of the Chinese economy; it will offer Vale’s analysis of the industry and an update of the 90mtpa Serra Sul expansion; it will assess the finance of new mining projects and the growth of floating prices. The November event also features a new extensive analysis of the steel markets in North America and in the Latin American countries and an in-depth scrutiny of the repercussions of the new regulation for the iron ore industry in Brazil on new projects and future production. In addition, delegates will be also able to review some of the current operations and projects in the region presented by Anglo American, Arcelor Mittal, Latin Resources, Alderon Iron Ore, Essar Americas and others. We invite you to go through the comprehensive agenda that IMM Events developed and that will assist you in understanding how the big picture issues influence the future iron ore market dynamics. We look forward to welcoming you in Rio.
