About PacRim Stainless

Brought to you by the Australian Stainless Steel Development Association (ASSDA), PacRim Stainless is the premier annual event bringing together Australia's stainless steel industry and colleagues from abroad in an exclusive networking environment.


Sustainability, disruptive technology, population growth and urbanisation are just some of the global mega trends shaping our world. A shift towards a circular economy and using design and materials selection as a force for positive change to innovate and reduce our carbon footprint is evident. 

Stainless steel is the material of the future. It has low embodied energy over the life of our products, 100% recyclability with very high recycling efficiency and recycling rates, and of course, exceptional performance in service. The opportunities for stainless steel are everywhere, but what of the challenges? What role does stainless steel play in the circular economy? How can we optimise the use of technology and stainless steel to ensure its benefits are adopted and widely understood?

The future is now. PacRim Stainless 2023 will bring together an exceptional line-up of speakers and topics to discuss:

  • Local and global stainless steel trends, outlooks and challenges

  • Sustainable design and the clean energy evolution

  • New and disruptive technologies and digital tools

  • Next generation leadership

  • Case studies: Innovation and life-cycle assessment

Delegates can expect to learn and be inspired from our high-profile speakers, and the conference social events will offer unparalleled networking opportunities.


Join ASSDA in celebrating its 28th National Conference and 17th International Forum focusing on the Asia-Pacific region.
