2020 Highlights

It feels a bit odd calling this year’s special December issue ‘Highlights’, because of the strange year we have all experienced!

However, if this year has taught us anything, it is that we need to take joy from the little things and so, we have gathered together the most popular articles and news stories from the past year and wrapped them altogether neatly for you to enjoy...just minus the Christmas bow!

As this time of year is also one to take some time to reflect, I

would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all of our advertisers and readers for your continued support. We know it has not been easy for everyone and across the Aluminium International Today portfolio, we have worked to try and keep you up-to-date with as much industry news as possible, through digital issues, webinars and even an online version of the Future Aluminium Forum.

We will continue to offer these new, digital platforms as we head in to 2021, but we also hope we can get back to a world with live B2B events and face-to-face networking!

In the meantime, please keep an eye on www.aluminiumtoday.com for details on how you can make the most out of our online content and also let us know if there are any other ways we can work to help keep the sector connected.

This just leaves me to say that I hope you enjoy this issue and

thank you again. I hope you and your families stay safe and well and wish you a Happy New Year...whatever it brings!
