The first Aluminium Symposium was organized in 1994 jointly by the Turkish Aluminium Industrialists Association, Eti Aluminium Co. and the Chamber of Metallurgical Engineers at the Seydişehir Eti Aluminium Plant. The second symposium was held in collaboration with the same associations again at Seydişehir. After the privatization of Eti Aluminium Co., Aluminium Symposiums have been organised in İstanbul by the Turkish Aluminium Industrialists Association, TUBITAK Marmara Research Center and Chamber of Metallurgical Engineers.

In 2009, Hannover Messe Ankiros Fair Inc., the organizer of the ALUEXPO International Aluminium Technologies, Machinery and Products Trade Fair, joined the partnership and the symposium was organized concurrently with the fair.

In the following years the partnership with the ALUEXPO continued and the symposia were very well-received by the visitors and participants.
