Additionally, companies, organizations and ACMA hold meetings from January 38 – February 1, 2013.

COMPOSITES distinguishes itself from other events by focusing on the business of composites and provides the primary forum for business to understand the applications and impact of new research and technology. Drawing attendees from over 650 companies and 40 countries, COMPOSITES connects top industry business leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators, universities and policy makers to all composites market segments and components of the value chain.

“COMPOSITES is all about showcasing the diversity of composites and providing the business opportunities and education for those involved with composites,” says ACMA Chief Executive Tom Dobbins. “Its unparalleled range of educational sessions provide attendees with real-life solutions that they can take back to the office, and the Exhibit Hall gives participants the opportunity to make the right connections with the right people at the right time. COMPOSITES showcases everything from traditional to high end materials, products and equipment as well as spotlighting technological advances, upgraded operational efficiencies, “green” trends and emerging market opportunities such as automotive.”

COMPOSITES offers both ACMA member and nonmember rates, as well as special rates for academia and government. Attendees can register for an all-access “full conference” registration, Exhibit Hall only or a “show sampler” which provides access to three education sessions, the Exhibit Hall, two General Sessions and the Opening Welcome Reception.

Backed by more than three decades of experience, innovation and responsiveness to participants, COMPOSITES has a proven track record of results for attendees and exhibitors. With attendee registration up over 25% the past four years, COMPOSITES continues to demonstrate its relevance for all those involved with composite materials.

The COMPOSITES “Early Bird” registration rates are available through January 4, 2013. Housing is also open and exhibit and sponsor opportunities are still available. For more information, visit
