The premier composites conference and trade show in North America will feature speakers and exhibitors from all over the world
October 22, 2015 (Dallas, Texas) – Next week, from Oct. 26-29, 2015, composites and advanced materials industry leaders will gather in Dallas for the second annual Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX). This year’s Exhibit Hall features nearly 550 exhibiting companies, representing 20 countries and five continents. Fifteen percent are from companies located outside of the United States.
The growth in international exhibitors is due to the inclusion of international pavilions and booths at CAMX. Among them are pavilions from COMPOSITES Europe, China, and South Africa, as well as a booth representing business opportunities in England. The Chinese pavilion and the South African pavilion feature ten composites companies from a wide range of markets including infrastructure, aerospace, industrial, wind energy, automotive, maritime and pipe and vessels. South Africa is using CAMX as an opportunity to network and build Foreign Direct Investment in their composites industry.
“The fact that composites professionals from more than 20 countries will be exhibiting at CAMX is a testament to the rapid worldwide growth of our industry,” says ACMA President Tom Dobbins.
There are 19 international speakers presenting as part of the CAMX Conference Program. Some featured sessions this year include the University of Tokyo professor Jun Takahashi’s session on high-speed automation in the automotive industry and insights on offshore market applications by Professor Andreas Echtermeyer of the Norwegian University of Science & Technology. In total, delegates from over 40 countries are attending CAMX.
“CAMX attendees will enhance their global perspective by seeing products and hearing insights from colleagues from all over the world,” says SAMPE CEO Gregg Balko. “Global visibility and insight is essential for growing business and advancing the industry both domestically and internationally.”
CAMX was created by the American Composites Manufactures Association (ACMA) and the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) and is an all-encompassing event, bringing together the high-volume/low-cost and low-volume/high-performance industries.
