Composites Engineering/ Advanced Materials Forum

The rise of composite materials continues across an ever-increasing number of applications. The advances provided by composite materials within automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, construction and oil and gas, to name just a few, are revolutionising businesses and benefiting millions of people. With the industry showing no signs of slowing down, the Composites Engineering show has already established itself as one of the world’s most important composite raw material, design, processing and applications events.

Please note, as with all live events, the conference programme is subject to change.

We’re continuously confirming new speakers, so you can plan your day more effectively, check back next week for the most up-to-date programme
