SAMPE UK & Ireland Chapter's next annual seminar will take place on 23 February 2017 at Cranfield University.
The theme of the Seminar is: Maximising Composite Value by Innovation.
The format of the event will be as recent years: a one day event with high quality invited presentations coupled with a table top exhibition.
Registrations can now be made on the Cranfield University’s on-line store.
The exhibition will be limited to 20 tables. Thanks to generous sponsorship from Formaplex, Hexcel and Shape Machining, 15 tables are being offered free to SME's based in UK and Ireland.
There will be a charge of £350 plus VAT for Larger and Overseas companies to exhibit and these companies are asked to book via the Cranfield University on line shop, details above.
UK/Ireland SME's wishing to apply for a free place should contact Trevor Cook.
Each exhibition booking includes one registration for the seminar.
If an exhibitor requires further seminar registrations, they should be booked via the online shop.
If an exhibitor requires staff to assist with the exhibition table only and not attend the seminar, please advise Trevor Cook of their names. There will be no charge for these people.
