Composites Europe Meeting with Interest

13 January 2006

The composites trade planned for September, Composites Europe is said to be gaining profile and interest.

According to the organisers, Exel has committed itself to participating and is one of approximately 200 exhibitors expected at the trade fair with its accompanying forum, which is to take place in Essen from 20-22 September.

“Bookings from exhibitors show a positive picture throughout. We already have registrations from companies from the US, Great Britain and Germany”, says Britta Wirtz, Director of Composites Europe. The trade fair is profiting from the strong global sales network of its organisers Reed Exhibitions Deutschland GmbH, Wirtz continued. Sales groups have taken up work in the US, the Benelux states, France, Great Britain, Spain, India and Italy. Many exhibitors will present their companies as part of a country pavilion. The first booking for such an arrangement has already come in from the Netherlands.

The national associations within the European Composites Industry Association (EuCIA) have agreed to support the fair. As the co-organiser of the fair, EuCIA represents the interests of approximately 15,000 members of the European composites industry. “With Composites Europe, the association provides a forum for all its member companies to generate new business areas. It offers a unique possibility to publicise alternative technologies and materials“, says EuCIA President Volker Fritz.

Reinforced Plastics Magazine will also present a preview of the fair in its September 2006 issue.
