After its successful first in Essen last year, Composites Europe is preparing its second event from 6 to 8 November 2007 in Stuttgart.
The trade fair with accompanying forum is the biggest B2B platform for composite materials in Germany, which is Europe’s biggest composite market.
Focus at this trade fair will be on composite fibre materials which, as materials holding considerable promise for the future, are used in vehicle construction, aerospace technology and in the building sector and the electronics industry in particular. The fair will display the entire value creation chain of the composites industry – from the raw material to semi-finished products, finished and intermediate products to processing technology and services. Even at this early stage, Composites Europe has already developed into Germany’s biggest trade fair for the composites industry.
Being held at the premises of Neue Messe Stuttgart, Composites Europe will be close to the market. In the heart of the high-tech region Baden-Wurttemberg and in a central location in one of Europe’s largest economic areas, the trade fair reaches the leading application industries. World leaders in the automotive, mechanical engineering and electrical industries as well as the aerospace industry are in the immediate vicinity.
