Improving performance and lowering costs through innovative uses of composite materials will be the focus of the Construction, Corrosion and Infrastructure Conference to be held from April 29 – May 1 in Las Vegas.
Geared for manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and engineers, the conference will cover technical properties and advantages of composites in lean manufacturing, ""being green,” and how the next generation of composites can compete against traditional materials to lower costs.
The Construction, Corrosion and Infrastructure Conference: Green Lean and Sustainable Developments is intended to provide a strategic and tactical view to help composite professionals and engineers improve performance and lower costs in these important markets. It includes education sessions from ACMA and The National Association of Corrosion Engineers International (NACE), as well as exhibits focused on the latest “green” solutions and networking opportunities.
“With increased need for corrosion resistant products and viable solutions to our nation’s crumbling infrastructure, this conference will give manufacturers and engineers the practical information about innovative composites technologies so they can make informed product decisions,” said Mathew Parmental, Senior Accounts Manager, Ashland Distribution, Santa Ana, Calif., who serves as the conference chairman. “The speakers, presentations and exhibits will focus on green and sustainable products and processes that will help meet today’s economic and environmental challenges.”
In his keynote presentation, ""The Outlook for Composites in Construction, Corrosion & Infrastructure During and After the U.S. Recession,"" well-known composites consultant Ray MacNeil will provide economic analysis and information specific to these market segments. He'll make the business case for composites and why composites fabricators can be optimistic in 2010 and beyond.
The MIA is delighted to support ‘Composites in Motorsport’, a 2-day conference organised by NetComposites, which will look at the innovative use of composites within our industry and future applications of composite solutions within motorsport.
