‘Leading Edge Events & Media will host a brand new show, ‘The Composites Engineering Show 2010’ to service the UK’s rapidly developing composites design & production engineering community across all applications.
The show will run on 29-30 September 2010, alongside the ‘Aero Engineering 2010 Exhibition & Congress’
“The response to the co-location in both value chains has been outstanding and we expect a high take up from visitor groups for both shows nationwide” says Event Director Ian Stone, Managing Director of organisers Leading Edge Events & Media.
Building on the success of the inaugural ‘Aero Engineering’ (2009) event in Manchester, where some 800+ companies & organisations throughout the UK aerospace engineering supply chain participated, Aero Engineering 2010, in its new central UK location expects to attract engineering teams from all sides of the UK aerospace industry.
Running concurrently on the same show floor, The Composites Engineering Show 2010 reflects the enormous UK-wide demand in composites design & manufacturing, from high volume consumer applications to high performance advanced engineered products. This importance is reflected in the show’s support from key stakeholder organisations including CompositesUK, NetComposites, Knowledge Transfer Network and others
Ian Stone, Event Director said “....the continuing thirst for information & partnerships for UK companies wishing to work with composites or from those already part of the composites value chain, spurred us to launching the UK’s first dedicated showcase for the composites community, mirroring the importance – and growing use - of these advanced materials across all industry sectors, from the obviously synergetic aerospace to motorsport, renewable energy, medical, industrial equipment, automotive and more, and reflecting the Government’s recent £22 million endorsement of composites development”.
Exhibits and technical presentations at the new Composites Engineering Show will cover all composites types, including fibre reinforced polymers, sandwich and cored structures, fibre metal laminates, metal matrix, ceramic matrix and carbon composites. The event showcases materials manufacturers and suppliers; design, analysis and simulation technologies; processors/processes and production technologies, including machining and tooling; suppliers of composite parts, components and structures; and composites maintenance engineering.
Ian Stone concludes “The combination of multiple advanced engineering groups meeting across the two shows provides infinite opportunities for technology transfer & supply chain networking and will cement both shows into the UK industry’s ‘must attend’ calendar.
