Composites Europe and ACMA Expand Partnership

11 April 2012

Composites Europe and the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) plan to cooperate in developing a lecture programme and a series of Internet seminars to advance the exchange between the European and the American market.

According to REED, the conference programme starting in 2013 with the ACMA Composites trade show in Orlando (Florida), January 29-31, aims at providing US companies with an overview of the European market. They say the interactive webinars will further assist in this, as well as supply information for European companies regarding their opportunities in the US market.

In order to promote exchange between the markets, REED say the US Commercial Service, a unit of the US Department of Commerce, has included Composites Europe in its assistance programme: companies from the US exhibiting at Composites Europe are supported by an expert from the industry in their preparations for the trade show, advertising and during the trade show.

REED explain that a larger number of exhibitors from the US have already registered for participation in Composites Europe 2012, which will be held in Düsseldorf from 9th – 11th October, this year. They say that these include composite materials specialist Fiberforge, the McClean Anderson mechanical engineering company, prepreg manufacturer TCR Composites, cutting specialist Robbjack and software expert Vistagy.
