On 7th November 2012 at the Crowne Plaza, NEC, Birmingham, Composites UK, the official trade association for the UK composites industry, is celebrating the achievements of UK composites companies at the Innovation Awards Dinner 2012 to coincide with the Composites Engineering Show (7th – 8th November, 2012).
Chris Little, Chairman of Composites UK said “The UK Composites industry is at the forefront of technological development and exciting product application both at home and overseas. In an ever-increasingly competitive environment it is important to celebrate our successes. As such the Composites UK awards will showcase some of the key advances made by UK companies over the last 12 months.”
According to Composites UK, the three innovation awards for materials, design and manufacture will be presented at the event. The winners will also be invited to promote their entries in the Composites UK Showcase Area at the Composites Engineering Show over the two days of the exhibition.
Composites UK says this new event is set to become the premier awards dinner for the UK composites industry and has already sold over three quarters of the available tickets only two weeks’ after its formal announcement. Claire Whysall, Event and Membership Coordinator for Composites UK and organiser added that “the response to the dinner has been absolutely fantastic. It’s really encouraging to see so many companies wanting to celebrate with us and support the UK industry. It will certainly be a good forum for promoting company success stories.”
