FRP Composites in Sport, an event looking at the use of fibre reinforced polymers in sporting applications, took place at The Studio, Birmingham on 19th July 2012.
The event, run by the NetComposites’ Insight Group looked at how composites are changing sports equipment for the better and how they will be utilised in the upcoming 2012 London Olympics.
Brendon Weager, Managing Director of Composites Evolution and also a speaker at the event said, “FRP Composites in Sport was a really useful and informative event. The presentations covered a diverse range of topics and provoked some interesting discussion points. I also made some good connections with potential customers and suppliers.”
The next event from the NetComposites’ Insight Group will be the FRP Bridges 2012 conference – a 2 day, London based event on 13 – 14th September 2012. More details on this can be found at http://www.frpbridges.com
