Composites UK will once again be sponsoring the Composites Engineering Show, playing a role in the dissemination activities for the event.
During the two days of the exhibition, Composites UK will be sponsoring the industry strategic briefing sessions, organising open forums over the two days to disseminate early success from the Composites Innovation Cluster (CiC) projects, showcasing UK excellence through the Industry Award Winners and hosting a ‘Composites 101’ tutorial session in collaboration with the Composites Skills Alliance aimed at those companies wanting to move into the composites industry.
The Strategic Briefing sessions, chaired by Chris Little, Chairman of Composites UK, will be held on Tuesday 12th November at 1pm and Wednesday 13th November at 12noon in Open Forum 4 and will focus on ‘Making the UK Composites Industry Work’ with presentations from Peter Chivers, CEO of National Composites Centre and Alison Starr, Chair of Composites Leadership Forum. The sessions will provide industry with crucial information on UK strategy development and how this will impact on their businesses.
The Composites UK Industry Awards Dinner is being held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Tuesday 12th November. Industry achievements will be celebrated, with winners being showcased in the features area on the exhibition show floor and a preview session on the Tuesday afternoon in Open Forum 3 at 3:30pm.
“The Composites Engineering Show has become the platform to showcase the UK’s composites industry,” says Dr Sue Halliwell, Operations Manager at Composites UK. “There have been major developments in the UK composites industry over the last 12 months and there are exciting projects now started with others in the pipeline.
