NetComposites will be offering its initial advice and signposting service, "Ask the Expert", for the third year running at the Composites Engineering Show 2014, taking place on 11 - 12 November at the NEC, Birmingham, UK.
The 'Ask the Expert' session will take place over the two days of the exhibition from NetComposites' stand E131, and attendees are invited to visit the stand at any time during the show to ask any questions they have. NetComposites has a great network and is highly knowledgeable in a very broad range of world-leading innovations in composite materials and processes and is intimately involved with current news and future developments, meaning that they are well-placed to advise on materials, processes, market and technology trends.
Whilst drop-ins are welcome, NetComposites is also happy to arrange a meeting ahead of the show. Please call them on +44 (0)1246 266244 to arrange a time, or email email@example.com.
NetComposites will also be running composite technology forums during the show. Topics include thermoplastics, biocomposites, nanocomposites, automation and composites in construction. Please visit http://www.advancedengineeringuk.com/open-conference/or email firstname.lastname@example.org more information.
In addition to this, Composite Essentials, a series of seven stand-alone 45 minute training modules, will be presented throughout the day on the 11th November which are aimed at people who wish to gain an introduction to the composites industry, or to “top-up” their knowledge on a specific subject. More information can be found at – www.compositeessentials.co.uk. This training event takes place within the NEC, so is in a convenient location for attendees of the Advanced Engineering Show.
