Composites Europe will conduct guided tours of the show floor focusing on wind energy opportunities.

Event organisers explain this year’s Composites Europe, which will host more than 400 exhibitors from 25 countries in Düsseldorf, Germany from 7-9 October, will focus on solutions for the wind energy sector. New materials, automated manufacturing processes as well as repair and maintenance services will play central roles.

The organiser's state this year’s Composites Europe will provide quick and targeted access to the latest developments, particularly for manufacturers and operators of wind power plants. With the motto “Wind Energy Meets Composites”, guided tours of the show floor, organised in cooperation with OMWINDENERGY, will take place at 10:30 am and 1:00 pm on 8 October. The 90-minute tours will present opportunities for background discussions with associations and corporations along with insights into the manufacturing process. A noontime networking reception at the Composites VIP Lounge will provide a venue for talks and an exchange of experiences among industry participants.

According to organisers the exhibition tour will make stops at these locations, among others:

  • Dow: new line of adhesives for resilient wind turbine blades
