Advanced Engineering has also announced a competition for exhibitors, offering prizes for those bringing the most visitors to the 2017 show. The two winning exhibitors will receive a free 6 m2 stand at the 2018 show and a free full-page advert in the 2018 show guide.
“The composites industry is growing at a fantastic rate, and the Composites Engineering zone is the place to be to see the latest technological developments," says Alison Willis, Industrial Divisional Director at Easyfairs, the organiser of Advanced Engineering. "These are revolutionising a raft of markets, from planes, trains and automobiles, through to oil and gas, benefitting millions of people worldwide who consume these products – which means practically everyone on the planet! And the industry shows no sign of slowing down. This year, as in previous years, we will welcome thousands of visitors and exhibitors whose businesses are in composites.”
The Composites Engineering Show is one of five zones of Advanced Engineering 2017, which takes place on the 1-2 November at the NEC, Birmingham. The event includes four other co-located zones under one roof: Aero Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Performance Metals Engineering and, new for 2017, Connected Manufacturing, which focuses on Industry 4.0.
