Key influencers in the UK architecture and construction media industry have voiced their support for Materials 2017 – the new conference and exhibition coming to London, UK, next month on the 25-26 April.
James Parker, Editor of Architects’ Datafile, said about the event, “Materials 2017 brings together a powerful line-up of thought leaders and an interesting selection of manufacturers to offer a focused event for architects. At a time when the proposition offered by broad-based industry events is being challenged, a niche event which discusses materials in depth presents a strong case for visitors to attend. As a leading monthly title for architects, ADF is very happy to be partnering with the event for 2017 and beyond.“
Premier Construction Editor, Alex Wiggan, said, “We are delighted to be partnering with Materials 2017 for this fantastic event. As the first conference and exhibition focused on materials for architecture, construction and design, Materials 2017 will be a real showcase for all the great work currently taking place throughout the UK and, more importantly, all the materials that make those projects great!”
Materials 2017 is also delighted to announce partnerships with RIBA Journal, NetComposites, Refurb Projects, BusinessNET Explorer, and M&MT magazine.
Show organisers, netMAGmedia, explain that this highly focused and intimate event will provide just the right climate for those involved in design and specification for the built environment, whether new-build or renovation, to find out more about the companies who are pushing the boundaries of possibility when it comes to material specification.
Composites UK reports that its members are supporting the new 2018-2021 Safety in Manufacturing Plastics and Composites strategy (SIMPLC).
Composites are considered hard to join and researchers have predominantly focused on mechanical joining technologies including crimping, gluing, riveting or screwing. The Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November will show the advantages and drawbacks of each of these processes.
The Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) and the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) at RWTH Aachen University are commencing a study into the use of thermoplastic tapes in injection moulded parts. Companies interested in joining the study are invited to a kick-off event during Fakuma 2018 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 18 October.
