NetComposites is pleased to announce the programme for the next edition of CompIC ME (Composites in Construction Middle East), an international conference taking place 14th - 15th February 2018 at the Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach, Dubai, UAE.
Sponsored by Scott Bader, the conference is being held amongst the composite flooded Dubai skyline, and will introduce and educate visitors on the current and future use of fibre reinforced composites in construction, detailing innovations and trends in architecture, smart, durable and cost effective buildings, modern day infrastructure, refurbishment and housing of the future.
The conference will close with a panel session which will question ‘Who do we think we are?’ Chaired by Julien Sellier of STRUCTeam, the panel session will look at the way the composites industry is portrayed by the construction industry, and how it can better market itself as an industry for this market.
Gemma Smith, Communications Manager at NetComposites, commented “I’m really looking forward to the return of CompIC ME. It will be great to see new projects and innovations that have arisen since we last met in 2016. I am particularly excited about the panel session and working with attendees to help promote our industry going forward.”
Registration for the event is open and exhibition and sponsorship packages are also available. Visit mecompositesin.construction to find out more.

When the concrete platform at a Billerica, Massachusetts, US, commuter rail station collapsed in 2015, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) closed its North and South mini-high handicap accessible platforms at its West Natick Station. The structures, built with ramps and elevated loading sections, make boarding easy for individuals with disabilities. MBTA needed a high-performance, corrosion-resistant replacement for the structures and selected Composite Advantage’s fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) deck panels.
