Following its postponement due to Hurricane Irma, CAMX will now be held on 12-14 December 2017 at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Florida, US.
Now in its fourth year, CAMX – the Composites and Advanced Materials Expo is co-produced by the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE).
"CAMX is proud to return to Florida this year, especially after the recent devastation that has impacted the region due to Hurricane Irma,“ says Heather Rhoderick, CAMX Show Director and Sr. Vice President of Events & Information, ACMA. "Our staff, volunteer leaders, and resilient partners in the Orlando Area are working hard to ensure a successful, well-attended event that showcases the very best our industry has to offer."
Details regarding registrations, exhibit booths and conference programming are pending, but will be announced in the coming weeks through CAMX's social media and website, as well as mail and email communication.
"This event is critical to the industry and completely cancelling was not an option,“ Gregg Balko, SAMPE CEO and Executive Director. "We are committed to delivering an excellent program and exhibition experience."
Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
A skateboard, architectural panels and a rigid roof for boats, all built using Chomarat composite reinforcements, will be on display at CAMX 2018.
The American Composites Manufacturers Association participated in a roundtable discussion about the IMAGINE Act. Known as the Innovative Materials in American Growth and Infrastructure, Newly Expanded (IMAGINE) Act, the new bill is designed to promote the increased use of innovative materials like fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, as well as new manufacturing methods to accelerate the deployment and extend the life of infrastructure projects.
