Both partners are trade organization experts in their sectors, sharing the same philosophy and missions. They are fully committed to their industries providing high value information products. The strength of this strategic event is the complementarity between specialty fabrics/composites value chain-material producers, equipment manufacturers, end-product manufacturers and composite users. IFAI Expo Americas 2012 will also mark the association's 100th anniversary, promising a festive celebration.
