The 58thFRP Conference & Exhibition, will take place the 24-25 October 2013 in Kanazawa Institute of Technology, in Komatsu, Japan. It is a good reflection of the trends of the Japanese composite market these past few years. This annual event organised by the Japan Reinforced Plastics Society (JRPS) welcomed between 150 and 200 composite professionals this year.
Other than the quality of the conferences, the high technical level of the subjects discussed highlighted the specificity of the market. The most represented sectors were transport (automotive and rolling stock) and building & construction. The first sector is booming while the second is producing considerable volumes.
The topical cross-disciplinary issue of recycling was discussed at great length.
CON-EX 2013 will be held from the 24-25 October 2013, in the Komatsu, Japan.
