This unique event will :

  •  Highlight and showcase why composites offer benefits and opportunities through innovation
  •  Engage business discussions through a unique networking approach and Business meetings
  •  Attract experts from a variety of fields to give a broad overview (architects, engineers, composite manufacturers, material suppliers, code/fire experts, environmental engineers, etc.)
  •  Provide conference sessions covering a series of subjects highlighting a wide variety of technical developments (light-weighting, design flexibility, fire safety, building codes, manufacturing, etc.), and invite key groups to head discussions
  •  Create the framework for collaborative research and development to target critical impediments that are currently limiting composite uptake (fire, cost, material supply, codes, etc.)
