The detailed Global Composites conference program will be available online in April.

The robust conference program is designed for composites manufacturing executives, leaders, and our future leaders and will feature sessions on topics, including:

  • Global composites industry trends
    Learn where the growth opportunities are and how to expand your business in high growth areas around the world
  • Global composites technology trends
    Discover what’s hot in emerging materials and manufacturing technology from around the world
  • Building and leveraging global networks
    From supply chains to collaborative R&D, learn the intricacies of global networking and explore best practices to efficiently navigate most scenarios

The conference programme will focus on seven key areas with seven session topics:

  • Session 1: Materials
    Understand the latest developments and research transforming composite materials. Gain insights on positioning your company to take advantage of growth opportunities in various markets. Hear from industry experts as they discuss the latest developments and future outlook for composite materials.
  • Session 2: Opportunities
    The global composites industry is innovative and ever-evolving. As emerging technologies make their way to the marketplace, new opportunities and challenges are unveiled. Benefit from insights on the future of the composites industry. Learn how global composites companies are teaming up with local organizations and colleges to attract, train, and retain a skilled workforce. Hear how a composite branding campaign is working to raise awareness of composites with end users, specifiers, and designers, to ultimately increase the use of composite materials over other types of materials.
  • Session 3: Recycling & Sustainability
    With a greater worldwide push to reduce, reuse, recycle, and changing current and future environmental legislations surrounding waste management issues, the composites industry has seen itself come under greater pressure. Due to their inherent nature of heterogeneity, in particular for thermoset-based polymer composites, recycling has been a difficult subject for the industry to overcome. Further to this, with an end-user focus on generation and consumption of energy, composite materials are consistently being seen as the solution for development of energy efficiency as end-users strive to reduce the mass of their vehicles. Learn how government, industry bodies and companies are coming together to conquer the challenges and issues faced.
  • Session 4: Manufacturing and Automation
    At the heart of any manufacturing business is a process. With an end-user push for high-volume manufacturing and reduced cost across the supply chain, focus is on process improvements and developments as well as automation. Learn about the drivers leading this action and what manufacturers across the supply chain are doing to aid the improvements.
  • Session 5: Automotive
    Composites can offer huge advantages to the automotive sector including light-weighting and cost saving. Most importantly, these advanced materials can offer excellent crash performance when compared to other materials. Understand what the industry requirements are first hand, learn about the application drivers, and hear what the composites industry can do to meet the needs of the end-users.
  • Session 6: Aerospace 
    Through gradual substitution of metal components, we have seen a rise in the use of composites in aerospace applications. With a need for light-weighting, high-stiffness and strength and a resistance to fatigue, it is clear to see why this change is occurring. Hear the needs of the industry and help the composites industry to realize the solutions it can offer now and in the future.
  • Session 7: Construction and Infrastructure Sector Focus
    The construction and infrastructure sector is one of the largest growing markets for the composites industry. As the demand for green construction and reduced lifecycle costs grows, composites, known for their durability and good strength-to-weight ratio, are becoming the clear solution. Barriers to adoption of composites in infrastructure will be discussed along with the codes that are being developed to counter those barriers.
