CAMX 2017 proved growth of composite industry

Postponed to December due to Hurricane Irma, CAMX 2017 or The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo, brought together over 6,500 people.

Nearly tenth part of attendees made CAMX 2017 their first CAMX. For three days composite industry professionals, their would-be customers and scientists investigated innovations from the huge number of industries: aerospace, automotive, construction, 3-D printing, marine, wind energy, recycling, commodities, etc. Nearly 85% of exhibitors confirmed their attendance on the new dates and came to Orlando, Florida.

This year the exhibition hall also featured Innovation Park, a new show floor enhancement that created opportunities for networking and making new connections. CAMX 2017 attendees could also discuss current issues during the conference where over 250 speakers made presentations at 361 sessions. Broadcast online, the general conference session was dedicated to the revolutionary changes that composites bring to the traditional industries. CAMX has made conference presentations available on the website.

On the exhibition opening day, the winners of the Awards for Composites Excellence, whose sponsor is Composites One, were announced. ACE is a prestigious composites industry competition that recognises outstanding achievement and innovation in technology, manufacturing and product development. The finalists 2017 included Shape Corp., which offered the manufacture of curved composite profiles using pultrusion technology. They use various natural fibers, including basalt fiber as a reinforcing material.
