Reed Exhibitions, the organiser of COMPOSITES EUROPE, and ACMA, the world's largest composites industry association, plan to cooperate in developing a conference programme and a series of webinars. The conference programme starts in 2013 at the ACMA's trade show in Orlando, Florida, on 29-31 January, which will provide US companies with an overview of the European market. The webinars will further assist in this, as well as supply information to European companies regarding opportunities in the US market.
The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) has been a partner of COMPOSITES EUROPE since 2011.
Assistance for US exhibitors
The US Commercial Service, a unit of the US Department of Commerce, has also included COMPOSITES EUROPE in its assistance programme. US companies exhibiting at COMPOSITES EUROPE are supported by an expert from the industry in their preparation for the trade show and during the show. A larger number of exhibitors from the US have already registered for COMPOSITES EUROPE 2012, which will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany, on 9-11 October. These include Fiberforge, McClean Anderson, TCR Composites, Robbjack, and VISTAGY.
COMPOSITES EUROPE 2012 will be co-located with the 2102 ALUMINIUM World Fair.
COMPOSITES EUROPE is organised by Reed Exhibitions in cooperation with the European Composites Industry Association (EuCIA), the VDMA Forum Composite Technology, the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA), international trade magazine Reinforced Plastics, and the German Federation of Reinforced Plastics (AVK).
