More than 400 exhibitors from 25 nations – many international key players among them – are expected to present new lightweight construction concepts, materials, and the latest production and automation solutions at the ninth edition of Composites Europe. A total of 10,000 lightweight construction experts representing automotive engineering, aviation and boatbuilding as well as the wind energy and construction sectors are expected at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre, a third of them from outside Germany. Not for nothing: the international industry considers Composites Europe the most important event in the German market – the largest composites market in Europe. Solidly booked country pavilions representing Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, China and Hungary further underscore how important the trade fair has become for the international composites sector.
Trade fair and forums to focus on high-volume manufacturing processes
Devising and optimising processes that enable high-volume manufacturing of composites components remains the biggest challenge for the industry. At Composites Europe, the industry will present suitable production and processing methods, innovative materials and current lightweight construction projects. Additionally, the trade fair highlights new ideas at the Composites Forum and in special areas, including the Product Demonstration Area, the new "Industry meets Science" area and the "Bio-based Pavilion".
