2nd International Composites Congress (ICC)

Following the success of the 1st International Composites Congress at the previous Composites Europe in Stuttgart, the industry association Composites Germany will once again host its congress as the trade fair kick-off event, this time on 28 and 29 November 2016 in Düsseldorf. This year’s partner country Japan will be represented by a number of exclusive speakers.

Taking place with the tagline Composites – On the path to becoming a key industry, the congress will feature more than 30 international presenters exploring the latest trends and developments in the fibre-reinforced plastics/composites segment of the industry.

New applications and technologies along with a comprehensive overview of market developments in Europe and worldwide will reveal that composites play a more and more significant role in lightweight engineering.

Composites Europe

Composites Europe, the European Trade Fair and Forum for Composites, Technology and Applications, will take place in Düsseldorf later this year. The trade fair will showcase the full range of fibre-reinforced plastics, from raw materials to processing methods to lightweight construction innovations in automotive engineering, aerospace, boatbuilding, wind energy and construction.

Composites Europe is organised by trade fair organiser Reed Exhibitions in cooperation with the European industry association EuCIA and the trade association Composites Germany, a coalition whose members include the industry associations and clusters AVK, CCeV, CFK-Valley Stade and the VDMA Working Group Hybrid Lightweight Technologies.
