ACMA and SAMPE Announce CAMX

The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and the Society for the Advancement of Material Process Engineering (SAMPE) recently introduced CAMX—The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo. This new conference and exposition, co-produced by the two associations, will serve the advanced materials and composites industry. Taking place October 13-16 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., CAMX replaces both ACMA and SAMPE’s annual shows: ACMA’s Composites and the SAMPE Conference and Exhibition.

The organizations intend for CAMX to be the one source for connecting and advancing all aspects of the world’s composites and advanced materials communities: R&D, engineering, manufacturing, service providers and end users. The event includes a technical conference program; a marketplace for business opportunities, product displays and demonstrations; and access to professionals within the composites, advanced materials, and end use markets. The conference program will take place October 13-14, and an exhibit hall will be open October 14-16. The event is reportedly expected to attract over 8,500 attendees and more than 500 exhibitors.

“Attendees and exhibitors are looking for new business contacts and ways to use new materials and processes to better meet their customer demand,” said Tom Dobbins, president of ACMA. “CAMX will provide all those involved in the composites and advanced materials product stream with the best place in the Americas to do this.”

“Responses from our exhibitors have been phenomenal,” said Gregg Balko, executive director of SAMPE. “Since announcing this joint event, exhibitors have demonstrated amazing support, even without full details, by booking space in numbers that have exceeded our expectations.”
