Industry leaders from all over the world will come to Dallas to collaborate, learn and display products at CAMX.

ACMA has teamed up with the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) to produce the second annual Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX) – the biggest and most comprehensive event in North America for the composites industry – in Dallas from Oct. 26-29. This year, CAMX expects to feature around 550 exhibitors and 300 conference sessions.

“CAMX is a big opportunity to unite composites professionals from all over the world and provide them with the resources they need,” says ACMA president Tom Dobbins. “Through product displays, live manufacturing demonstrations and a robust conference program, we believe attendees will come away from CAMX with the tools necessary to continue driving innovation in our industry.”

SAMPE CEO Gregg Balko adds that CAMX participants also want an event where they can see the future of our industry and meet with other key decision makers who will help shape that future. “Last year at our inaugural CAMX, over 7,100 composites and advanced material practitioners from 44 countries came to CAMX to discover new industry developments, develop industry skills and grow business opportunities,” says Balko. “CAMX will continue to grow as the venue in North America to network with the critical players in the composite industry.”

One company that benefited from the business opportunities at CAMX and saw its business improve was Global Composites. “CAMX allows us to not only meet new potential customers, but also meet new suppliers and current suppliers in a social and business atmosphere to discuss new, unique products which help us to produce in a more efficient manner,” says Gary Beck, president of Global Composites. “Even if you don’t pick up a new customer, the exposure to what is going on in other parts of the country can kick start your management team into thinking what might be possible.”
