SEPTEMBER 2018 28 CompositesWorld ยป Composites professionals from North America and a significant number from the global composites community have already marked their datebooks for the upcoming CAMX 2018 event. e Composites and Advanced Materials Expo, which will be held Oct. 15-18, 2018 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX, US, is co-produced by the American Composites Manufacturers Assn. (ACMA, Arlington, VA, US) and the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE, Diamond Bar, CA, US). e CAMX conference program is taking shape, and invaluable opportunities for networking and collaboration await. is year, CAMX will co-locate with the Industrial Fabrics Association International's (IFAI, Roseville, MN, US) IFAI Expo 2018. e pairing is a naturally good fit: CAMX is North America's go-to composites event for products, solutions and networking and IFAI Expo is the premier expo for new and innovative products in the field of industrial fabrics, key components of many composites. Attendees and exhibitors will benefit from expanded networking and sharing among the impressive national and international audiences that CAMX and IFAI attract. Because new innovations presented by exhibitors will often be of interest to attendees at both events, the exhibit halls for the shows will be combined, but the conference programming and registration for the two events will remain separate. "e goal of this co-location is to expand the relationship between the technical textiles and composites industries for our attendees and exhibitors," says Andrew Aho, IFAI's VP of new business development. "We want to capitalize on the current synergy between these industries and promote future collaboration." CAMX 2018 Preview CAMX combines forces with IFAI for a big Texas event.
