2020 will see the return of Compotec “Hi-tech Composites Solutions”, the IMM CarraraFiere technical hub dedicated to advanced composites and their multiple applications. The exhibition is the only event in Italy for the sector whose aim is to bring together manufacturers, distributors, universities, research institutes, institutions and associations and to provid companies in the various sectors with professional promotion and business tools.
The 12th edition is due to be held in Carrara from 5 to 7 February 2020 together with Seatec, the exhibition of technology, components, design and subcontracting for recreational boating. The organisers are currently looking at all the various opportunities to give it a new innovative format that will also involve cooperation agreements with prestigious research bodies to expand both the range of goods on show and the specialised visitors. According to this new format, soon to be defined, in addition to the usual focus on composites for the marine industry, both sailing and motor boats, Compotec 2020 will be developing in particular mechanics and engineering sectors, for applications in sports and racing cars and motorcycles, and the biomedical sector for prostheses, braces and aids in orthopaedics and orthodontics.
The new sectors will of course be accompanied by the strengths that have characterised the event for 12 years:
B2B Meetings – The long-standing and consolidated relationship between the ICE Agenzia and the Compotec team is renewed for 2020 to bring an increasingly large number of top foreign buyers from Europe and America to the exhibition. Buyers will carry out targeted B2B meetings with exhibitors at the exhibition in the context of an increasingly essential internalisation and in view of increasingly globalised activities in the sector.
The Academy –
The vocational training activities of the Seatec Compotec Academy that further enrich and specialise Compotec. To enhance interest and participation, the subject areas will be carefully agreed and coordinated with the companies and once again will constitute an opportunity to issue CFP (Professional Educational Credits) for engineers and architects, in collaboration with the respective Professional Associations of the Province of Massa Carrara.
Themed workshops –
Compotec has always offered high-tech content and addresses issues related to the new dynamics of the composites market. Compotec 2020 will look closely at the increasingly pressing issue of recycling materials that feed and support the circular economy to ensure better quality of the environment. We promise to get back to you soon about all the latest developments. In the meantime, we thank you for your kind attention.
