The 11th edition of Compotec “Hi-tech Composites Solutions“, scheduled in Marina di Carrara from 3 to 5 April 2019, conceived and organised by I.M.M./CarraraFiere, is the only trade show in Italy dedicated to the composite materials industry and to their multiple applications. The event takes place at the same time as the 17th edition of Seatec, International Exhibition of Technology, Subcontracting and Design for boats, yachts and ships, with the aim of bringing together producers, distributors, universities and research institutes, bodies and associations in a single exhibition context in order to provide companies in the various sectors involved with the highest professional, promotional and business tools.
Following the evolution of the sector, the 2019 event represents an important opportunity to innovate and enrich a unique format in the Italian exhibitions scene, totally dedicated to composite materials.
For the 2019 edition of Compotec, a series of new areas and opportunities have been created, whose goal is to consolidate the leading role of the event in the framework of the fairs dedicated to advanced composites.
To achieve this renewal, 6 Business Clusters have been identified to represent at best the operating sectors of the companies exhibiting at Compotec 2019, as well as new topics that will allow to expand the variety of products on display, and consequently the types and numbers of visitors to the B2B event.
COMPOTEC BUSINESS CLUSTERS are as follows.
- NAUTICAL AND NAVAL
The use of advanced composites for the sea, for pleasure crafts, for sailing and motor-racing sports and in various applications for shipping.
- DEFENSE AND AEROSPACE
The hardness and lightness of composite materials for the protection and efficiency of military vehicles and for civil aviation.
- AUTOMOTIVE AND LEISURE
Applications in sports and racing cars, in motorcycles, in sports equipment, from the world of skiing to that of bicycles.
Prosthetics, braces and structures in the orthopedic field and orthodontic fields
Consolidations and structural reinforcements with Fibre Reinforced Polymers in structures made of cement, brickwork, wood and CRP (carbon reinforced plastic).
- THE RECYCLING SUPPLY CHAIN
Regenerated materials derived from the recycling chains of plastic, paper and cardboard, carbon fibre, water, ferrous materials, aluminum, spent oils and prospects for use in the industry, tangible paths of innovation from a circular-economy point of view to increase environmental sustainability.
Alongside the Business Clusters, Compotec 2019 continues to consolidate further activities interwoven across the Business Clusters:
The display of products of excellence in the more classic sense of the “product trade fair”, showing number of opportunities and services for the boating industry.
The always appreciated B2B meetings among Exhibitors and international buyers from Europe, the Americas and Asia, selected by the fair organisers with the support of Italian Trade Agency.
A series of professional training activities with assignment of Professional Training Credits for engineers, started last year with Compotec Academy, will further enrich and specialise the 2019 edition.
Since its beginnings, conferencing has been a distinctive feature of Compotec, which has always offered high-tech contents and deals with issues related to the new dynamics of the composite materials market.
Awards and prizes for products and systems presented by the exhibiting companies.
This extensive offer of in-depth opportunities is unique in the framework of technical fairs in Europe and represents a new value offered by the event to its visitors, in particular to all the professionals of the sector who can thus significantly enrich their informative and technical background.
Compotec will take place at CarraraFiere Exhibition Centre, Marina di Carrara, Italy, from 3 to 5 April 2019.
