COMPOTEC 2017: The new frontier of composites

Now in its 9th edition, the International Exhibition of Composites and Related Technologies, the only trade event in Italy dedicated to the industry of composite materials, opens to ever wider fields of application thanks to the implementation of new technologies and to the excellent mechanical properties of composites as for weight, durability and versatility.
The event addresses all industrial sectors that use composite materials, from sailing to aerospace, but also including aeronautical, military, automotive, medical and design sectors, with the aim of bringing together in a single trade show manufacturers, distributors, universities, research institutes, associations and organizations, to provide companies a highly professional tool of promotion. The last edition of Compotec recorded the presence of 107 brands, 38 of them foreign, confirming the value of the fair as a reference event for the entire Mediterranean region.

See below the highlights of the next edition!


Compotec 2017 will be held from March 29 to 31, as usual simultaneously with Seatec, the International Exhibition of Technology Subcontracting and Design for boats, yachts and ships.


Since its beginnings, Compotec has always strongly encouraged and given relief to companies that produce and operate with the maximum respect for the environment, taking into account that boating is, itself, an activity that maximally needs the quality of the territory. “Green” companies will be therefore given special visibility and a “Greentec” award will be established as a recognition to the best product and environmentally friendly process.


In addition to the products display, Compotec 2017 will be characterised by the organisation of an incoming of foreign buyers from strategic areas, all of them working in the many industrial sectors that make use of composites. The initiative aims at planning an intensive agenda of Business-to-Business meetings (B2B) with Compotec exhibitors, whose commitment to the project is free and represents an additional concrete opportunity to make business. Thanks to the presence and to the collaboration with prestigious Italian universities and research institutes, Exhibitors will also have the chance to attend a programme of Research-to-Business meetings (R2B), designed to facilitate the transfer of knowledge between the academic sector and the world of business.


To complete the technical profile of the event, Compotec 2017 offers a full calendar of conferences and seminars on topics that cover various industries’ domains. The training, carried out in cooperation with qualified partners, represents an important opportunity for the exchange of know-how and for the technical upgrading of all professionals in the sector, subject to continuing education. Attendance at some of these meetings will ensure the attribution of Professional Course Credits(CFP).
