The industry's leading event IFAI Expo 2018 will take place in Dallas, TX, from 15-18 October and will be co-located with CAMX.
"The goal of this co-location is to expand the relationship between the technical textiles and composites industries for our attendees and exhibitors," said Andrew Aho, Vice President of New Business Development. “We want to capitalise on the current synergy between these industries, and promote future collaboration.”
IFAI Expo is the premier industrial fabrics expo for new and innovative products, as well as education and networking with experts and influential industry leaders. CAMX is North America's go-to composites event for products, solutions, networking and advanced industry thinking.
The co-location of events unites the strengths of both groups – combining all aspects of these world-class industry expos, and allows for machining products to be highlighted to the attendees of both expos.
CAMX, co-produced by the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE), has seen substantial growth since its launch in 2014. "We are pleased to be able to offer the CAMX attendees access to a new set of exhibitors that are of interest to them, without having to attend a separate event," said Heather Rhoderick, CAMX Show Director.
Next year, with the co-location, attendees and exhibitors will benefit from expanded networking and sharing among the impressive national and international audiences that IFAI and CAMX attract, plus new innovations and exhibits related to both events. While the exhibit halls of both events will be combined, the conference programming and registration of the two events remain separate.
