Successful Start of Composites Europe
The focus of the new European Trade Fair for Composites, Technology and Applications - Composites Europe - was on fibre composite materials. On 6000 sqm on exhibition space, 200 exhibitors from all over Europe as well as overseas presented the entire spectrum of the composites industry, from the raw materials to processing technology and practical applications.
Of the total 3700 visitors 45% came from the automotive and transport sectors; the aerospace (29%), building and construction (23%) and sports and leisure (22%) sectors were also well represented. Most visitors were decision-makers in their respective fields. Interest centred on raw materials (55%) and technologies (52%). 32% of the visitors to Composites Europe arrived with firm investment projects. The fair also impressed visitors as a new business platform: around to 80% of the visitors said they made new contacts.
