For 2013, the American Composites Manufacturers Assn. (ACMA, Arlington, Va.) returns its annual U.S. COMPOSITES exhibition and convention to the East Coast’s sunny, fun capital, Orlando, Fla., after a 2012 sojourn in the Desert West’s sun ‘n’ fun capital, Las Vegas, Nev.

Named one of the 50 fastest growing trade shows in 2011 by Trade Show Executive magazine, COMPOSITES 2013, ACMA claims, is the largest gathering of composites professionals in North America. ACMA expects to see, in Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center, more than 3,500 visitors (up 25 percent in each of the past four years), who hail from the U.S. and 35 other countries. Based on past attendance data, attendees are likely to represent more than 650 companies that serve a total of 40 composites market segments and will include a host of government officials and academics from 32 colleges and universities. ACMA intends to treat them to more than 100 conference educational sessions and technical presentations and an exhibit hall with more than 220 exhibitors.
