CompositesWorld (Wheat Ridge, Colo.), publisher of High-Performance Composites and Composites Technology magazines, has announced that the agenda is set for its Composites Industry Investment Forum, which will be held Feb. 21-22, 2008, at The Roosevelt Hotel, New York, N.Y. The chairman for this year's conference is Dee James (D.J.) DeLong, managing director of DeLong & Associates LLC.
This international conference is designed for executives from leading composite industry suppliers, industry analysts, investment bankers, and industry end users to discuss opportunities for composite materials in projected high-growth markets, such as commercial aircraft and renewable energy applications, like wind blades.
More than 100 marketing executives, business development specialists, investment analysts and composite industry experts will explore the global and regional forces impacting the increased use of composite materials. Presentations, questions and answer sessions and panel discussions will focus on economic forces impacting these markets, such as high energy costs and global warming, and how composite companies can profit from these forces and increase market share over traditional materials like steel, aluminum and concrete. Presentations will include supply and demand forecasts, cost models for fiber plants and how investment in advanced automated production processes are helping composite materials penetrate these markets.
