Composites Industry Investment Forum registration deadline extended

The deadline for discounted registration for the COMPOSITESWORLD Composites Industry Investment Forum in New York City has been extended to Feb. 1.

COMPOSITESWORLD (Wheat Ridge, Colo.), publisher of High-Performance Composites and Composites Technology magazines, has announced that it has extended the early-bird discounted registration deadline for its Composites Industry Investment Forum, which will be held Feb. 21-22, 2008, at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York, N.Y.

"Because of brochure mailing delays encountered over the holidays, we have decided to extend the discount registration deadline from Jan. 18 to Feb.1, 2008,"said conference director Scott Stephenson. The cutoff date to obtain a room at the hotel at the discounted rate of $239 will remain at Jan. 30, 2008.

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.

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.
