CompositesWorld’s SourceBook 2017 team: “It’s not too late”

Extra time has been granted for composites industry suppliers to renew/update listing data and ensure their places in the 2017 print edition.

CompositesWorld, the publisher of CompositesWorld magazine, is in the final stages of preparation for print publication of its industry pace-setting B2B buyer’s guide, SourceBook 2017. Although the official renewal deadline lapsed on Friday, Aug. 19, and the large majority of past listees have elected to renew their listings for 2017, it was clear that a number of factors — among them, extended vacations in European regions — have prevented some suppliers from renewing/updating in a timely fashion.

 “We reached the end of our scheduled renewal campaign but realized that there were still a number of companies who have been with us for years but haven’t updated their listings for the 2017 directory,” explains Mike Musselman, the SourceBook’s managing editor. “So we’re extending our deadline — we don’t want anyone to be left out. And, just to be clear — we always have some questions in this regard — yes, the listing is free of charge. Renewal is free as well. We offer listings to industry suppliers as a service to them and to our loyal readers.”

The extended deadline for renewal is Friday, Sept. 9.

A notice of the deadline extension and complete instructions on how to access the SourceBook’s online listing form, will be sent out, Wednesday, Aug. 31, via e-mail, to all previous SourceBook listees who have not yet responded.

Suppliers who don’t receive the e-mail can check whether or not their SourceBook  listing already has been updated by visiting the Web version of the SourceBook at

NOTE: Companies with a check mark after their names have been renewed for 2017.

No check mark? No listing in the print edition. “Contact me immediately to ensure that the listing is up-to-date and included in SourceBook 2017,” advises Musselman, who can be reached at “The renewal process is done online and can take as little as one minute.”
