First joint ACMA/SAMPE show set for Orlando

Joint conference and exhibition will be held Oct. 14-16, 2014, in Orlando, Fla.

The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE, Covina, Calif., USA) and the American Composites Manufacturers Association (Arlington, Va., USA) indicated on March 7 that the two organizations’ joint conference and exhibition will be held Oct. 14-16, 2014 in Orlando, Fla., USA.

SAMPE and ACMA have long each held their own composites conference and exhibitions, but agreed last year in principle to a joint show, designed to provide a venue to serve the entire advanced materials and composites industry in North America and throughout the world.

The joint show has not been formally named, and dates and locations for beyond 2014 have not yet been finalized.
