CompositesWorld has announced that the High-Performance Fibers 2009 conference will be held Nov. 17-18, 2009, at the Doubletree Guest Suites Historic Charleston Hotel in Charleston, S.C. This international conference is designed for executives from leading manufacturers of high-performance fibers, such as p-aramids (Kevlar and Twaron), and high-performance polyethylenes (HPPE, Spectra and Dyneema), and S2 glass, as well as end users, such as OEMs, DoD and other research labs, and composites parts manufacturers. Discussions will cover the diverse business opportunities and technical challenges that lie ahead in high-growth applications such as body and vehicular armor, high-performance rope and cordage and sporting goods, as well as in the blast-resistance, fire resistance, marine, aviation and aerospace markets.

More than 100 marketing executives, business development specialists, technical directors and industry experts are expected again at this year’s event in downtown Charleston where they will explore the latest market trends by application and region, as well as the most recent technical information on ballistic and high temperature fiber applications.

In addition, there will be one preconference seminar the morning of Nov. 17 to focus on the latest market developments and technology, as well as numerous networking opportunities at a catered reception, roundtable luncheon, and refreshment breaks.
