New joint SAMPE/ACMA show formally named CAMX

The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX) will be held Oct. 13-16, 2014 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., USA.

The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE, Covina, Calif.) and the American Composites Manufacturers Assn. (ACMA, Arlington, Va.) announced July 31 that their jointly owned and operated trade show and conference will be called CAMX — the Composites and Advanced Materials Expo.

            SAMPE and ACMA, which traditionally have each operated their own trade shows, announced late last year that they would launch a combined show in 2014, effectively consolidating the former SAMPE Show and ACMA’s COMPOSITES show into a single fall event. The result will be one North American trade show for the entire composites industry.

SAMPE brings with it composites professionals who primarily serve the aerospace market and other advanced materials applications. ACMA has served a broad range of applications, including those in the marine, wind energy, automotive, infrastructure and industrial markets. Gardner Business Media Inc. (Cincinnati, Ohio), which owns and publishes High-Performance Composites and sister publication Composites Technology, will be a CAMX media partner.

CAMX will take place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., and will comprise a conference program and exhibition, held Oct. 13-16, 2014.
