SOURCEBOOK 2016: CompositesWorld to begin annual listing renewal campaign

Suppliers alerted to update their cost-free listings in the composites industry’s most comprehensive online and print B2B buyer’s guide.

CompositesWorld, the publisher of CompositesWorld magazine and the CompositesWorld Weekly e-newsletter, will send out the first of its annual listing renewal notices this week to more than 2,300 machinery manufacturers, material suppliers and other organizations that serve the composites industry, as preparations begin for publication of SourceBook 2016, the composites industry’s premier B2B sourcing guide.

“We ask suppliers to renew their listings each year to assure our readers that the information we provide in the SourceBook, both in print and online, is accurate and up to date,” says CW editor-in-chief Jeff Sloan.

Suppliers who were listed in the SourceBook (print or online) at any time in the past two years should expect to find an e-mail in their inboxes on Aug. 5, with “SourceBook 2016 – Composites Industry Directory Update” in the subject line.

The e-mail will again contain a popular feature that allows the recipient to see a complete and accurate read-out of the company’s current SourceBook listing in the body of the e-mail. If that read-out is still correct, the company representative will be able to renew the listing with a single click!

If the listing needs an update, the representative will have the same easy one-click online access to the company’s current online listing form that he or she has enjoyed in past renewal seasons. And the changes that are made will be reflected immediately in the online listing! As always, that same link within the e-mail can be saved as a browser “favorite” or bookmarked and reused at any time thereafter throughout the year to update the company’s online listing. No need to contact CW or otherwise request access. The supplier’s listing is always just one click away.

Companies that supply the composites industry but are not currently listed in the SourceBook may request a link to a new listing form by e-mailing their company contact information (company name, address, phone, fax, e-mail and Web address), plus the name and e-mail address of the person who should receive the listing link, to (Unsure whether you company is listed or not?

SOURCEBOOK 2016’s managing editor Mike Musselman emphasizes that a free directory listing is available to any company that supplies materials, machinery and other goods and/or services to composite parts manufacturers. In addition, a free listing also is available to any educational institution that offers composites-related training or coursework.

The print version, SourceBook 2016, will be mailed internationally to subscribers of CW magazine. Watch the CW Weekly for regular updates on the SourceBook 2016 renewal campaign.
