The organizing committee for the SPE (Troy, Mich., USA) Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition (ACCE) has issued a call for parts competition nominations for the group's 14th-annual show, Sept. 9-11, 2014 in Novi, Mich.
There will be one winner in each of three categories ― Body Exterior, Body Interior and People's ― with winning teams receiving recognition and a trophy during lunch on the last day of the show.
There is no cost to enter the competition. Any registered conference participant (speakers, sponsors/exhibitors, or attendees) may nominate original equipment or aftermarket composite parts on passenger cars or light trucks from any geography. The only requirement is that parts must be on a vehicle available for commercial sale and the OEM must give permission. Nomination instructions will be found at speautomotive.com/comp.htm. Preliminary descriptions and photos about the application’s innovations are due Aug. 30, 2014 and should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Physical parts must be brought to the SPE ACCE for final review by judges during a formal walk-through at the show. For more information about the ACCE, visit speautomotive.com/comp.htm.
