CAMX Expo

ACMA and SAMPE have created a new industry event that connects and advances all aspects of the world’s Composites and Advanced Materials communities. Regardless of the application – transportation, aerospace, marine, wind energy, software, construction and infrastructure, medical, academics, sports and leisure – CAMX is North America’s must-attend event for products, solutions, networking, and advanced industry thinking.
