CAMX 2019 | CW

 The CAMX 2020 conference and exhibition, originally scheduled for Orlando, Fla., U.S., will be held Sept. 21 – 24, 2020, and has transformed into a completely virtual event. CAMX organizers say that a virtual event allows the entire global composites and advanced materials community to network, share and learn together during these unprecedented times. Attendees and exhibitors will still be able to participate in the same education, demonstrations and networking opportunities that have always made CAMX so important to the composites industry.

CAMX is scheduled to kick off on Monday, Sept. 21 and will continue through the week with live featured panels and sessions, real time Q&A for speakers, a robust exhibit hall and other on-demand content. Prior to that, a series of free webinars will begin on Aug. 12 and run for four weeks leading up to CAMX as a preview of the full event. Tutorials will also be offered during the week of Sept. 7.

In addition, there will be multiple opportunities for attendees, exhibitors and speakers to network through online campfire chats, one-on-one virtual meetings, matchmaking functions and more.

Topics for CAMX 2020’s featured sessions include urban air mobility, bonding and joining technologies, composites for modern architecture, future factories, high-performance thermoplastic composites, Industry 4.0, infrastructure durability needs and sustainability.

CAMX is co-produced by the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE; Diamond Bar, Calif., U.S.) and the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA; Arlington, Va., U.S.). Visit for more information and go to for updates and show coverage.


  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • Microspheres: Fillers filled with possibilities

    For composite applications, these hollow microstructures displace a lot of volume at low weight and add an abundance of processing and product enhancements.

  • The making of glass fiber

    The old art behind this industry’s first fiber reinforcement is explained,with insights into new fiber science and future developments.
