Fluency Marketing has announced the final program for its inaugural event, MarineAM. The two-day conference and exhibition, with a focus on advanced materials for the marine sector, will take place on July 6-7, 2021, at Southampton Harbour Hotel, U.K.
Sessions in the MarineAM program will focus on:
- Advanced materials for marine
- Design and performance
- Additive manufacturing
- Advanced fusion techniques
- Resistant materials
- Electrification and hybrid propulsion
- Damage, repair and inspection.
Previously announced speakers from across the supply chain — including composite leaders such as 9TLabs, Com&Sens, Hexcel and BComp, to name a few — will provide insightful and thought-provoking presentations, sharing expertise, latest projects and compelling case studies from the sector. James Scott-Anderson of British Marine will open the conference with an update on the sustainability roadmap as well as hosting a sustainability workshop during the event. More details are coming soon. View the full program here.
“It is great to see experts from across the supply chain come together for what is set to be an incredible event,” says Gemma Smith, managing director. “The program has developed into a great insight into the marine sector. We look forward to welcoming companies from across the industry to engage in two days of thought-provoking, knowledge exchange.”

The matrix binds the fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines its surface quality. A composite matrix may be a polymer, ceramic, metal or carbon. Here’s a guide to selection.
Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) replacing coated steel in more reinforced-concrete applications.
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.
