High Performance Fibers discount deadline extended

The early-bird registration deadline for High Performance Fibers 2008 has been extended until Sept. 30. The conference is Oct. 28-29 in Charleston, S.C.

COMPOSITESWORLD, publisher of High-Performance Composites and Composites Technology magazines, has announced that it has extended the early-bird discounted registration deadline for its High-Performance Fibers 2008 conference, which will be held Oct. 28-29, 2008, at the Charleston Marriott Hotel in Charleston, S.C., USA.

“Because of brochure mailing delays, we have decided to extend the discount registration deadline from Sept. 19 to Sept. 30, 2008,” said conference director Scott Stephenson. The cutoff date to obtain a room at the hotel at the discounted rate of $149 will remain at Sept. 27, 2008.

This international conference is designed for executives from leading manufacturers of high-performance fibers, such as p-aramids (Kevlar and Twaron), high-performance polyethylenes (HPPE, Spectra and Dyneema), boron, silicon carbide and other specialty fibers, to network with end users, such as OEMs, DoD and other research labs, and composites parts manufacturers. Discussions will cover the diverse business opportunities and technical challenges that lie ahead in high-growth applications such as body and vehicular armor, high-performance rope and cordage and flame resistant fibers, as well as in the blast-resistance, marine, aviation and aerospace markets.

In addition, there will be a pre-conference seminar the morning of Oct. 28. "High Temperature Composites: Materials, Technologies and Applications," will be presented by Dr. Scott W. Beckwith, President of BTG Composites Inc. and Technical Director of SAMPE.
