SourceBook 2018: CW’s listing campaign kicks into high gear

Renewal reminders for cost-free listings in the composites industry’s most comprehensive B2B buyer’s guide will go out today.

More than 675 suppliers to the composites industry already have renewed their listings for SourceBook 2018. But there are more than 2,000 industry suppliers who have yet to do the same with their complimentary listings in the composites industry’s premier online and print B2B sourcing guide. The word from the CompositesWorld staff and the publishers of the SourceBook 2018 is simple:

Don’t be left out!

“We ask suppliers to renew their listings each year to ensure our readers that the information we provide in the SourceBook, both in print and online, is accurate and up to date,” says CW and SourceBook editor-in-chief Jeff Sloan.

The deadline for renewals has been extended to Friday, Aug. 25. But only those suppliers who renew (renewal is cost-free) will appear in the print directory.

SourceBook managing editor Mike Musselman will send out reminders today, via e-mail, to alert guide listees to the approaching renewal deadline. Suppliers who were listed in the SourceBook at any time in the past several years should expect to find an e-mail in their inboxes this week, with “Reminder: SourceBook 2018 Buyer's Guide Listing Renewal” in the subject line.

The e-mail will again contain a popular feature that allows the recipient to see the company’s current SourceBook listing in the body of the e-mail. If no changes are necessary, the company representative will be able to renew the listing with a single click!

If the listing needs an update, the representative will have browser-enabled access to the company’s current online listing form to personally make changes and submit the updated listing for print publication. And those changes will be reflected automatically in the online listing giving CW website visitors accurate information about their company immediately! As always, that same browser link can be used to gain one-click access to the company’s online listing for updates at any time, all through the year.

Companies not currently listed in the SourceBook may request a link to a new listing form by e-mailing company contact information (company name, address, phone, fax, e-mail and Web address), plus the name and e-mail address of the person who should receive the link, to

SourceBook 2018’s managing editor Mike Musselman emphasizes that a free directory listing is available to any company that supplies materials, machinery and other goods and/or services to composite parts manufacturers. In addition, a free listing also is available to any educational institution that offers composites-related training or coursework.
