AVK says that international speakers at this year's conference will report on new solutions relating to production processes and innovations in both materials and applications. They will also offer their insights into the areas of recycling and standardisation - important issues for the whole composites industry - together with European and global market developments and trends for GRP and CRP.

The presentation ceremony of the AVK Innovation Award will take place on the first evening of the conference while the ‘Composites Night’ offers an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences exclusively with the exhibitors from the COMPOSITES EUROPE trade fair. In addition, the ALUMINIUM trade fair, which runs at the same time, will offer visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to extend their horizons still further.
