The organizers of Composite-Expo, which took place in Moscow, Russia, last month, say that it attracted 5,400 visitors from various industries and 100 companies from Great Britain, Germany, Italy, China, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, the Republic of Belarus, Russia, the United States, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Finland, France and Japan.

Composite-Expo is an annual business meeting place of Russian and foreign industry experts, manufacturers, suppliers and consumers of composites, technologies and equipment for composites finished products, according to organizers Mir-Expo Exhibition Company.

The 2021 event was postponed from 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, following compliance with restrictive measures.

The conference, which covered the practical use of composite materials in different industries, was attended by more than 60 specialists and covered subjects such as synthetic composites based on hollow glass microspheres, composites with an aluminum matrix and carbon fiber,  hard-burning glass fiber, and non-destructive testing (NDT).

Composite-Expo 2022 will be held from 29–31 March 2022 in the same location.
