Trade association Composites Germany and its member organisations AVK, CCeV, CFK-Valley und VDMA Forum Composite Technology has released the program for their first joint composites congress.

The 1st International Composites Congress (ICC) will take place from 21–22 September 2015 in Stuttgart, Germany. This event replaces the AVK Conference and will be the meeting place for the international composites community from 2015.

The congress program gives an overview of trends, market developments (European and global), new applications and technologies. This year's partner country, the USA, is represented in the program with a key note speech entitled ‘US Composites Industry trends and growth’.

The AVK Innovation Award ceremony on the first evening of the congress will be followed by the Composites Night, which provides a suitable opportunity for communication and networking.
