CAMX (The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo), which was held for the first time this year, is jointly produced by the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE).

The CAMX Awards are designed to recognise "innovations and innovators that are shaping the future of composites and advanced materials in the marketplace."

Two awards were presented during CAMX 2014 on 14-16 October in Orlando, Florida:

  • the Combined Strength Award, for a composites product that demonstrates a team effort to produce an example of the best use of composite materials to solve a problem, went to NASA and Boeing for the Composite Cryotank Technologies & Demonstration (CCTD) project.
     
  • the Unsurpassed Innovation Award, presented to a composite product that demonstrates a novel design to create a product with the potential to significantly impact new markets, went to Composite Panel Systems LLC for Epitome Quality Foundation Walls.
