The Composites and Advanced Materials Premier Expo is Postponed as Hurricane Irma Tracks Towards the Florida Coast

September 7, 2017 (Arlington, VA) Due to the forecasted impact of Hurricane Irma, CAMX – The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo, will not be held next week as planned. CAMX 2017 – North America’s go-to composites event for products, solutions, networking and advanced industry thinking – was scheduled to begin on September 11, 2017, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

CAMX, co-produced by the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE), has seen substantial growth since its launch in 2014.

“CAMX continues to be a vitally important event for our industry to do business, network, and learn from each other, but in light of the projected path of Hurricane Irma, airline cancellations, and the safety and well-being of our attendees and exhibitors, we are forced to make the difficult decision to not hold CAMX 2017 next week as planned,” said ACMA President, Tom Dobbins.

CAMX will review potential future dates later this year. CAMX is an important event for the composites and advanced materials industry, especially for all the attendees and exhibitors who rely on it each year to conduct business and learn about the latest innovations and trends.

Gregg Balko, SAMPE CEO and Executive Director said, “Our first concern is safety. With Hurricane Irma’s storm track, we want to ensure the safety of thousands of suppliers, manufacturers, and professionals in the composites and advanced materials industry who planned to be in Orlando for CAMX next week. To our CAMX family and friends in Florida, our thoughts are with you and your family.”

CAMX will make regular updates, including details on registration, housing, potential new dates, exhibitor specific information, and other updates on a dedicated webpage. Updates will also be available on Facebook and Twitter , and attendees will also receive regular email communications with further instructions in the coming weeks.
