Finalists Announced for 2019 CAMX Award

CAMX announces finalists for 2019 CAMX Award recognizing Combined Strength and Unsurpassed Innovation

August 29, 2019 (Arlington, VA.) – CAMX – The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo is proud to announce the finalists for the sixth annual CAMX Award, sponsored by Ashland. The flagship CAMX Award recognizes two game changing innovations that will significantly impact composites and advanced materials. The award is divided into two categories that reflect the depth and breadth of the CAMX theme: Combined Strength. Unsurpassed Innovation.

As two distinct honors, the Combined Strength Award acknowledges a product that incorporates composites materials that solves a problem through teamwork and collaboration, and the Unsurpassed Innovation Award celebrates a product with a design that incorporates low-cost materials for high-volume applications that can change the outlook of a particular market.

The winning entries will be announced at CAMX 2019 in Anaheim, CA and presented during the General Session at CAMX – Tuesday, September 24 at the Anaheim Convention Center Ballroom BC. To see the entries in person, go to the award pavilion of the Exhibit Hall located at the Anaheim Convention Center.
