CLOSING LUNCHEON – Composites and Sports

Composites are revolutionizing the sports equipment industry. Athletes are taking notice of the “composites difference”, and sporting goods companies are responding by incorporating composites into their products. Join us for lunch and hear our panel of experts who will discuss some of the equipment trends for the sports they manufacture and design for, the benefits of composites and how composites can become commonplace in sports. The panel will also discuss how tariffs and the workforce shortage in the United States are affecting production and sourcing. This is sure to be an interesting discussion that will help you watch your favorite sporting events with a new “composites” lens. The luncheon is open to all attendees and exhibitors (ticket required), and will be held on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. Learn more.
