ACMA’s Inaugural Composites Executive Forum

The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) is connecting Washington’s leaders, OEMs and composites industry executives at the Composites Executive Forum, April 1-3, 2014, at the Lowes Madison Hotel in Washington, DC. This new event provides senior business executives within the composites industry a venue for understanding market development opportunities and the economic landscape that relates to structural material markets.

“There are always opportunities and risks when navigating markets, however the insights of end users and federal agencies that influence structural material selection help executives evaluate those opportunities.” said ACMA’s president Tom Dobbins. The Forum is designed to provide those insights, in an intimate setting for peer-to-peer networking. Participants will gain overview of legislative and regulatory issues affecting the composites industry, with the opportunity to visit with Members of Congress.

“This event provides attendees with intelligence on all the major markets including energy, transportation and infrastructure” Dobbins added. “Participants are going to walk away with new insights on markets and contacts with thought leaders in composites.”
