British Marine to support sector showcase

The event will attract around 100 delegates and will welcome companies from across the supply chain.  Composites UK has secured the support of British Marine for its next sector showcase, Composite Materials in Marine Applications, which takes place on 11 October at Southampton Football Club.

The event will attract around 100 delegates and will welcome companies from across the supply chain – from manufacturers of fibre reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) to designers, consultants and end users. It will also serve to facilitate knowledge transfer between industry and academia.

“Having the support of British Marine for this event means we are able to connect the composites community with end users, discovering the needs of boat-builders when using FRPs, what challenges are faced and future opportunities where the properties of the materials could be utilised,” commented Claire Whysall, Communications Manager at Composites UK. “This partnership will also open the door to future conversations between members of both organisations, particularly in relation to standards and design.”

The event programme will include presentations from OEMs/Tier 1 companies, information on standards, design and testing, learning from other industries – particularly motorsport via the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) and its Motorsport to Marine initiative and finally case studies and current project work.

“Composites play such an important part right across our industry, so we are delighted to be working with Composites UK to further both our members' and the wider marine industry's understanding of the opportunities for composites development,” said Ross Wombwell, British Marine's Technical Manager.

“I am really looking forward to speaking to and hearing from other sectors, and learning from their experiences, and I encourage all our members with an interest in composites use to sign up and attend.”
