Composites Europe to be held annually in Stuttgart

Composites Europe, the trade fair for composites, technology and applications, which has been since 2006 one of the most successful industrial trade fairs in Europe, will take place annually in Stuttgart from next year, Reed Exhibitions reports.

The show has been organised alternately in Düsseldorf and Stuttgart. By changing over to this annual cycle at the Stuttgart location, Composites Europe responds to the exhibitors’ wishes and the advisory board’s unanimous vote, according to organisers.

The decisive argument, says Olaf Freier, Event Director of Composites Europe, is the proximity to the sectors of industry where fibre-reinforced materials are employed. This applies particularly to the automotive sector, car makers, aviation, and space travel, as well as the electrical industry. “The region around Stuttgart and Baden-Württemberg as a whole are innovation drivers in many fields of application. This is the biggest and most dynamic industrial region in Germany and one of the most important manufacturing and technology locations in Europe,” he said.

“The future will be about driving mass production with the latest manufacturing and automation solutions with the aim of tapping into further market potential. Here the industry hopes for additional impulses generated by this location decision,” commented Peter Egger, acting as a Chairman of the Advisory Board of Composites Europe.

Dynamic development

Since the debut event of Composites Europe in 2006, which attracted 143 exhibitors and slightly more than 3,000 trade visitors, this trade fair has developed into the leading event on Europe’s most important market and more than tripled in size.

Composites Europe experienced a particularly dynamic development in Stuttgart, where 470 exhibitors were represented lately. This week in Düsseldorf over 350 exhibitors from 27 nations are showcasing the complete manufacturing chain of fibre composites.

With this, Olaf Freier believes Composites Europe reflects the strong dynamism governing the market for innovative lightweight engineering in Europe. “Boasting a total of 48 national and international associations and industry clusters in which 13,000 enterprises are organised worldwide, Composites Europe already musters one of the biggest international networks today,” he explained.
