Day 1’s plenary session will open with the keynote from Dr Roland Thevenin of Airbus SAS analysing the future of carbon fibre in Airbus.

"I spoke about the A350 and A380 projects at the Global Outlook for Carbon Fibre conference in 2007 in San Diego and found the event to be an excellent forum for discussion of technical and market aspects for carbon fibre composites.

A lot of water has passed under the bridge on these projects and Airbus's further work with carbon fibres and I am looking forward to returning to IntertechPira's event in 2010 to share our experiences and vision for the future with the industry in what I'm sure will be a very interesting and enjoyable conference in Valencia,” said Thevenin.

The session will be chaired by Bernard Zeller of Structil and will also present Dr Ing Wolfgang Oelerich of Adam Opel GmbH, Bill Carberry of Boeing Commercial Airplanes and Dr James Meredith of the University of Warwick.
