Due to Covid-19, AMI’s Composites Events have been merged into a new Composites Virtual Summit
[Bristol, UK, 05 August 2020] – AMI has announced that its four composites conferences: Tooling for Composites, Composites in Rail, Composites in Marine and Composite Testing & Analysis have been combined to create the Composites Virtual Summit. The event will be free-to-attend and will take place from 19-22 October 2020.
Jordaine Minchin, Conference Producer AMI Composites Portfolio, comments “The uncertainty created by Covid-19 has meant that the live events weren’t feasible due to safety concerns, so we wanted to create a forum to bring the industry together to share their projects, knowledge and products.
