CFK-VALLEY STADE CONVENTION – ANNUAL REUNION OF THE BRANCHE

CFK-Valley Stade Convention is one of the most innovative expert conferences and showcases on the topic of composite lightweight constructions. Almost 450 participants – international experts from the composites industry – annually participate in this special event as a global marketplace for CFRP technologies.

The CFK-Valley Stade Convention took place for the first time in 2007. The number of participants and exhibitors has greatly increased since then. In spite of inflation-related economic stagnation (in 2008/2009) the carbon fiber market was able to record constant growth rates. Energy efficiency, cost reduction, and low carbon emissions are major topics that concern nearly all branches of industry worldwide.

Top notch speakers (from e.g. Daimler AG, Airbus Operations GmbH, ESI Group, Korea Institute of Carbon Convergence Technology) presented their latest developments in the technologies, processes and construction methods of composite lightweight construction - both in research and in practice. The lectures were always clustered into thematic sessions.
