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.
