We are pleased to invite you to the Composites in Building & Infrastructure Summit scheduled for May 17-18, 2018 in Berlin, Germany. This premium B2B event builds upon two crucial trends driving the composites industry nowadays: the growing importance of cultivating sustainability in urban spaces and the spreading concept of smart cities. The application of composites is bringing a paradigm shift in the construction sector — their advantages over conventional materials in terms of higher durability, strength, and low ecological footprint make them the material of choice in many state-of-the-art building projects. Initially popularized within the automotive industry, these lightweight and 5G network-penetrable materials are now being rediscovered by architects and engineers from the building sector. Deriving from these tendencies, this conference strives to foster innovation throughout the entire composites value chain and boost advancement in its usage for achieving structural robustness, safety, and renewability. R&D, manufacturing, and application experts are joining us in Berlin to help us deliver this niche knowledge-sharing platform focused on designing and building our future urban areas with composites. It would be our honour to meet you in Berlin this coming spring and hear your perspectives on the topic!
