- Innovation in Composite Design;

Claire Whysall, Communications Manager for Composites UK said; "The Awards Dinner really is going from strength-to-strength. The UK composites industry has a lot to celebrate and coinciding the dinner with the Composites Engineering Show means companies can bring employees after a hard day's work on their stands as well as clients to thank them for their support. The dinner also attracts many companies who just walk the show as they see it as a valuable networking experience.
"Over 85 seats have already been sold to our member companies and the event is still eight months away."
Deadline for award entries is 29th May 2015, after which the applications will be shortlisted. The winners of the awards will then be announced at the dinner. Attendee registration is currently open to Composites UK members, with the wider composites community able to book seats from 1st April. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
