Supporting UK Composites

Composites UK to Support Seawork International

Composites UK is supporting Seawork International, which takes place on 11 – 13 June 2019, in Southampton with a composites focussed forum session.

This annual exhibition attracts over 7,700 visitors each year comprising of high-calibre, high-spending maritime industry professionals who recognise the wealth of innovation and expertise that Seawork provides.

Seawork International hosts over 610 exhibitors from 70 countries showcasing 10,000 products and services. To support the UK composites industry in promoting themselves to the marine market, Seawork are offering preferential exhibition rates to Composites UK members, regardless as to whether a shell scheme or a space only option is favoured. There’s also an option, for SMEs wishing to make their mark, to be placed in the Small Business Enterprise Zone.

As well as the exhibition, there is a three-day conference programme containing high-quality papers covering issues affecting marine operators on a day-to-day basis, presented by industry experts. Composites UK will be hosting a special forum session to highlight composites in the marine sector, covering topics such as; Available support; Sustainability and recycling; Skills and the Composite Trailblazer Apprenticeship.

Claire Whysall, Communications Manager at Composites UK said; “Following on from our member stand at last year’s event we are delighted to be supporting Seawork again but this time on a larger scale. The preferential exhibitor rates will help our members showcase their businesses to the maritime market, with the forum session giving those new to fibre-reinforced polymer composites a helping hand as to where they can find the support they need.”

Andrew Webster, CEO of Mercator Media – organiser of Seawork, said; “Composite technology brings weight reduction and increased rigidity. It is being applied in an increasing number of structures of all types. We’re very pleased to welcome Composites UK as a forward looking addition to Seawork.”
