IACMI, alongside industry members and innovation partners, is in Dallas this week for CAMX 2021. IACMI leaders will deliver featured presentations and technical papers that focus on the industry’s latest topics, trends, and continued growth. IACMI members and partners are highly engaged as well, presenting technical papers at the conference. IACMI will be exhibiting on the show floor along with 40-plus of its members and partners.

Tonight (Oct. 18), prior to CAMX officially kicking off Tuesday, IACMI will be honored at an awards dinner in Dallas hosted by SAMPE. IACMI is a winner of the SAMPE 2021 Organizational Excellence Award. The award recognizes organizations from industry, academia, and/or government that exemplify the best of SAMPE from within the advanced materials and process community as a whole.

IACMI Members Exhibiting at CAMX 2021

Dale Brosius
IACMI Chief 
Commercialization Officer
“Trends, Ideas, and Patterns Shaping the Composites Industry”
Tuesday, Oct. 19 | 1:00-2:15 pm CT | West Fork Room

Moderated by Jeff Sloan, Editor-in-Chief for CompositesWord, the session will feature Dale as a panelists along with other composites-focused leaders whose long experience will help you understand the technologies, applications, markets, materials, processes, and innovations that are simultaneously challenging and empowering the industry.

Dr. Uday Vaidya
IACMI Chief Technology Officer
“Sustainability of Composite Materials: How Customers View our Industry”
Wednesday, Oct. 20 | 2:30-3:45 pm CT | West Fork Room

Moderated by Dan Coughlin, VP of ACMA Composites Market Development, the session will feature Uday and other panelists exploring the range of feedback from end-users and how composites are positioned to compete with metals, wood, and other materials. Composite materials are used in a wide variety of applications, from cars to construction, boats to bicycles, and electrical to industrial. Each market segment has its own perspective on sustainability.

John Unser
IACMI Technology Manager and
VP of Programs/Project Management for Composite Applications Group (CAG)
“The Benefits of FRP Bridge Decks for Rural Communities”
Wednesday, Oct. 20 | 4:00-4:25 pm CT | Room D-221

John will present a technical paper showcasing how fiber-reinforced polymer bridge deck systems offer sustainable solutions for the nation’s aging bridge infrastructure. The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) 2020 Bridge Report states more than one third (37%) of U.S. bridges, nearly 231,000 spans, need repair work. More than 46,000 of America’s bridges are rated “structurally deficient.” A total of 81,000 bridges should be replaced.
