SAMPE presents CAMX 2020 virtual conference
September 21-24, 2020
CAMX – the Composites and Advanced Materials Expo—is the largest, most comprehensive composites and advanced materials event in North America for products, solutions, networking, and advanced industry thinking. This year, it’s a New CAMX for a New Time. Even though we will not be together in person, we still want to provide those who would visit CAMX, both attendees and exhibitors, with opportunities to network with industry peers and to advance their technical knowledge. Join us!
Join the 13th Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Jim Bridenstine, for a lively discussion. NASA is helping move the industry forward in these trying times through investments in R&D and technology. Bridenstine will highlight the connection between technology developments in advanced materials and US competitiveness in manufacturing across a range of business sectors. He will wrap up his talk with an overview of NASA’s partnership opportunities for businesses of all sizes.
This session is open to all CAMX attendees. Monday, September 21 | 12:15 pm – 1:00 pm ET
