Composites United, Messe Hannover Together for New LightCon Conference

September 16 2019

Composites United e.V. (Berlin, Germany; formerly CFK Valley e.V. and Carbon Composites e.V.) and Messe Hannover (Hannover, Germany) signed a memorandum of understanding on Aug. 28, solidifying a partnership for the creation of a new international trade fair and conference focused on lightweight materials. The event, to be called LightCon, is scheduled to take place June 23-24, 2020 in Germany as a two-day conference and accompanying exhibition, with plans to expand the event into a larger annual trade fair in 2021. LightCon will replace Carbon Composites’ Symposium Composites event and CFK Valley’s Composites Convention.

The conference, which will be both a German and English language event, will cover the entire value chain of lightweight construction, from applied research to materials, design and development, prototyping and component testing, manufacturing technologies, joining and joining techniques to recycling.

The event addresses developers, designers, purchasers and the management of all levels from user industries such as transport and mobility, aerospace, mechanical engineering, shipbuilding, construction, wind energy and the sports and leisure industries.
