Composites in Construction Middle East

CompIC Middle East is an international conference and exhibition. The next CompIC event will take place in Amsterdam, February 2019 before returning to the Middle East in 2020.

The CompIC series of events explores and educates delegates on the current and future use of fibre reinforced composites in construction, detailing innovations and trends in the industry, potential for weight saving on large span structures, economic advantages, whole life cost, architectural freedom and diversity and challenging traditional architectural design.

The conference attracts an audience of professional end-users, architects, asset owners, composite manufacturers, material suppliers, engineers, consultants, designers and academics.
