Where Better Boats Begin

Now powered globally by Metstrade

SEPTEMBER 19-21, 2017 TAMPA CONVENTION CENTER TAMPA, FL USA

Future Materials

CompositesWorldProfessional BoatBuilder

The “Future Materials” is a hands-on exhibit at the center of the IBEX Composites Pavilion and curated by editors from Professional BoatBuilder and CompositesWorld magazines. It offers a collection of new materials, processes, and technologies gathered from a wide variety of sources including marine, aerospace, and automotive industries, plus some applied academic research and development.

“The goal for the Future Materials exhibit is to present a mix of innovative near-term practical applications for boatbuilders as well as ideas to inspire novel solutions to present and future challenges in composites design, fabrication, end-use marketing, recycling, and repair. It has been eye-opening and inspiring to focus Composites World’s broad knowledge of new composites technologies and trends toward the unique needs of boat designers and builders at IBEX. I think the potential in some of these advancements will surprise even experienced marine composites techs.”
—Aaron Porter, editor of Professional BoatBuilder magazine
