The UAMMI team recently participated in one of the largest composites and advanced manufacturing tradeshows in the world- the JEC World Show in Paris. It was a global tradeshow that boasted over 40,000 attendees. UAMMI exhibited at the show within the “Utah Booth” in conjunction with World Trade Center Utah, ACT Composites, Wyoming Test Fixtures, Optimum Composite Technologies and HyperComp Engineering.

I was thrilled to see the Utah companies exhibiting at the booth as well as other Utah companies exhibiting throughout the show. Utah was well represented and people took note of it.  Many visitors that came by the booth mentioned that they’ve heard about the composites activity happening in Utah and wanted to learn more about doing business there, which was very exciting.JEC-World-UAMMI

While the focus of JEC was meant to bring the composites world together, there are also events closer to home that are meant to bring Utah together.  The biggest of these are the UAMMI CrossTalk event and Wasatch Front Materials Expo, happening this week on March 21st at the SLCC Miller Campus.  These premier annual events will bring together many experts and professionals in the Utah advanced material and manufacturing industry.  They are events not to be missed and I strongly encourage you to attend.  Here is what you’ll get out of the events that day:

UAMMI CrossTalk Event

CrossTalk is a free learning exchange event where industry experts will share the latest research and trends in advanced materials and manufacturing. It is for industry employees, researchers, engineers, engineering managers, program managers, R&D teams, management teams, higher education faculty/students and anyone interested in the advanced materials/manufacturing industry in Utah. It runs from 10 AM – 4 PM on March 21st and will consist of expert presentations, discussions, networking breaks and a free lunch! RSVP for that event at:

Wasatch Front Materials Expo

Immediately following the UAMMI CrossTalk event will be the 13th annual Wasatch Front Materials Expo hosted and organized by Utah SAMPE.  This annual expo is Utah’s premier advanced materials and manufacturing expo consisting of 450+ attendees, 60+ vendors, free admission and refreshments!  It’s a great place to connect with anyone and everyone within the advanced manufacturing and materials space in Utah.RSVP for that event here:

While JEC World was a great experience, you don’t have to travel around the world to connect with the Utah advanced materials and manufacturing industry.  We have a great opportunity to connect with each other this week and I hope you’ll take advantage of it. See you there!
