Opening General Session: CAMX Live!

Tue. December 12| 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM | OCCC - Level 4 - Valencia Ballroom

Disruptive innovation is generally known to be something that creates a new market or disrupts an existing market by displacing established market leaders.  Can composites and advanced materials do this with the traditional materials we compete with?  We believe it can, and there are many examples in our industry which are demonstrating this.  The general session will provide examples of how companies are thinking about designing and creating in new ways to make radical changes to products and the industry.  Take away a few ideas on innovation and some inspiration for the future of composites and advanced materials. 

During the session, the CAMX Award winners, sponsored by Ashland, will also be presented.
