Congratulations SAMPE team on launching a successful leadership forum to discuss the challenges, synergies , and advancements in composites manufacturing. Glad to moderate the "Synergies" session. Whether it was the connection between spacecraft and consumer electronics product needs from Maxar Technologies; sharing insights on material innovation applicable to multiple manufacturing processes from Toray Composite Materials America, Inc. and material development combined with additive manufacturing to solve automotive industry needs from Divergent. You kept us engaged and inquisitive about the technology development, application, and the next steps. Glad to attend the workshop courses and grow my understanding of advanced composites. Shoutout to the attendees, speakers, sponsors moderators, SAMPE staff, and SAMPE-Los Angeles Chapter.

The inaugural SAMPE forum was a refreshing reminder of how SAMPE is staying on top of advanced materials development in emerging markets.  I’ll be back the next year to gain insight from these industry leaders in this outstanding venue at a very reasonable cost… was worth every dollar.
