The International Composites Summit announces Advisory Council

The organisers of the International Composites Summit (ICS), Composites UK and Fluency have announced the formulation of its new Advisory Council.

ICS, which takes place on 6–7 September 2023 is now in its third year and moves to the larger venue of Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes. It will build on end-sector and associated industry engagement to help support in the journey towards net-zero, where composites will play a critical role.

The ICS Advisory Council (ISCAC) is a group of key industry players, designed to help steer the development and direction of the exhibition, so that it continues to support and meet the needs of industry in delivering solutions to decarbonisation and circularity challenges across the sectors.

The ICSAC consists of the following representatives of their sectors:

  • Aerospace and Defence – Harriet Wollerton, ADS Services Director, ADS | Keri Montague, Research and Innovation Manager, Leonardo Helicopters
  • Automotive – Andrew Mansfield, EV Supply Chain Manager, SMMT | Hannah Khusainova, Marketing Director, PRF Composites | Paula Constantinou, Marketing and Communications Director, Hexcel
  • Marine – Ross Wombwell, Head of Technical Services, British Marine | Andrew Hay, Engineering Director, Princess Yachts
  • Energy – Barnaby Wharton, Director – Future Electricity Systems, RenewableUK | James Luter, Head of Operations, Vestas
  • Construction – James Henderson, Technical Director - Digital Asset Management, Atkins
  • Rail – David Clarke, Technical Director, RIA | Jonathan Howard, Head of Growth, Dura Composites
  • Technology - Andrew Hopcraft, COO, National Composites Centre/HVMC
  • Media – Mike Richardson, Editor, Composites in Manufacturing | Eric Pierrejean, CEO, JEC

The kick-off meeting of the Advisory Council was held at IMechE in London on Tuesday 2nd May 2023. The council will meet twice a year.

Mirroring UK strengths, ICS showcases what’s great about composites in the UK and is the place for international and national customers to meet with the UK supply chain, and for suppliers to meet with UK customers.

Registration is now open and is free-of-charge to all attendees. Exhibition and sponsorship options are available.
