Save the Date

The ITHEC 2024 will take place from the 9 to 10 October 2024 in Bremen, Germany.

At the 7th International Conference, more than 300 participants from around the world will be presenting and discussing newest scientific results, meet leading international specialists, share their expertise and start business co-operations in the field of thermoplastic composite technologies.

The international exhibition will feature 40+ exhibitors showcasing all steps of the supply-chain. Be it materials, machines, testing, processes, or solutions. By combining the exhibition and the conference ITHEC is further fostering the inter-connectivity between science and industry.

After successfully tackling the challenges of a virtual event in 2020 and the intricacies of creating a hybrid event in 2022, ITHEC is going back to a fully on-site event. The ITHEC thrives on face-to-face meetings, networking and interpersonal relationships.

Every two years the thermoplastic community makes their way to Bremen to discuss the latest trends, share their unique expertise and present innovative technologies. After revisiting your feedback and careful consideration we are more than happy to continue on with the tradition and going back to our roots.

Looking forward to seeing you back in Bremen!
