SAMPE Carolinas’ First Materials Expo was a Great Success!

Thanks to all that came to SAMPE Carolinas' Materials Expo!

It was Successful Because of All of You!

The chapter board members would like to express our appreciation for your participation in the 1st SAMPE Carolinas' Materials Expo. It's important for the success of the Chapter and future expos that all participants and exhibitors are able to experience an event that is educational, innovative, gives lots of opportunities for networking and, ultimately, breeds success for you, both professionally and personally. Both the support of our vendors and the attendance of both members and non-memebers alike made for an exciting, educational, and motivating evening. Thank you for coming.
