A new format based on end-users JEC World: new location, new format, new programs the Exhibition and the conferences address the whole Composites value chain from raw materials to intermediates and above all, end-using Industries highly consumer of composites materials such as Aerospace, Automotive, Energy or Sports & Leisure. JEC World will give room and space to these sectors, offering for the first time 4 "planets" organized around a galleria of innovations but also discussions and networking areas.
"Composites have the power to change the world. Last year, we launched Composites for Better Living, an expo within the exhibition in order to present composite objects that enhance the quality of our lives. In 2016, we will go further and explore how composites respond to the challenges of this century: energy, sustainability, and environment. Therefore, we will exhibit materials, technologies and products that are increasingly energy efficient, resources- saving and reusable. JEC Group launches 4 NEW Spaces called Planets, inviting visitors to indulge their curiosity and explore the Future: Aerospace Planet,
Automotive Planet, and Sustainable Planet. In 2016, the Composites for Better Living Planet will be dedicated to Sports & Leisures. Our new format should reward and inspire our ever growing numbers of visitors. JEC World 2016 will be the place where innovative minds can find even more diverse and often unexpected perspectives on Composites and can share their discoveries with others," explains Mrs. Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO.
In recent years, South Korean firms have been at the forefront of several noteworthy composite material developments that have been recognized worldwide in particular for their Carbon breakthroughs. Moreover, the close relationships of the Golden triangle made of Government, Industry and Research together with Material Sciences and Engineering is vital in the development of Composites in a country. These models of virtuous circles have proven to be positive and fruitful in many countries and South Korea is one very good example.
JEC World is the biggest and most attended Composites event in the World. No other conference or Exhibition in Europe, America nor Asia gather the many attendees and exhibitors and offer such a high quality program. Three days will only be enough time to visit the 1,300 exhibiting brands, attend the 11 conferences and the Innovation Awards Ceremony, participate in the 30+ Technical Sales Presentations and be part of the 600+ B2B Meetings or the many other JEC programs developed for the Community.
Furthermore, the Automotive Composites circle that gathers Top Leaders of this Industry to develop synergies and favour networking will take place during JEC World. Last year circle was highlighted with insightful speeches from PSA, Toyota, Siemens and the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation. In parallel, the Live Demo Zone will exemplify the growing advances of automation in Composites Manufacturing.Paris Nord Villepinte fairgrounds: the biggest venue in France to the benefit of the Composites Industry The largest global meeting for composites has adapted its size and location with a substantial growth, reaching 62,000 sqm of exhibit space in 2016. The new venue will, with no doubts, improve the attendees and exhibitors ‘experience with JEC World, as the modern and functional site is close to infrastructures like the airport Roissy Charles de Gaulle, the Roissy TGV highspeed train station and minutes away from Paris city center thanks to the RER rapid transit system, and JEC shuttles providing our international visitors with easy access. Moreover, the attendee experience will be improved thanks to the infrastructures and many services that the venue provides.
