The global composites industry reunited at JEC World 2023

JEC World, heading to a more sustainable world

JEC World’s conference program, once again, shone a light on THE topic that has been driving the industry for some years now: sustainability. Covering all aspects of sustainability within the composites value chain, the conference program underlined the essential role of composites in reducing CO2 emissions and energy consumption by lightweighting, but also in ensuring long lasting performance and durability, thanks to the unique properties of composites.

In parallel to the conference program, the exhibits and solutions presented by the exhibitors have shown the strong commitment of the whole composites industry to sustainability. At JEC World, the converging efforts of all stakeholders, heading towards a sustainable future, created a global statement and motivation source for the participants.

JEC World, the place to celebrate

JEC World was certainly a place to celebrate, and not only the 60th anniversary of the JEC non-profit organization, dedicated to promoting composite materials and their adoption since 1963. Many exhibiting companies also celebrated their anniversaries over the three days, some being involved in composites for more than 50 years. JEC World is the biggest opportunity for the composites community to gather with all its partners and honor the developments and successes that have taken place over the years.

Many joined this composites party: Ministers, Ambassadors and Official representatives from 16 countries visited the show as part of dedicated official delegation tours from the United States, Turkey, Taiwan, Portugal, the Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Switzerland, Egypt and Spain, as well as the Land of Hessen, Baden Wurttemberg and a delegation from SAMPE Japan.

With all parts of the world represented at the show as well as all generations of composites actors, present and future - students were welcome to join a day dedicated to education and recruiting on April 27th - JEC World was an unmissable event to get inspired, celebrate the dynamism of the industry and a bright future to come! With confidence, 58% of the exhibition space has already been booked for the next edition that will take place from March 5th to 7th, 2024, hinting at another great time to come for composites enthusiasts. Exhibitors and attendees have expressed very positive feedback about the quality of the exhibition and the success, once again, of this pinnacle event of the industry.
