JEC SA has set up two different meetings at the JEC Composites Show 2002 (April 9-10-11, 2002) that will focus on Building and Construction. One is a Construction Forum and the other, a Construction Exhibition.
In order to meet the requirements of professionals such as international architects, specifiers, building engineers, local authorities, systems and material suppliers, public utilities, and composites processors, JEC SA has set up two different meetings at the JEC Composites Show 2002 (April 9-10-11, 2002) that will focus on Building and Construction. One is a Construction Forum and the other, a Construction Exhibition.
The Construction Forum will take place on Thursday, April 11 from 10am to 12pm. It will focus on the reinforcement of infrastructures and the challenging new applications in civil engineering and pipe systems (see program on the next page). During the 3 days of the JEC COMPOSITES SHOW 2002, visitors will be able to discover the innovative applications in the fields of construction and infrastructure at The CONSTRUCTION EXHIBITION.
The main objective of the CONSTRUCTION FORUM and EXHIBITION is to highlight the major markets in building and construction for composites applications. It will also be possible to meet end users and processors at both meetings, which have been organized in co-operation with representatives from the Building and Construction Industry.
With 760 exhibitors and more than 18,800 visitors in 2001, the JEC COMPOSITES SHOW has definitely proved to be the leading international rendezvous for the composite sector. The JEC COMPOSITES SHOW is a place to discover new technology trends and innovations. It is also a business crossroads devoted to end markets.
