JEC SA has set up two meetings at the JEC Composites Show 2002 (April 9-10-11, 2002) that will focus on the Automotive Industry. One is an Automotive Forum and the other, an Automotive Exhibition.
The Automotive Forum will take place on Wednesday, April 10 from 10am to 12pm. It will focus on Automotive Design and Composites. The Forum will start with an overview of composite solutions in the automotive field (key advantages and key applications), before proposing a series of case studies that focus on design. Car manufacturers will express their present and future needs and how these affect the design component. Each will also elaborate on one of the challenges facing them and explain how it has been met, from design to production. During the 3 days of the JEC Composites Show 2002, the Automotive Exhibition will present cars, concept cars and automotive composite parts. Visitors will be able to discover the innovative applications in the automotive field, including the brand new Renault Vel Satis and the full-scale model of an all-composites car.
The main objective of the Automotive Design & Composites Forum and the Exhibition is to highlight the major automotive markets 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 automotive 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.
