JEC Group and MunichExpo Veranstaltungs GmbH are wagering on synergy by setting up a partnership for the Composites trade fair, which will take place this week at the Materialica exhibition.
As part of the Composites 2006 trade fair, JEC will hold a “Composites Design & Innovation workshop” on October 12, 2006, from 9 to 12 am.
According to JEC General Manager Frédérique Mutel, “The JEC Group’s strategy is to work through a network to open up the markets and foster the exchange of experience. JEC and Materialica’s co-operation targets a vast market that winds up benefiting from a wider offering. This partnership is the opportunity to present a dynamic European composite industry that is open to the world. We are delighted about this co-operation.”
As MunichExpo Veranstaltungs GmbH CEO Robert Metzger explained, “These two events represent good synergy for exhibitors and visitors, and are perfectly complementary. They are also a unique opportunity for resin and additive producers, and for machine and new technology designers, to export to Germany and emerging Eastern European countries.”
The Materialica exhibition runs in Munich from October 10-12, 2006.
