Even before the opening, success is in the air for the 2007 JEC Composites Show with increases in stand space and pre-registered visitors compared to the 2006 show.
Some of the high points of the JEC Composites Show 2007 include new forums such as the Biocomposites Forum; a wider choice of topics around engineering polymers, short- and long-run production, RTM Light, structural preforms, and stereolithography; a focus on 21st-century products, including wind turbines, cars, business jets, jumbo jets, civil engineering, and land/air/marine infrastructures; and lectures on design and composites.
The forums also pick up on the supply-chain theme of the show, with manufacturers and customers presenting supply and demand points of view. The speakers come both from small, innovative companies and from large groups such as Boeing, Dassault, MarcoPolo, and C. Yacht Designers. The new Biocomposites Forum deals with performance materials that are made entirely from renewable resources.
