After last year’s positive feedback, the JEC Group has again decided to schedule 6 forums during the 2007 JEC Composites Show in Paris (April, 3-4-5).
“For several years now, the end-users forums have been a source of key information on new composites uses for professionals attendees. They encourage dialogue between industrialists and end-users in six major sectors where composites materials are increasingly used.” reports Patrice Sinthon, JEC Group Marketing & Communications Manager.
The forums are based on case studies and talks from more than 50 internationally-renowned specialists with Research, Design, Engineering and Manufacturing backgrounds. They give access to strategic information on trends, innovation and outlooks in the following sectors: Marine, Biocomposites, Automotive, Construction, Aeronautics and Land Transport, and allow attendees to benchmark a potential sector.
The full programme of the 2007 forums is attached and available online:
