JEC Group explains the event will also offer a perfect environment to network with quality professionals from around the world. More than 50 table-tops will showcase Composites companies, Academics and Universities.Also, for the first time in Boston, a Simulation Composites Circle will be organised, gathering the leading International experts from the Simulation sector and valued keynote speakers.
“Indeed, the American Composites market represents nearly a third of the global composites industry (32% in value and 28% in volume)” says Mrs Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO. “Our vocation is to promote composites materials and expand composites markets. Through Knowledge and Networking, we fulfill our mission all over the year highlighting Composites Innovation. Professionals benefit from our capacity to detect Innovation and foster connections worldwide.
