JEC Group states that the 49th edition of JEC Europe, which runs 11th – 13th March, Paris, France, will be the show’s largest to date.

According to JEC, this reflects the new step that the industry is making, passing to another level of its life. JEC explains that the sector is becoming more mature and penetrating new industries, stimulating competition.

JEC Europe 2014 sees the event spanning two halls for the first time at Portes de Versailles, occupying 54,400sqm.

JEC has designed three new programmes that will be rolled out for all JEC activities starting in Europe, then in America and Asia. The new programmes include:

  • A Top Buyers’ Programme aimed at facilitating contacts between major purchasers and suppliers.
  • Composites Leadership Circles that bring together decision-makers in the different markets. During JEC Europe 2014, an Automotive Leadership Circle will take place on the second day.
  • A New Generation Programme that rewards student research.

During the show, guided tours to discover innovations and latest trends in composites based on natural fibres will be organised, allowing visitors to meet and discuss with exhibitors in this field and have deeper understanding of their products and solutions.

JEC Group explains that the Thermoplastics Conference will be upgraded with a tour of exhibiting companies with this expertise followed by networking opportunities.

The company states these new services will add to JEC Group existing offering including its Innovation Showcase, designed to promote the sector’s innovations, the I.C.S. Conferences led by composite-industry experts to develop knowledge sharing, the Innovation Awards program, business meetings, a job center, e-letters & magazines, publications and an information web portal, etc.

With a strong conference I.C.S. (Innovative Composites Summit) gathering eminent speakers, the main topics in 2014 are carbon and thermoplastic solutions. JEC also touches upon current thematics like offshore energy and hybrid structures.

JEC Group states that by moving the show on to two floors Pavilion 7 will improve visitor’s experience at JEC Europe. New electronic tools and digital devices will help and guide the attendees, such as dynamic screens, interactive maps onsite and smartphone applications.
