The third annual JEC Americas Composites Show took place at the Georgia World Congress Centre, Atlanta, US from 13 - 15 May 2014.
According to JEC Group, the event reflected the dynamic innovation unfolding in a region that represents nearly a third of the global composites industry. The show was held in conjunction with Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas. JEC Americas will again collaborate with Techtextil North America in 2015.
Mrs. Frédérique Mutel, Group President and CEO, JEC Group commented “We favour long-term relations. Our strategic partnership with TTNA is meant to gradually bring an increasing added value to our respective markets. We are very happy that the first outcomes are very positive. Moreover, choosing Houston as the next destination for our joint event happens to be totally in line with JEC’s mission to address every sector and every segment of the composites Industry. It allows us to get closer to clusters such as Energy & Environment, Oil & Gas, Pipes and Tanks, Wind Energy or to go further in our Aeronautic or Automotive networks.”
Dennis Smith, President, Messe Frankfurt added “Houston is the ideal location for our 2015 event as it represents a thriving business environment specifically in the fields of energy, aerospace, medical and other key manufacturing industries that are very relevant to the technical textile industry. Our collaboration once again with JEC also represents an ongoing initiative to bring related events together to add increased value to the attendee experience.”
