JEC is locating its Paris, France, exhibition to a bigger venue with a new name: JEC World.
Taking into account the growing demand of its exhibitors, JEC says the event will be able to increase its space in a controlled and monitored Parc Paris Nord Villepinte.
JEC explains its new location, new format, new programs; the exhibition and the conferences address the whole Composites value chain from raw materials to intermediates and above all, end-using Industries highly consumer of composites materials such as Aerospace, Automotive, Energy or Sports & Leisure.
JEC says it will give room and space to these sectors, offering for the first time 4 ”planets” organised around a gallery of innovations but also discussions and networking areas.
“Composites have the power to change the world. Last year, we launched ‘Composites for Better Living,’ an expo within the exhibition in order to present composite objects that enhance the quality of our lives. In 2016, we will go further and explore how composites respond to the challenges of this century: energy, sustainability, and environment. That’s why, in 2016, we will go further and explore how composites respond to the challenges of this century: energy, sustainability, and environment. Therefore, we will exhibit materials, technologies and products that are increasingly energy efficient, resources-saving and reusable. JEC Group launches 4 NEW Spaces called Planets, inviting visitors to indulge their curiosity and explore the Future: Aerospace Planet, Automotive Planet, and Sustainable Planet. In 2016, the ‘Composites for Better Living’ Planet will be dedicated to Sports & Leisures. Our new format should reward and inspire our ever growing numbers of visitors. JEC World 2016 is to be the place where innovative minds can find even more diverse and often unexpected perspectives on Composites and can share their discoveries with others” explains Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO.
According to JEC, in recent years, South Korean firms have been at the forefront of several noteworthy composite material developments that have been recognised worldwide, in particular for their Carbon breakthroughs. Moreover, the close relationships of the Golden triangle made of Government, Industry and Research together with Material Sciences and Engineering is vital in the development of Composites in a country. These models of virtuous circles have proven to be positive and fruitful in many countries and South Korea is one very good example.
JEC World will take place at Paris Nord Villepinte, France, from the 8-10 March 2016.
