JEC Asia will hold its 8th annual session at the SUNTEC centre in Singapore on October 20-22, 2015; its main theme will be Business Opportunities in Asia.
“Today, Asia represents almost 50% of the global composites market in value. Asia emerged into a prime driver of growth for the composites industry and will further consolidate its leadership,” says Mrs Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President & CEO. “This is one of the reasons JEC Group invested in this region for the benefit of the Composites Industry. JEC teams supported by our office in Singapore have developed fruitful synergies with industries, associations and academics in Asia. Our mission is to foster Business by facilitating connections. The market is abounding in opportunities.”
During 3 days, delegates are expected from all over Asia including South Korea, Japan, Thailand, China and Malaysia. They will also meet attendees and exhibitors from Europe, America and the Middle East as more than 49 countries are represented (75% from Asia/Pacific).
According to JEC, the Business Meetings program that puts together exhibitors and key buyers enhances the networking experience offered by this event as the quality of the matchmaking service keeps on improving year after year since 2008 when the event was launched. So much so that many deals and contracts have been signed on JEC Asia during the Show.
Additionally, JEC explains that China has been designated Country Guest Of Honor for JEC Asia 2015. A significant delegation of exhibitors and attendees is expected to represent the rich variety that China has to offer to the composites industry. Also, various cultural events will be organised to highlight this dynamic economy.
“The number 8 is a lucky number in China. I am sure the 8th session of JEC Asia will be successful and prosperous for every participant,” says Mrs Mutel.
