The 9th annual edition of JEC Asia in Singapore concluded on a positive note for the Composites markets in Asia Pacific as the event counted record attendance and revealed strategic move for its 2017 edition.
JEC Asia International Composites Event closed the doors of its 9th annual edition in Singapore after three days of intense networking and knowledge sharing among composites professionals from Asia, Europe and America with the Kingdom of Thailand as country of Honour for this edition.
“The Asian Composites market is very dynamic and we witnessed it once again on JEC Asia. We were very happy to welcome attendees from more than 40 countries and see the evolution of their needs and interest. Thus, we have included more and more services dedicated to the End-Users Industries who participated to the B2B Meetings we organised onsite. Also, we have created a startup competition to encourage the entrepreneurship of young generation in Composites. Three companies won prizes that will boost their development from free offices to cash prizes. The winners of this new competition are: Five Oceans, TnK Co and AirGo Design,” says Ms. Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President & CEO.
“We are very confident that the 2017 session of JEC Asia in Seoul will be very successful as many Korean institutions already committed to help us adapt this platform to the regional needs. The City of Seoul supports actively JEC Asia in doing its utmost to welcome the usual expected international crowd and certainly attract new attendees,” comments Mr Christian Strassburger, JEC Asia Show Director.
JEC Group is proud of having already successfully sealed partnerships and agreements with Korean government bodies, clusters, companies and Universities. The involvement of the whole composites value chain in Korea augurs well for the upcoming International Composites Event.
JEC Asia International Composites Event 2017 will take place at the COEX Center in Seoul, Republic of Korea, next 1-3 November 2017.
