More than 230 exhibiting companies from Asia, Europe and America were represented at the 10th JEC Asia exhibition in Seoul last month.
The event registered a record number of 6,271 professional visits from 42 countries, according to the JEC Group, with the top visiting countries being South Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan and France.
“The 10th anniversary of JEC Asia marked a real turning point for the composites industry in Asia Pacific,” says Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO. “Not only have we gathered the whole composites value chain in one place for three days, but we also succeeded to apply our new strategy towards end-users as we have welcomed professionals from composites-using industries such as aerospace, automotive, electronic and electric equipment, construction, sports and leisure and many more. Based on the outcomes of this session, we have already decided to double the surface of the event on one unique floor to be able to accommodate more exhibitors and innovative parts in 2018.”
“We very much appreciated the support of local authorities such as the City of Seoul who did its utmost to welcome international attendees and top buyers, as well as the Korean composites industry in general for its massive participation," adds Christian Strassburger, JEC Asia Director. "Also, we were very proud to host the 12th International Carbon Festival and we believe that our synergies contributed to such a successful event.”
JEC Asia will return to Seoul on 14-16 November 2018.
