JEC Group and the Thai Composites Association (TCA) report that their third co-organised annual event welcomed 181 delegates from 21 countries, 46% of which were OEMs and composites end-users. The two-day conference in Bangkok was followed by site visits and laboratory demonstrations.
The 19 speakers from 13 countries presented the trends, innovations and opportunities for composites materials in the construction and architecture industry. The presenters included Duangrit Bunnag, Owner and Founder at Duangrit Bunnag Architect in Thailand, who shared his view on New Architectural Typology.
“Considering the outcomes of this event, we at JEC Group, believe that composite materials have great opportunities in the construction industry," reports Christian Strassburger, JEC Group Events Director for Asia. "The feedbacks from the many attending architects and end-users are very positive and we will keep on developing this topic on our next events.”
“We are delighted to hear such positive feedback from all participants," says Danu Chotikapanich, TCA President. "I would like to thank in particular all speakers who have done an excellent job. The continuity of the event into its third year also leads local businesses to become more international and helps bring the private, academic and governmental sector together. With roughly half of the participants coming from abroad, Composites Asia is becoming a great composites event for the whole South East Asia.”
