JEC Asia is returning to South Korea on 14-16 November 2018.
“We are very grateful for the support of the industry, government bodies and academics, regarding the evolution of JEC Asia, that has led to the success of the platform," says Christian Strassburger, Events Director Asia for JEC Group. "Indeed, 90% of the show floor is already booked which bodes well for the preparation of the event. On top of that, the event is truly international, as 45% of the exhibitors are coming from outside Asia. JEC Asia will welcome pavilions from Germany, France, Italy, Japan, China and Singapore, as well as the major composite clusters in Korea.”
The future of mobility is a hot topic for composite materials and JEC Asia will represent, promote and provide information about the increasing integration of composites in automotive developments. Numerous programmes will be offered, such as a conference on Composites in Automotive, a Leadership Composites Circle, an Auto Planet showcasing parts, a B2B meetings programme, a JEC Innovation Award category and site visits of composite-related facilities.
For the second time, JEC Asia will host the International Carbon Festival, organised by KCTECH and the Jeonju region, with conferences and international speakers.
