JEC World 2016 in Paris will move to a new location and adds new themes
The largest composites exhibition in the world relocates in a bigger venue with a new name: JEC World. Taking into account the growing demand of its exhibitors, the event will be able to increase its space in a controlled and monitored Parc Paris Nord Villepinte, from March 9 – 10, 2016. The new format based on end-users
JEC World: new location, new format, new programs! The exhibition and the conferences address the whole composites value chain from raw materials to intermediates and above all, end-using Industries highly consumer of composites materials such as Aerospace, Automotive, Energy or Sports & Leisure. JEC World will give room and space to these sectors, offering for the first time 4 “planets “ organised around a galleria of innovations but also discussions and networking areas.
“Composites have the power to change the world. Last year, we launched “Composites for Better Living”, an expo within the exhibition in order to present composite objects that enhance the quality of our lives. In 2016, we will go further and explore how composites respond to the challenges of this century: energy, sustainability, and environment. Therefore, we will exhibit materials, technologies and products that are increasingly energy efficient, resources- saving and reusable. JEC Group launches 4 NEW Spaces called Planets, inviting visitors to indulge their curiosity and explore the Future: Aerospace Planet, Automotive Planet, and Sustainable Planet. In 2016, the “Composites for Better Living” Planet will be dedicated to Sports & Leisures. Our new format should reward and inspire our ever growing numbers of visitors. JEC World 2016 will be the place where innovative minds can find even more diverse and often unexpected perspectives on Composites and can share their discoveries with others. ”explains Ms Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO.
The Republic of Korea, Country will be the guest of Honour. In recent years, South Korean firms have been at the forefront of several noteworthy composite material developments recognised worldwide, in particular for their Carbon breakthroughs. Moreover, the close relationships of the Golden triangle made of Government, Industry and Research together with Material Sciences and Engineering is vital in the development of Composites in a country. These models of virtuous circles have proven to be positive and fruitful in many countries and South Korea is one very good example.
