Good growth expected for JEC World 2017 in Paris

The leading annual Composites Show in the World, JEC World, will once more move in 2 Halls of Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center for 3 days of Networking and Knowledge sharing among Composites professionals and new users to be. Attendees from +100 countries will be hosted. JEC World 2017 will take place from March 14-16, 2017, Paris Nord Villepinte, France

“Innovation is at the centre of the Show.” says Mrs. Frédérique MUTEL, JEC Group President & CEO. “Incremental or disruptive innovation in composites makes the success of JEC World. The new paradigms of our century are lightness, resistance, flexibility, customization, cycles acceleration. Composites meet this quest. During the last twelve months, we have worked hard to analyze end-users’ requirements. We have shaped the show to facilitate the interaction between the composites industry and the final market. New populations such as architects, creators, developers, designers and style engineers, should join. Consequently, we expect a significant growth for JEC World 2017.” she adds.

Four PLANETS to showcase Composites Innovation

JEC 1Following the success of the « Planets » that appeared last year in the show, JEC World are bringing them back in even bigger areas with brand new parts and new end-users focuses. Thus, attendees will find again the AERO Planet (sponsored by Huntsman) and the AUTO Planet (sponsored by Hexion, KDX, and UBC – Crosslink), and discover 2 new Planets i.e. the BUILDING Planet and the BETTER LIVING Planet that will include Composites parts that are and will improve people’s everyday life.
