JEC Korea 2021 co-located with Carbon Korea and hybrid event with JEC Korea Connect

A 3-days conference and networking event for the Korean composites community.

From November 3-5, 2021, JEC Korea 2021 will be held at the COEX and online, via JEC Korea Connect, simultaneously with the first edition of Carbon Korea. Due to the COVID situation, for its 14th edition and 4th time in Seoul, JEC KOREA will bring together exhibitors and attendees in one single hall for both exhibiting companies and conferences, and in a hybrid format with JEC Korea Connect, including digital booths and conferences in livestreaming, to better network and share knowledge.

More than 50 domestic and foreign industry representatives will exhibit in Seoul and online during three days, among which: Hyosung, Toray Korea, Jeollabuk-do pavilion, Leresche, Pinette, MFtech of France, ZSK of Germany, HOS-TECHNIK of Austria. Through this, the entire value chain of composite materials, including large companies as well as small and medium-sized enterprises, gather in one place to showcase their latest technologies and innovations.

New this year: Carbon Korea, CO2 Zero by Carbon Materials, will be co-located with JEC Korea

The Korea Carbon Industry Promotion Agency, established as a governmental agency under the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy in March 2021, will launch Carbon Korea, CO2 Zero by Carbon Materials, to support the national carbon strategy to revitalize the composite material market and join JEC Korea, as long-time partner. Carbon Korea is supported by the Korea Carbon Industry Promotion Agency, supervised by the Korea Carbon Nano Association, and the auspices of the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy. The aim of this new event is to build partnership with unlimited collaboration and cooperation amongst all participants, such as officials, students, researchers, entrepreneurs, and experts to discuss topics related to carbon material 3D printing, carbon products exhibition on the theme of carbon neutrality (Earth cleaning and cooling), and carbon industry professional training programmes.

An impressive programme of conferences accessible on site and online

JEC KOREA Technical Conference +* ICF International Carbon Festival will unite 20 global speakers for 3 days at the core of the event, as well as online through JEC Korea Connect, improving the composites skills of all attendees.

About 20 global speakers from Korea and abroad (France, UK, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, USA, Spain, Netherlands, Japan, Singapore) will participate. It will be a high-quality exchange of technical market trends and innovation under the themes of:
• New Energy / hydrogen and carbon
• Smart Manufacturing
• New mobility and aerospace

This year, to ease the exchange and benefit from this high qualitative program, the conferences will be free of charge and simultaneously translated (English, Korean) for onsite and online attendees.
All conferences will be broadcasted live, and all replays will be available on JEC Web TV after the event.
