Composites show to be the largest for sector; presents new format in Paris


Next year, JEC World, the largest composites exhibition in the world, will be relocated to Paris Nord Villepinte, France, and held from 8-10 March 2016. Taking into account the growing demand of its exhibitors, the event will be able to increase its space up to 62,000 sq m at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, says the organiser JEC Group.

The three-day exhibition will also feature a new format, with the introduction of four new exhibition spaces organised around a galleria of innovations but also discussions and networking areas. The four new spaces called Planets, will be the Future: Aeronautics Planet, Automotive Planet, and Sustainable Planet. In 2016, the “Composites for Better Living” Planet will be dedicated to Sports & Leisure.

“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. That’s why, in 2016, we will take a step forward 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. Our new format should reward and inspire our ever growing numbers of visitors,” explains Mrs Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President/CEO.

Next year’s Country Guest of Honour will be South Korea, since South Korean firms have been at the forefront of several noteworthy composite material developments that have been recognised worldwide and in particular for their carbon breakthroughs.

The composites show will feature 1,300 exhibitors, 11 conferences, an innovation awards ceremony, 30+ technical sales presentations, 600+ B2B Meetings, and other programmes.

Furthermore, the show will highlight the Automotive Composites Circle. This year, the circle was highlighted with speeches from PSA, Toyota, Siemens and the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation.
