10th JEC Asia composites show closes with record visitors


JEC Asia strategic move from Singapore to Seoul really paid off, says the organiser, French JEC Group. More than 230 exhibiting companies from Asia, Europe and America were represented at the event that was organised over three floors of the COEX Exhibition Centre of Seoul. The event also registered a record number of 6,271 professional visitors from 42 countries; the top visiting countries being South Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan and France.

“The 10th anniversary of JEC Asia marked a real turning point for the composites industry in Asia Pacific. Not only have we gathered the whole composites value chain in one place for 3 days, but we also succeeded to apply our new strategy towards end-users as we have welcomed professionals from composites-using industries such as Aerospace, Automotive, Electronic & Electric Equipment, Construction, Sports & Leisure and many more,” commented Frédérique MUTEL, JEC Group President/CEO.

“Based on the outcome of this session, we have already decided to double the surface of the event on one unique floor to be able to accommodate more exhibitors and innovative parts in 2018,” she went on to say.

The event also hosted the 12th International Carbon Festival.

The next JEC Asia event will return to Seoul from 14-16 November 2018.
