Good growth expected next week in Paris for JEC World 2017

JEC World 2017
7 Mar 2017
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.

“Innovation is at the center 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.

4 Planets to showcase composites innovation

JEC World 2017 - Innovation Planets
Following 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. Concerning the Building Market, during the show, JEC Group publishes the first book ever issued on Composites Solutions in Construction.


Automotive Composites Circle

JEC World 2017 - Automotive Composites Circle
The exclusive gathering of top level Producers, Manufacturers and Users of Composites in the Automotive Industry will take place on the 2nd day of the Show. The by-invitation-only presentations and networking session will highlight the topic “The collaborative process in the automotive Industry, learning experience from the State of Michigan”. Renowned speakers from The Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Faurecia, Ford Research & Innovation Center, IACMI, Leichtbau, Continental Structural Plastics or Bcomp will take the stage to exchange a few ideas. Also, Leilani MÜNTER, Electric GT Pilot, will give a speech at this occasion.

The Automotive Composites Circle is sponsored by The Michigan Economic Development Corporation and Pure Michigan.


6 Conferences to learn about the latest trends in Composites

During the 3 days of the event, 6 conferences involving 53 speakers from around the world will provide the most updated content the composites Industry could reveal. 3 of them will be dedicated to end-using markets:

  • Aeronautics: Multiscale Modeling for Behavioral Predictions
  • Current Trends in the Automotive Industry
  • Composites as a Worthy Alternative to Traditional Materials in the Construction Industry

The conferences are sponsored by Altair


“We are very confident with JEC World 2017 session as the show floor has been fully booked for weeks and registration figures are increasing compared to 2016 which was already an exceptional session.“ says Anne Manuèle HEBERT, JEC World Show Director. “There are so many events not be missed during JEC World such as the new STARTUP BOOSTER program on day 1, the JEC Innovation Awards Ceremony on day 2 with keynote speaker Thomas COVILLE, new solo round-the-world record on maxi trimaran and many other special events. Three days will be hardly enough to cover JEC World 2017 and its very complete offer.” she concludes.
