The Future of Composites in Construction will return in 2019
The event was entirely dedicated to the current and future developments of Composites Materials in Building & Construction, showcasing Innovations that have been changing the way end-users, such as architects or designers, construct buildings and infrastructures. “We are very happy that our end-users' approach to the industry elicits positive feedbacks. For this particular event we managed to attract architects and designers who could learn and experience how composite materials could change their way of working tomorrow, offering them endless possibilities. We will continue to target the Users of Composites in our next events.” comments Ms. Frédérique MUTEL, JEC Group President and CEO.

Indeed, JEC Group will return to Chicago to focus on the Transportation Industry with The Future of Composites in Transportation in June 2018 and we have already planned to stay in Chicago in June 2019 for another Future of Composites in Construction”, adds Nicolas BAUDRY, North America Events Director for JEC Group.


Attendee Statements

Ron Blackburn, Marketing Coordinator - Magnum Venus Products

“The trade show was well run and seemed to be thoughtfully planned, with time for exhibits, demonstrations, presentations and meetings. The trade show itself was very successful for our company. We interacted and networked with many different customers and potential customers, resulting in an encouraging number of leads and connections. For this being the first trade show of its kind, JEC Construction went very smoothly, and even exceeded expectations in many ways.
We are excited that JEC Group is now promoting industry-specific events in the US and if this event is any indicator, future events will be a great success”.

“As the first event of its kind in North America the conference exceeded our expectation by the quality of the symposium as well as the level of interest and interactions its generated. This was a very good first step toward the ultimate goal of democratizing composite materials in the construction industry”.
