  • Pre-arranged Business meetings
  • Construction Composites Circle


Architects and builders are always seeking for more flexibility, important level of freedom, lightweight, low energy consumption, infrastructure, time savings for repair and installation… Composites applications in civil engineering, building and bridges are numerous to reduce installation time, handling, repair and lifecycle costs, reduce weight and improve corrosion and durability. This is the reason why JEC World has developed a full program to address construction industry challenges.

This full program will include technical conferences, round tables, innovative area and pre-arranged business meetings. To name a few events of this program:

  • on Wednesday March 13th, one session of technical conferences focuses on Architecture, Building, Construction & Infrastructure: fast, economic lasting and sustainable solutions with speakers from ENSA, Aimplas, Acell, Hexion, StrucTeam…;
  • on Thursday March 14th, the Agora stage hosts the Construction Composites Circle with an exclusive keynote presentation of world’s renowned architect Carlo Ratti on the “Third Skin” followed by a discussion welcoming leaders from Acciona, Bouygues Construction, Owens Corning, Sicomin,… on the opportunities and challenges for composites in these sectors.
  • During the three days of the show, the Composites Exchange program presents workshops for building among which Technology enabling manufacturers with novel monolithic panels for external cladding applications;

In terms of innovation, building professionals will be able to discover more than 30 innovative parts within the Building planet, from tools, to a real house 100% made of composites material, as well as solutions for bridges, anti-flooding barrier…. Without mentioning the Innovation awards finalists, among which in the Construction & Infrastructure category, Arkema for its Bendable TP Composites reinforcement for concrete, Gazechim Composite for the contribution of nanotechnology in composites, Solico Engineering for its composite dike stabilization systems… Winners will be named on Wednesday at 4pm in the Agora stage.

Finally, building professionals can discover within the 1.300 exhibitors some solutions, processes dedicated to their challenges, as well as join the Composites in Action for Construction presenting the most recent scientific and technologic developments in this sector.
