Indeed, the American Composites market represents nearly a third of the global composites industry (32 percent in value and 28 percent in volume)” says Mrs Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President and CEO. “Our vocation is to promote composites materials and expand composites markets. Through Knowledge and Networking, we fulfill our mission all over the year highlighting Composites Innovation. Professionnals benefit from our capacity to detect Innovation and foster connections worldwide. Last May, the spring event in Atlanta (collocated with Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas) attracted 759 exhibiting companies and over 9,000 professional visits. The Fall event, next October 28-29, will gather a global crowd at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center”.


“Innovation” in Composites Design, Simulation and Carbon as a watchword

More than 30 Speakers mainly from America and Europe will present advanced papers over the 2 days of conferences discussing about:

  • Changing perspectives in Composite Design
    • Time gain in Composite Design
    • Behavior Checking and Predictions
  • From behavior simulation to product development
    • Performance assessment
    • Product optimization via predictive simulation
    • Analytic decision making
  • Outlook for Carbon composites usage in Aerospace
    • Reducing fuel consumption by light-weighting
    • Innovative wing design
    • Next generation jet-engines
  • Outlook for Carbon composites usage in Automotive
    • Reducing cycle-times
    • High-speed manufacturing technologies
    • Opportunities of the composites market

Moreover, JEC Innovation Awards will be handed out to 4 categories:

  • Enabling Technologies
  • Innovative Applications
  • Academic Achievements
  • Student Award


Table-tops, Networking sessions and a Simulation Leadership Circle

The event will also offer a perfect environment to network with quality professionals from around the world. More than 50 table-tops will showcase Composites companies, Academics and Universities.
Also, for the first time in Boston, a Simulation Composites Circle will be organized, gathering the leading International experts from the Simulation sector and valued keynote speakers. This Leadership Composite Circle follows the successful Automotive Composites Circles previously held in Atlanta, Boston and Paris.
