JEC Asia strategic move from Singapore to Seoul really paid off. More than 230 exhibiting companies from Asia, Europe and America were represented on the event that was organized over 3 floors of the COEX Exhibition Center of Seoul. The event registered a record number of 6,271 professional visits 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.” comments Ms. Frédérique MUTEL, JEC Group President and CEO.

“Based on the outcomes 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 adds.

 

“We very much appreciated the support of local authorities such as the City of Seoul who did its utmost to welcome international attendees and top buyers as well as the Korean Composites Industry in general for its massive participation. Also, we were very proud to host the 12th International Carbon Festival and we believe that our synergies contributed to such a successful event”, says Christian STRASSBURGER, JEC Asia Director.
