The high degree of interest in JEC World also lies in the fact that JEC World perpetually renews itself constantly. “Each year, new products and services are offered to Exhibitors and visitors. For instance, in 2017, the Startup Booster competition, the new planets, the electronic devices and the giant LED screen on the VIP Club, are some of our novelties and improvements that refined customer experience” comments Anne-Manuèle Hébert, Show Director of JEC World and European Shows.



JEC Group also welcomed special guests who are passionate with composites such as Greg LeMond, champion & cycling expert, Thomas Coville, new solo, round-the-world record on maxi trimaran, Leilani Münter, Electric GT Pilot, or Nandor Fa, Vendée Globe 8th place contestant.
