JEC Asia 2016
15 Nov 2016
For the first time, Seoul will host an International Industrial Show, JEC Asia International Composites Event, in November 1, 2, 3, 2017

A great revelation has been made today on November 15, 2016 at SUNTEC Center Singapore during JEC Asia International composites event Opening Ceremony in front of an audience full of Composites professionals, ambassadors, Academics and End-users attendees.

Indeed, Ms. Frédérique Mutel, President and CEO of JEC Group announced the change of location in 2017 of the annual Asia-Pacific Composites event, namely in Seoul, Republic of Korea.

“Since 2008 we have been organizing our annual Composites meeting in Singapore, a big hub for business in Asia Pacific. One of JEC Group main strength is to adapt rapidly to the Industry needs as we constantly listen and watch for the developments, innovation and requests of the market. When the Korean Composites Industry asked us to consider organizing JEC Asia in the Republic of Korea few years ago, we have been working hand in hand with them to build a tailor-made event that is ready to be launched in South Korea next year, in November 1-3, 2017, symbolically for JEC Asia 10th session.”  she says.

“As an observer and representative of the Industry, we could not help but to notice that the development of Composites materials could only be possible thanks to the close relationship of the Golden triangle made of Government, Industry and Research together with Material Sciences and Engineering. These models of virtuous circles have proven to be positive and fruitful in many countries and South Korea is a very good example. After having signed a few years ago a MoU with the KCTECH, we are happy to sign another one today with the Jeonbuk TechnoPark in presence of the H.E. Mr. Lee Sang-Deok, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea in Singapore, Mr. Roh Inho, CEO of KOTRA in Singapore, Pr. Sung Ha, Professor at Hanyang University and Mr. Du-ock Beck President of Jeonbuk TechnoPark.”  she adds.

“We are excited to bring JEC Asia to another great capital city in Asia. The City of Seoul is already very committed to help us hosting this international event with attendees from more than 40 countries next November 1-3, 2017. Moreover Seoul has the perfect infrastructure to welcome exhibitors and attendees with the high-quality standards that JEC Group offers at each of our event.”, comments Christian Strassburger, JEC Asia Show Director.

JEC Asia International Composites Event 2017 will take place at the COEX Center in Seoul, Republic of Korea, next November 1-3, 2017.
