JEC Americas 2012 is at last preparing to open its doors here this Nov. 7-9, 2012. The most keenly-anticipated composites industry gathering in North America will showcase the latest Innovations, facilitate dynamic knowledge transfer and promote networking within a region that represents the world’s largest global composites market, totalling $35 billion in revenues.
Moreover, JEC Americas is the only composites industry event in America that invites multiple Industries to encompass the entire composites value chain. Indeed, end-users in Aerospace, Automation, Automotive, Building & Construction, Transportation and Wind Energy, as well as raw material producers and software designers, have all confirmed their participation in this one-of-a-kind event.
JEC has built its reputation on the high value content it brings to every activity it undertakes, and JEC Americas will further this tradition when it opens its doors this November. Its activities will include the Innovative Composites Summit (I.C.S.) conferences, International Trade show, technical sales presentations, live demo zone, innovation awards, products showcase, technical posters, job center, business meetings, VIP club, press service and publication store.
No less than 100 conferences will be presented during JEC Americas. See Program
Esteemed experts from the Aerospace, Automotive, Wind & Solar Energy, Building & Construction, and Sports & Leisure industries will reveal their latest developments at the event. In parallel, topics that are of high concern in today’s composites industry will also be showcased, such as new manufacturing technologies, efficient design, carbon, thermoplastics and thermosets, bio-based composites, the industry’s legal environment, and active approaches to exporting innovation.
Automation will be largely represented in a dedicated Demo Zone that will be the center of attention of the show. It will demonstrate, for example, how to produce large series of carbon composite component (Apple iPad or Samsung Galaxy back cover) by compression molding using induction fast heat and cool technology.
The famous JEC Innovation Awards ceremony will recognize nine winners and their partners for leading composites developments in categories such as Automotive, Carbon, Construction, Energy, Aerospace, Sports & Leisure, Process, Software and Recycling. The Innovation Showcase will display some of the award winners’ technologies, as well as the most innovative composite parts to be found in the industry.
