Knoxville, Tennessee: A key location

JEC Forums Knoxville 2016

Choosing Knoxville as a location for JEC Forums’ International Conference on Automotive Technologies was an obvious decision considering its strategic position in the composites industry. Indeed, the University of Tennessee situated in Knoxville is one of the lead institutions that are part of IACMI, whose main focuses and trends are automotive manufacturing. The latter fits perfectly with the kind of knowledge JEC Forums aims to bring to this conference event, and with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) only a few miles away, their Carbon Fiber Technology Facility at the forefront of innovation and research, is within very easy access.   

JEC Forums 2016 will take place at the Crowne Plaza. It is in close proximity with organizations such as Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and University of Tennessee Knoxville, and is within easy walking distance of Old City, Market Square, etc. After having spent time sharing knowledge and networking at the JEC Forums International Conference on Automotive Technologies, enjoy the Knoxville area and seize the opportunity to attend the football game on October 15th at the University of Tennessee.
