JEC Asia wraps up eight annual session

JEC Asia Composites Show & Conferences wrapped up its 8th annual session with a noticeable growth in attendance from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, from Australia and New Zealand, South Korea outlining and representative attendance from China, this year Country Guest of Honour.

“The Asian composites market amounts to 44.28 B. S $ (Singapore dollars),” said Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group president & CEO. “In value, it represented 43% of the worldwide market in 2014. The demand made on materials has become greater in Asia.

“Investment in composites has increased and relative costs have improved. This is driving higher growth in both innovation and composites consumption in Asia. Another dimension of the Asian composites market is its complexity and heterogeneity. Asia needs an international platform to present this diversity. JEC Asia plays this unique role.”

For this edition, the JEC Group created a new formula to allow every participant to participate in an enriched programme offering three keynote speeches, Innovation Awards, B2B meetings, high-level conferences, an Aerospace Leadership Circle, Exhibition Hall, Demo Zone, New Products Exhibits, Posters Session, the Job Center, Composites Tours and plant visits, the Exhibitors’ Reception, a Golf Simulator, the VIP Press Club and numerous networking opportunities.

During the three days of the annual event, more than 300 qualified B2B Meetings were organised by JEC Group, bringing closer together exhibitors and key buyers.

Also, numerous networking sessions took place onsite during the conferences breaks, with successful exchanges with the greatly appreciated speakers.
