The organizers of JEC Asia said that the event had a record number of attendees.

‘The Asian composites market is very dynamic and we witnessed it once again on JEC Asia,’ said Frédérique Mutel, JEC group president & CEO. ‘We were very happy to welcome attendees from more than 40 countries and see the evolution of their needs and interest. Thus, we have included more and more services dedicated to the end-users industries who participated to the B2B meetings we organized onsite. Also, we have created a startup competition to encourage the entrepreneurship of young generation in composites.’

‘We are very confident that the 2017 session of JEC Asia in Seoul will be very successful as many Korean institutions already committed to help us adapt this platform to the regional needs, added Christian Strassburger, JEC Asia show director.

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