JEC Composites Show: Record Attendance
The 45th JEC Composites Show that took place from April 13 to 15 in Paris, France ushers in a new leap forward in the composite industry. Both the Show and the conference programme focused on innovation and were packed to the rafters with two-figure growth in conference exhibitors, observers and visitors. The other programmes (Business Suites, ShowCase, Demos, Technical Sales Presentations, Pre-arranged Meetings, books launching, Press Service, Managers Club) also posted high attendance numbers.
The Show hosted more than 1,000 exhibitor companies. The number of visitors is 27 500 visitors, public and journalists with a growth of visitors from North America (+33%), Europe (+35%) and Japan/ASEAN (+34%).
Today, the composite industry generates EUR 60 billion in sales. With annual growth at 5%, this figure could reach a massive EUR 80 billion by 2015.
