JEC World, arguably the largest international composite show, has set several new records after moving to the new Paris Nord Villepinte venue this year, with a total exhibition space of 62,000sqm, 1,300 exhibitors and 36,946 professional visitors.

"Composite materials continue to become more widespread," said Frédérique Mutel, President and CEO of JEC Group, the show's organizer. "In a world where energy savings and recyclability are sought, composites seem to stand out as one of the best answers. Innovative solutions must be found for current and upcoming challenges in terms of higher performance, lower weight, reduced costs and processing time, and of course, addressing the pressing matters of environmental concerns."

This year's event also featured the launch of four Innovation Planets, each one addressing a specific end-user market (the Aero Planet, the Auto Planet sponsored by Hexion, the Sports Planet and the Sustainable Planet). Attendees could see, touch and experience Innovative composite parts, observe demos, and ask questions about the innovations.

Over three days, 11 top-notch conferences were organized, some of them in partnership with Inovev, Cetim, e-Xstream, Stanford University, Onera, Composites Innovation Cluster, AZL and Dassault Systemes. The 30 technical sales presentations and the 40+ presentations on the "Planets" also covered a vast range of current and future composite topics.

A large delegation of Korean visitors and exhibitors showed up to represent the Republic of Korea, the event's Country of Honor. They showcased their latest advances, particularly in carbon.

Other noteworthy events included the JEC Innovation Awards with its 29 prizewinners; the Automotive Composites Circle; the Live-Demo zones; the Composites in Action areas; and the 1,950 B2B Meetings that were organized.

The next JEC World will be held in Paris, France from March 14-16, 2017.
