The annual meeting for the Asia-Pacific professionals of the composites industry, JEC Asia, took place from November 13-15, 2019 in Seoul/Korea. The event welcomed more than 200 exhibitors showcasing the latest innovations to more than 6,600 attendees from 49 countries.
JEC Asia 2019 held a sturdy conference program starting with the 14th International Carbon Festival, the Symposium on Carbon Materials, and Composite Technologies. A total of 40 international speakers expressed their views and shared their visions in the form of keynote presentations on composites applied to automotive and aeronautics.
With the support of MAI Carbon, a project of Carbon Composites e.V. (CCeV), Augsburg/Germany, and local universities, the Student Program was also a great success with more than 300 students attending specific conferences and getting to visit the show within a guided tour.
After 3 successful JEC Asia shows in Seoul, it has been officially announced that the new name of the event, JEC Korea, will come into effect as of 2020, in order to promote the Korean composites sector.
