The 2024 edition of JEC World, the leading trade exhibition for composite materials and their applications, is already gearing up for success. Ahead of its opening in three months, more than 1,300 exhibitors, including 116 newcomers, and 43,500 visitors are expected. With an exhibition surface area of 76,000 sq. m. in 2024, this must-attend event for industry professionals once again confirms its appeal, both in France and internationally.
JEC World 2024: exhibitors from all over the world take part
JEC World 2024 is already almost fully booked, with over 1,300 French and international exhibitors having already confirmed their participation (up 8% versus 2023). Among them are major industry leaders such as 3M, Airbus, Daher, Hexcel, Mitsubishi, Owens Corning, Porchers Industries, SGL Technologies, Solvay, Teijin Carbon and Toray Advanced Composites. Furthermore, 116 new exhibitors are set to join the event, including ACCIONA Construcción S.A., BÜFA Composite Systems, ExxonMobil, Geiss® AG, Kaon Polymer and Sealants Co.,Ltd. and Sekisui aerospace. Today, JEC World can confirm the presence of 49 countries, including 27 international pavilions. Several countries are thus strengthening their presence at the event, including Germany, Austria, Belgium, China, South Korea, the United States, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Turkey. And as a further sign of the global industry’s interest in and enthusiasm for the show, this upcoming edition will feature the involvement of new exhibiting countries, such as Canada, Egypt, Georgia, and Serbia.
A rich and appealing program
43,500 visitors are expected to attend this new edition of JEC World, confirming its ability as an international trade show to bring together all the key players in the global composites industry around a rich, inspiring and rallying program. Its conference program will emphasize both the challenges of the industry as a whole and specific application sectors, particularly in the fields of wind energy, aerospace, and transportation. But that’s not all!
The JEC Startup Booster competitions, the JEC Innovation Awards, the Innovation Planets, the Discover Composites area… there’s no better way for visitors to experience a comprehensive overview of innovations in terms of processes, materials and products. Designed to encourage interactions and the sharing of ideas, these highlights will enable them to pinpoint emerging markets in the composites sector, as well as to discover new materials, products and processes. JEC World 2024 will also be an opportunity to witness live demonstrations featuring numerous machines and products on display. An approach reinforced this year by the creation of a dedicated demo zone, with several machines in action. Last but not least, to ensure industry decision-makers optimize their time over the three days of the exhibition, JEC World will provide a highly efficient program of tailor-made business meetings. A total of 8,000 meetings are expected this year, enabling participants who have identified their needs in advance of the show to meet new business partners.
Once again this year, Paris will be the capital of composites and advanced materials for a week, with the SAMPE Europe 2024 Summit on March 4 and JEC World from March 5 to 7.
