Full program of “EXPERIENCE COMPOSITES – powered by JEC Group”, the new event for Composites professionals and End-Users.
Premiere of the International event on Fiber Composite Materials
September 21-23, 2016 – Augsburg, Germany
Augsburg, September 12, 2016 – The inaugural session of the new plateform that aroused from the unique partnership of JEC Group, Messe Augsburg and Carbon Composites promises to be very intense.
“The synergies of the 3 co-organizers have resulted in an event that is tailored-made to the local needs of the Industry but at an international scale. Indeed, companies, research centers and institutions from Europe, America and Asia have confirmed their participation and Augsburg will be the center point for Composites professionals next September 21-23, 2016.”, explains Mrs Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group President & CEO. “Following our strategy to target End-Users, this specific location will secure the participation of professionals from Industries such as Aerospace, Automotive & Transport, Construction & Infrastructure, Machine & Plant Manufacturing, Medical Engineering and Wind Energy.” She adds.
The new Meeting place for global Composites professionals in Europe.
The programme of events is packed with networking opportunities for every attendees. Alongisde the show floor filled with exhibitors and demo areas, pre-arranged B2B Meetings will help bring together composites offer and demand over the 3 days. Also, 9 plants visits are being organized to give the participants a look behind the scene of several companies and institutes such as the University of Augsburg, Premium Aerotec, SGL Group, Technology Center Augsburg, MT Aerospace, ITA Augsburg, DLR, Frauenhofer Institute or again the University of Applied Science Augsburg.
Attractive Event powered by JEC
Likewise, the Symposium of 8 conferences including more than 60 speakers will gather experts and composites professionals around present composites developments and concerns in Automotive, Aerospace, Medical, Manufacturing, etc.
In the same spirit of maximizing exchanges and connections, various get-togethers and informal celebrations are planned to turn this event into a true representation of the current and future composites industry. Organized by Supported by
