JEC Asia is a major, insightful composites event in Asia-Pacific for products, solutions, net-working, and advanced industry thinking. For its 12th edition and third time in Seoul, JEC Asia 2019 will gather companies from the entire composites value chain in Asia Pacific to present their latest capabilities and innovations to the composites community and the strategic end-user’s market including: mobility, aeronautics, building and construction.

This year, more than 245 exhibiting companies are expected with thousands of professionals from 49 countries to network, exchange ideas, explore new opportunities and strengthen their business partnerships.

Impact of composites in Mobility 4.0

During the press conference held in Seoul on 9 July to introduce JEC Asia 2019 and eMove Asia 360° main features, a roundtable gathering speakers, experts and academics from prestigious Korean research centres specialised in carbon and composites — along with Hyundai Motor and KCTech composites experts, eMove360°’s CEO & Publisher and Korean Electric Vehicle Association representatives — exchanged their views on the impact of composites in today's and tomorrow's mobility in the world with a focus on the Korean market.

Discussions cantered around the challenges raised by Mobility 4.0 (electric connected and autonomous vehicles) and how composites can offer highly adapted solutions for the new challenges faced by this sector, particularly in the context of the rising electrification of vehicles.

The 2019 edition of JEC Asia will welcome for the first time the eMove360° Asia exhibition and conferences focusing on trends in electric and autonomous mobility, battery and powertrain and charging and energy.

Celebrating innovation and knowledge

JEC Asia 2019 will also host the second leg of the JEC Startup Booster competition, the leading start-up competition in the world of composites will enable companies to find and assess innovations with a potential impact on their respective industry. The 10 finalists selected in the region by a prestigious jury, will pitch their project to win a chance to showcase their work at JEC World 2020 in Paris.

The JEC Innovation Awards is a long-established and worldwide programme with three goals: identify, promote and reward the most innovative composite solutions in the world. Over the past 15 years, the JEC Innovation Program has involved 1,800 companies worldwide; 177 companies and 433 partners have been rewarded for the excellence of their composite innovations. The award ceremony will take place on the second day of JEC Asia, on November 14th, 2019.
