JEC World 2019 will welcome over 1,300 exhibitors and feature 26 pavilions, with 115 countries represented, expecting to attract more than 43,000 professional visits. The event, which will take place from 12-14 March in Paris, will focus on creating business, sourcing innovation and sharing knowledge through different actions and programmes, such as pre-arranged business meetings, technical conferences, JEC Innovation Awards, Composites Exchange, Startup Booster competition, Innovation planets, Composites in Action, Composite Challenge, and more.

The 2019 edition will be the opportunity to present the results of the global composite market observatory; to offer the renewed Composites Industry Circles to automotive, aero and building end-users industrials; to highlight regions with strong composites ecosystem; and to host the first Composites in action area dedicated to 3D-printing in cooperation with IMT, DLR and Thermwood.

JEC Innovation Awards will identify, promote and reward the most innovative composite projects worldwide. They celebrate the fruitful cooperation between players of the composites community. Over the past 15 years, the JEC Innovation Awards have brought in 1,800 companies worldwide. 177 companies and 433 partners have been rewarded for the excellence of their composite innovations. Awarded companies will be officialised on 13 March.

The four Innovation planets are solution focused areas where major OEMs and suppliers can discover the latest trends per industry. In 2019, JEC World will focus on Aero&Space, Auto&Transport, Construction&Energy and Sports&LifeStyle.

  • Aeronautics: technologies for the future legacy programs
  • Automotive: solutions for hybrid, fuel cell and electric vehicles
  • Building, Construction & Civil Engineering: fast, economic and lasting solutions
  • Simulation: the end of "black metal"
  • Additive Manufacturing: real reinforced parts
  • Sports & Leisure: how to be out the average

After a second edition in 2018, Startup Booster, the leading start-up competition in the world of composites, will enable companies to find and assess innovations with a potential impact on their industry. Visitors can discover the pitches of the 10 finalists selected by a prestigious jury, on 12 March in Agora Stage.
