Opportunities for composites at JEC Asia

JEC Group, the largest composites industry organisation in the world, brings to light the growing importance composites materials have in every industrial sector, with JEC Asia getting ready to take place from 1-3 November in Seoul, South Korea.

JEC President and CEO, Frédérique Mutel, came to Seoul on 12 July, to share her analysis of the current and future trends with Korean press, industrialists, officials and academics. “Every time I come to Seoul, I am always amazed by the dynamism of the Korean market regarding composites materials and innovation in general. I feel a unique economic vitality from what I call the “golden triangle” formed by government, industry and research together with material sciences and engineering,” she said.

“The proof is the large number of participants we welcomed today. I hope that they grasped the current situation for Composites Materials as well as the challenges and competitions that we will have to overcome together. These are points of reflection that they will be able to pursue during the 10th JEC Asia next November.”

The conference had the honour to be opened by Fabien Penone, French Ambassador to the Republic of Korea. He welcomed the relocation of JEC Asia to Seoul and is looking forward to a promising event next November.

During the conference, prominent guest speakers also took the stage. Mr Jung, President of the Korea Institute of Carbon Convergence Technology, discussed the carbon industry in Jeonbuk. Finally, Mr Kim, President of the Korean Society for Composites Materials, presented the current state and prospects of composites materials in Korea.

For the first time, JEC Asia will be hosting the 12th International Carbon Festival, the Symposium on Carbon Materials and Composite Technologies. “The topics addressed by the ICF symposium are fully complementary subjects to JEC Asia conferences. We believe that the 50% expected international attendees will make the most of the event and of the beautiful city of Seoul,” said Christian Strassburger, JEC Group Asia Director.
