More information on the JEC World 2019, the international trade fair of reference in composite construction. A place of inspiration for boating, in contact with the aeronautics, automotive and construction industries.

The major event in composite materials

JEC World has established itself as the leading trade fair for composite construction. The 2019 edition will be held from 12 to 14 March at the Paris-Nord Villepinte exhibition space. As in 2018, the organizers anticipate more than 43,000 visitors from more than 100 countries. More than 1300 exhibitors, representing all aspects of the composite industry, from fibre and resin producers to car and aircraft manufacturers to designers, will occupy 26 thematic pavilions.

3D printing and bio-composites in the spotlight

3D printing and additive construction are emerging as a major area of development for composites. Conferences and events around these manufacturing processes are on the agenda. Bio-composites are also continuing to develop and become more visible in the psalm, no longer presented as a curiosity in itself, but through specific applications in each economic sector.

The main events

Faithful to its thematic organization, the JEC will propose 4 exhibition areas, the Innovation Planets, to promote products produced in the main fields of application of composite materials. Aero and Space, Automotive and Construction are still present, while the 4th theme is renamed Sports and LifeStyle, in which boating will find its place.

The program includes many conferences. Among them, the themes "Additive construction: real reinforcement parts" and "Sports and Leisure: How to be out of the average", treated on March 14, may interest water sports professionals.

Renowned speakers, such as Bertrand Piccard of the Solar Impulse Foundation or Enrico Palermo, President of Spaceship, are expected at the Agora space.

A space dedicated to employment and training, offering workshops and visits to students, is being opened for the first time at JEC World 2019.
