JEC Composites April show pulverizes records in Europe, worldwide
Jun '08
On April 1-3, 2008, Paris was the world's capital for composite materials. The JEC Composites Show was a phenomenal success, with a record turnout and greatly expanded exhibit area. Its 43,500 m² (462,848 sq ft) included no fewer than seven halls, a new outdoor demonstration area, and a specially-built auditorium/conference-room structure.

The Show has developed steadily for the past ten years, with a marked acceleration in its growth since 2005. It drew to a close this year registering an exceptional participation rate for all its programmes.

The Show hosted 1,053 exhibitor companies, with 74% from abroad. More than 100 new companies joined the exhibition, mainly from Europe where JEC Show is the strongest exhibition.

The number of visitors reached +27,000 professionals, from 96 different countries with a +13% increase at the pick. One out of two visitors was a buyer or end-user seeking new solutions for aeronautical, marine, automotive, construction, infrastructure, energy, or sports & leisure applications.

Conferences and forums, including partners' lectures, were attended by an audience of 2,000. JEC Press Center connected to +500 magazines in the world, hosted 140 journalists.

The 2008 theme, “Manufacturing Advances”, provided the opportunity to take the measure of our industry's maturity.
