Back To Seoul: JEC Asia Gathers The Composites Industry In Korea For Its 11th Edition

PARIS — September 4, 2018 — After the record-breaking figures of the 2017 edition that marked the move of JEC Asia from Singapore to Seoul, the event is returning to the capital city of the Republic of Korea with a strong program, not only on the exhibition floor, but also in the conference sessions and all services at the disposal of every attendee.

“We are very grateful for the support of the industry, government bodies, and academics, regarding the evolution of JEC Asia, that has led to the success of the platform,” said Christian Strassburger, events director Asia for JEC Group. “Indeed, 90 percent of the show floor is already booked which bodes well for the preparation of the event.”

“On top of that, the event is truly international, as 45 percent of the exhibitors are coming from outside Asia. JEC Asia will welcome pavilions from Germany, France, Italy, Japan, China and Singapore, as well as the major composite clusters in Korea.” He added.
