The first edition of JEC World, an international composites show that took place in Paris March 8-10, featured 1,300 exhibitors across 62,000 square meters of space.

The event attracted 36,946 people, organizers said.

JEC Group president and CEO Frédérique Mutel said the reaction to the show was pride in the composites industry and delight at JEC Group’s showcasing of it.

“The JEC teams have indeed done a wonderful job at presenting composites to the world in the most impressive way,” Mutel said in a statement.

“An enormous range of products and technologies were presented, shared and showcased at JEC World 2016. Composite materials continue to become more widespread. In a world where energy savings and recyclability are sought, composites seem to stand out as one of the best answers. Innovative solutions must be found for current and upcoming challenges in terms of higher performance, lower weight, reduced costs and processing time, and of course, addressing the pressing matters of environmental concerns.”
