The four Innovation “planets” that showcased the latest composite innovations were focused on the Aerospace, Automotive, Better Living and Building sectors. JEC Group also launched its new publication, “The Future of Building”, during JEC World 2017. “We are very happy with the participation and the enthusiasm the composite professionals expressed. We are grateful and committed to go even further,” adds Ms. Mutel.
Over the three days, the event recorded a 10% increase in professional visits compared to 2016: 40,607 attendees, 78% of whom were international visitors from 113 different countries.
