The composites trade show JEC Europe is changing its name to JEC World as part of an expanded focus which will also see it develop its first event in south America.
JEC, organized by France's JEC Group, already has other events outside Europe — in the U.S. and Singapore — and now is planning an event in Brazil, near Sao Paulo.
“We aim to contribute our ‘JEC Group know-how' to help spread the word on composites and develop Latin American markets,” said Frédérique Mutel, JEC Group president and CEO.
The final show under the JEC Europe name is taking place now in Paris. For 2016, JEC World will move to a larger site closer to the airport and other transportation hubs.
The U.S. event is set for June 2-4 in Houston, while JEC Asia is set for September.
