JEC World was postponed again due to the COVID-19 emergency. The most important event dedicated to composites, scheduled in Paris in March and then postponed in May, now will be held in March, 9th to 11th, 2021. Here the official announcement:
"During this unprecedented global health crisis, our thoughts go to the victims of the COVID-19 and all those fighting the disease, the businesses, and communities struggling in these difficult times.
The coronavirus pandemic impacting our world in unforeseen ways and the situation changing daily, the extension of the containment throughout Europe and the travel restrictions being reinforced all over the world, make it impossible to hold JEC World as planned, from May 12 to 14, 2020. The entire JEC World team sincerely regrets this, especially after all the efforts pulled out for the postponement in May by all the stakeholders involved.
This decision was made after JEC Group organized a survey within JEC World exhibitors, which revealed that 87,9% of the respondents were in favor of holding the next session of JEC WORLD from March 9th to 11th, 2021. Even if all required preparations have been done by our teams, the COVID-19 situation with travel restrictions, containment measures and the clear preference of our exhibitors for holding the next session on March 2021, are justifying this decision.
All the participants and partners will be contacted very soon in order to best manage the consequences of this decision.
Being the leading trade show of the composites industry, as well as the festival of composites, JEC World brings together the whole industry value chain, as well as professionals from application sectors, experts from the scientific and academic world, associations and media from more than 112 countries. Therefore, JEC World team invites you to the next edition of the exhibition that will be held from March, 9th to 11th, 2021".
