JEC Group decided to postpone the 2020 edition of JEC World to May 12th to 14th 2020.
In a press release, the organizers say that "The recent spread of the coronavirus in new countries last week, and especially countries playing an important role in the composite materials industry such as China, South Korea and Italy, has obliged the JEC World organization team and key stakeholders of the industry to reassess the current situation.
Increased travel restrictions from authorities, but also at corporate level, both from exhibiting and visiting companies, have drastically reduced the potential attendance to the show. Moreover, the latest developments of the coronavirus have significantly increased the concerns of participating companies about the health of their employees. JEC Group has the same concerns, having health and safety of their exhibitors, visitors, partners and staff as a number one priority.
However, many companies are not convinced that the time is sufficient and ask for a further delay at least until after the summer.
