More than 1,000 companies from some 46 countries, covering the entire composites value chain will participate in the JEC Composites Connect, the first round-the-clock digital event of the composites industry, to be held during June 1-2, 2021. The event will give participants an opportunity to network, and present latest innovations at their digital booths.

Three competitions - the JEC Composites Challenge, the JEC Composites Startup Booster, and the famous JEC Composites Innovation Award - will highlight the latest solutions and products this year.

The exhibition will have representation from various sectors such as raw materials, intermediate products, equipment, tools, and ancillary products, distribution, agents, and representation, third parties, services, engineering, and R and D, composite part producers and processors, and composite end-users and integrators.

JEC Composites Connect will be the place to promote the composites sector’s biggest innovative projects. Many product launches are expected over the two days of the show which will highlight excellence, high-performance and environmentally friendly innovations. Around 65 product launches are listed in the 2021 Innovation Report - from raw materials, intermediates and ancillary, R and D to production and equipment, including simulation and measurement and services.

The JEC Composites Challenge will give the floor to ten young researchers from around the world. They will have five minutes to convince a panel of judges comprising leading industrial players in the composites sector. The competition builds bridges between research and industry.

The 2021 JEC Composites Startup Booster has a line-up of 20 finalists while the 2021 JEC Composites Innovation Awards will celebrate the most innovative composites projects and fruitful collaborations between different value chain players in 2021. The names of the finalists will be revealed on May 11.
