As the long-awaited event of the global composites community, JEC World 2022 will bring together professionals from all backgrounds, eager to meet again in person in Paris from May 3 to 5. Indeed, JEC World remains the unmissable trade show dedicated to composite materials, and the industry’s most significant business event, as leaders, regional pavilions, starups, R&D/scientists, and speakers all confirm their will to attend the show, inviting all their partners to join and get business back on track in May.


Participants in Paris or online will get the opportunity to connect and network with composites companies, from raw material to part manufacturers, make business and find inspiration.
