Registration opened for JEC Forum Italy

Registration is now open for JEC Forum Italy, the first event in the country dedicated to composite materials to be held by JEC Group and Assocompositi in Bologna on June 6 and 7, 2023. After its debut next year, the event will then take place every time in a different Italian city, in order to promote the composites ecosystem and allow closer connections with local companies, research and development centres and application sectors.


The forum will be divided into three sections. Business Meetings will be the digital platform available to all participants before the event to plan vis-à-vis business meetings with buyers and suppliers from the composites industry, as well as informal networking encounters during breaks, lunches and the evening gala event. The forum will also include conferences and workshops led by suppliers, who will be able to introduce their products and solutions, and various technical conferences organised by Assocompositi. Finally, with regard to innovation, the JEC Composites Startup Booster competition will be held for the first time in Italy. This is the most popular competition for startups in the world of composites and advanced materials aimed to evaluate, reward and promote the best innovations.


Attendance at the event will be limited to 500 participants, and subject to accreditation ensuring access to the digital matchmaking platform and the forum itself, including the conferences and networking events. The participants will be divided into three categories: the suppliers - companies that will take part in the forum to present and sell their products and/or services and meet potential partners during one-to-one interviews or during presentation workshops; the buyers - who will participate in the purchase process on behalf of their respective companies and get to know new suppliers,  products and technologies; and finally the guests - speakers, experts and customers invited to participate in the forum by the suppliers, by Assocompositi or by the JEC Group.
