JEC World, the leading international composites trade show held annually in Paris, France, will not take place in 2020. Citing the coronavirus pandemic and global travel restrictions, JEC Group announced its decision to abandon efforts to stage the event this year and instead to postpone it to March 2021.
The organisers had been hoping to host the event, initially planned for 3-5 March, in May of this year instead.
This decision to cancel was made after JEC Group conducted a survey amongst its exhibitors, from which it emerged that 87.9% of the respondents favoured postponing the next session of JEC World until 2021.
The COVID-19 situation with continued travel restrictions and containment measures, make it impossible to schedule a major event of this kind. The next JEC World trade show has now been scheduled to take place March 9-11, 2021.
JEC Group says that all participants and partners will be contacted very soon in order to best manage the consequences of this decision.
