JEC Group and the Thai Composites Association (TCA) are very satisfied with the outcomes from their third co-organised annual event. Indeed, the event focused on a growing market for the composites industry, Construction and Architecture and attracted a good number of architects and end-users. The event welcomed 181 delegates from 21 countries, 46 per cent of them were OEMs and Composites End-users. They all gathered in Bangkok to attend a two-days conference followed by site visits and laboratory demonstrations.
The 19 speakers from 13 countries presented the trends, innovations and opportunities for composites materials in the Construction and Architecture industry. Among the very informative speeches, Duangrit Bunnag, Owner and Founder at Duangrit Bunnag Architect Limited in Thailand, shared his view on “New Architectural Typology”.
“Considering the outcomes of this event, we believe that composite materials have great opportunities in the Construction Industry. The feedbacks from the many attending architects and end-users are very positive and we will keep on developing this topic on our next events,” comments Christian Strassburger, JEC Group Events Director for Asia.
“We are delighted to hear such positive feedback from all participants. I would like to thank in particular all speakers who have done an excellent job. The continuity of the event into its 3rd year also leads local businesses to become more international and help brings the private, academic and governmental sector together. With roughly half of the participants coming from abroad, Composites Asia is becoming a great composites event for the whole South East Asia,” comments Danu Chotikapanich, TCA President.
