Global launch of Compocity 2015 took place in Paris

Composites city was presented to more than 36,000 people who participated in JEC Europe 

The global launch of Compocity 2015, the composites city, took place during JEC Europe, the largest global trade show of this type of high-performance plastic - Paris, March 10-12. The event, which is the result of a partnership between the Latin American Composite Materials Association (ALMACO) and the French JEC, leader in the promotion of composites worldwide, will take place at Expo Transamérica, in São Paulo, on November 04-07. 

"Given the importance of JEC Europe, there could not have been a better platform for the official launch of Compocity", said Gilmar Lima, president of ALMACO. The trade show in Paris brought together more than 36,000 people, with the participation of leading companies in the composites industry. 

"We will also have a space to promote Compocity in JEC Houston, an event organized by JEC, in June, in the US," said Lima. Before that, he will go to Mexico to talk about the composites city to approximately 600 entrepreneurs. "Compocity left Paris a lot stronger. We definitely included Brazil on the map of the global composites industry," said the president of ALMACO.

In the agreement between ALMACO and JEC, it was agreed that the first will be responsible for the practical aspects involving the construction of Compocity, as well as for promoting the parallel events, such as the Top of Mind, main award of the Brazilian composites sector - this year’s edition also will award the best applications by segment. The International Seminar on Composites, in turn, will be organized by JEC. "The presentations will address applications, innovations and trends in four main segments: construction, transportation, industry and energy."

Compocity 2012 generated a turnover of US$ 600 million

A new concept of trade fair, Compocity was created by ALMACO to show the versatility of composites. By building an entire city with the material, the association showed that this type of high performance plastic can be transformed into solutions for all segments, from infrastructure and energy to transportation, housing and leisure. 

In the first edition, Compocity generated a turnover of US$ 600 million in business. “Despite the economic difficulties faced by Brazil, the expectation with this year’s event is to generate a result next to US$ 800 million,” estimated the president of ALMACO. At Compocity 2015, visitors will be able to check out live the manufacture of composites parts and the operation of a recycling unit.
