Global launch of Compocity 2015 took place in Paris
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.
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.
