eMove360° Europe 2019, the world’s leading trade fair for Mobility 4.0 – electric – connected – autonomous teamed up with JEC Asia, the composites event in Asia-Pacific for products, solutions, networking, and advanced industry thinking, to highlight electric mobility as a major use case for lightweight construction concepts and carbon fibre composites in the first edition of eMove360° ASIA.

eMove360° is dedicated to sustainable mobility solutions such as car-sharing and intermodal mobility. With its various platforms – the trade shows as the annual industry gatherings, the eMove360° Award and the MATERIALICA Award, the eMove360° magazine with online news portal, the eMove360° Conferences as well as the eMove360° Club and the e-Monday networking events – eMove360° sees itself as an umbrella brand for the New Mobility and an international marketplace that brings together offer and demand on a global level. eMove360° is strengthening its position at the forefront of the New Mobility with eMove360° ASIA 2019, presented for the first time from November 13-15, 2019 at COEX Exhibition Center in Seoul, South Korea, and conducted in close collaboration with the Korean Electric Vehicle Association (KEVA) and JEC World.

For its 12th edition and third time in Seoul, JEC Asia 2019 will gather companies from the entire composites value chain in Asia Pacific to present their latest capabilities and innovations to the composites community and the strategic end-user’s market including: Mobility, Aeronautics, Building & Construction. More than 245 exhibiting companies are expected with thousands of professionals from 49 countries to network, exchange ideas, explore new opportunities and strengthen their business partnerships.

Addressing the impact of composites in Mobility 4.0

During the press conference held in Seoul on July 9 th to introduce JEC Asia 2019 and eMove Asia 360° main features, a roundtable gathering speakers, experts and academics from prestigious Korean research centers specialized in carbon and composites — along with Hyundai Motor and KCTech composites experts, eMove360°’s CEO & Publisher and Korean Electric Vehicle Association representatives — exchanged their views on the impact of composites in today’s and tomorrow’s mobility in the world with a focus on the Korean market.

Discussions centered around the challenges raised by Mobility 4.0 (electric connected and autonomous vehicles) and how composites can offer highly adapted solutions for the new challenges faced by this sector, particularly in the context of the rising electrification of vehicles.

From 15 to 17 October in Munich JEC Group will organize a Composites solutions pavilion for E-Mobility during eMove360° Europe 2019 and will organise an one hour round table regarding composites materials in electric, hybrid and also connected and autonomous cars.

Hence, the 2019 edition of JEC Asia will welcome for the first time the eMove360° ASIA exhibition and conferences focusing on Trends in electric & autonomous mobility, Battery & Powertrain and Charging & Energy.

Celebrating Innovation and Knowledge

JEC Asia 2019 will also host the 2nd leg of the JEC Startup Booster competition. The JEC Innovation Awards is a long-established and worldwide program with 3 simple goals: identify, promote and reward the most innovative composite solutions in the world. The award ceremony will take place on the second day of JEC Asia, on November 14th, 2019. JEC Asia 2019 will also feature a fulfilling conference program with experts from the industry giving their insights on the latest developments in high-performance composite technologies and applications.

Eric Pierrejean, JEC Group CEO, recalls “Mobility solutions, and automotive, in particular, are impacted by electrification and hybrid solutions as well as the rise of new drivetrains and energy sources, like hydrogen. Connected cars from today will evolve towards more and more autonomous systems where Composites materials have a significant role to play thanks to their benefits, such as Lightweighting and Functions integration, resulting in cutting edge solutions for applications like: Fuel Storage for Hydrogen & CNG Powered Vehicles, Battery Housing & Integration on Electric / Hybrid Vehicles, Connectivity Integration… Our partnership and our presence at eMove360° will definitely answer new mobility challenges, by showcasing solutions offered by Composites to innovative mobility actors and new mobility stakeholders.”
“As an international key player in the New Mobility and because of our roots in the composites business, we fully acknowledge the impact that innovative materials can have in addressing electric, connected and autonomous cars challenges, especially regarding the weight of the vehicles, battery technology or whole new interior concepts.” stated Robert Metzger, CEO of MunichExpo and organizer of the eMove360° Europe 2019. “Our presence during JEC World and JEC Asia 2019 will enable us to present and inform about electric mobility and to further strengthen our position especially in the Asian markets where electric mobility much more advanced compared to Europe and is intensely promoted by Governments.”

Stand space for the eMove360° Europe 2019 and the eMove360° ASIA, which will be held for the first time from November, 13-15, 2019 at the COEX exhibition center in Seoul, South Korea, are still available at www.emove360.com.
