October 3, 2013

The organizers of the Techtextil North America and JEC America plan to co-locate their 2014 events at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA on May 13-15, 2014.

The co-location of Techtextil North America, Texprocess Americas and JEC Americas will provide a platform for suppliers and
end-product manufacturers to access the entire high tech value chain. The strength of this event is the opportunity to provide an opportunity for technical textiles and composites manufacturers and suppliers to showcase their technologies, expand their expertise and network with a wide array of industry professionals and gain a competitive edge in the ever growing market, helping to provide a well rounded experience for visitors.

"Composites are a growing, innovative product segment also for technical textiles," says John Gallagher, president and CEO, Messe Frankfurt Inc. "The agreement allows a blending within the technical textiles and composites value chain—material producers, technology and equipment manufacturers, end product fabricators and composite users. The co-location of the 11th Techtextil North America, the 2nd Texprocess Americas and JEC Americas will provide access to a more encompassing product range for both exhibitors and visitors."

JEC’s third annual JEC Americas Exhibition & Conference in Atlanta will focus on the full composites value chain from raw materials to the manufacturing processes and further underscores JEC’s commitment to the Americas composites industry.

"We are pleased about the partnership with Messe Frankfurt," says Frederique Mutel, JEC Group, president and CEO. "Both organizations are fully committed to to the industry. Both are experts of their sectors and produce high-value events. Together we will deliver a strategic event."

This agreement is an important step forward for the Techtextil Brand, which consists of six shows worldwide including the established number one show in Frankfurt.

"We are very happy with this co-location as it is the first time we are working together with another exhibition brand. I am convinced that the industry will appreciate this cooperation, especially those in the U.S.," says Michael Jaenecke, director brand management Techtextil, Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH.
