eMove360 will be held in parallel to the leading fibre composite fair JEC Asia 2019, which will take place from 13 to 15 November at the COEX exhibition centre in the South Korean capital Seoul, MunichExpo will be organising eMove360 Asia for the first time in addition to the fourth edition of eMove360 Europe.
The eMove360 Asia is organized in close cooperation with the KEVA — Korean Electric Vehicles Association and thus offers a strong internationality as well as a strong Korean community of attendees. The basis of eMove360 Asia is the international eMove360 Asia Conference, which will be dedicated to the key topics of electric mobility, Charging & Energy, Battery & Powertrain, as well as Electric & Autonomous Mobility Trends. The parallel trade fair offers an ideal platform to the exhibitors in order to reach especially engineering experts from the automotive, energy and infrastructure sector.
New Mobility trade fair in one of the key markets
Companies from the New Mobility sector will have the opportunity to present their solutions for tomorrow’s mobility to an international audience of experts in one of the key markets in this area. Asian manufacturers — from Korea, Japan, but also from China — dominate the international vehicle market, the market-leading battery manufacturers are also located in the region with a few exceptions. And Asia also plays an enormously important role as a huge sales market for the worldwide spread of e-Mobility.
“The two focus area Composites and Materials as well as Electric Mobility and Autonomous Driving complement each other perfectly: The core topic in e-Mobility is to reduce the weight of the vehicles, so there is a great demand for innovative materials and new lightweight construction concepts. JEC Asia offers an ideal environment, as last year alone around 7000 engineers — mainly from Asia — visited the trade fair. In this respect, a new and above all very affine target group for the exhibitors of the first eMove360 Asia is virtually guaranteed. And we are very pleased that the cooperation with the KEVA gives us the opportunity to provide our exhibitors from electric mobility and autonomous driving sector in Seoul a successful entry into the Asian market and to create an international New Mobility communication platform in Korea and throughout Asia. I see great potential here to grow together and develop the Asian market”, says Robert Metzger, CEO & Publisher of MunichExpo and organiser of the two international eMove360 trade fairs.
Eric Pierrejean, JEC Group CEO, says: “The automotive industry is accelerating the transition to electric mobility, but also to alternative energy sources such as hydrogen. At the same time, connected vehicles are increasingly developing into entirely autonomous systems. In both cases, composite materials play a crucial role because of their numerous advantages. They enable not only lightweight construction and ultimate freedom of design, but also the integration of new functions such as connectivity, battery housings and insulation for electric cars or fuel tanks for hydrogen and CNG vehicles.”
