about the conference

Following on from its successful launch, the second annual Foam Expo Conference will cover four core areas: manufacturing, applications, industry trends and materials. Featuring a two-track agenda, more than 60 industry-leading speakers and three days of keynote and panel sessions, the conference will offer in-depth discussions geared to end-user markets such as aerospace, automotive, construction, medical, packaging and sports & leisure.  

If you are an engineer or decision-maker from an OEM or tier 1 supplier, a foam manufacturer, fabricator or converter, or a materials or equipment supplier, attending the conference will provide an opportunity to learn about application design, manufacturing processes and current trends in the technical foam supply chain.

The call for papers for the 2018 conference has now closed.
