Eyes forward: looking ahead to Foam Expo 2018

With great memories of this year’s Foam Expo still fresh in our minds, the team behind the event has been looking ahead to 2018, building on this year’s unprecedented success to bring you a Foam Expo 2018 that will be even bigger, better, and with more opportunities to engage, learn, and network with your industry peers.

Next year will mark Foam Expo’s largest international presence yet, with companies from countries including Germany, Korea, Japan, and the USA having already secured their spot on the exhibition floor. Greater numbers are expected from all corners of the industry, with a core presence of visitors from OEMs, Tier 1s, and academic and research organizations and representatives from all levels – from C-suite professionals through to business developers and technical specialists from all areas.

Foam Expo 2018 will also be broader in terms of discussion topics and niche products, with a more comprehensive collection of technologies and innovations and – yet again – some of the best and most insightful speakers in the industry. One key area to be expanded upon at Foam Expo 2018 is EPS (extruded polystyrene), with greater numbers of exhibiting machine manufacturers, chemical suppliers, foam manufacturers, pump/valve flow control applicators, converters, extruders, and molders in attendance. Not only will the event host more EPS industry players – Foam Expo 2018 will open its doors to numerous companies that serve the EPS foam sector. Those confirmed for next year’s event include Kurtz Ersa, Hirsch Maschinenbau, and Dabo Precision Co.

Beyond those specializing in EPS, some of the wider foam industry’s most high-profile players have already signed up to exhibit next year. These include Huntsman, Hennecke Inc, Adient, General Plastics, Sealed Air Corp, Pregis, Barber Corporation, DCS USA, Viking Pump, Iwatani, Toray Plastics America, and Lauren MFG.
