Coming to Europe: Foam Expo to unite manufacturers and buyers on the continent

Following major success and acclaim in North America, Foam Expo is coming to Europe – bringing with it industry expertise, new, innovative products, live demonstrations and unparalleled networking opportunities.

On October 16-18, 2018, industry players are invited to Hanover, Germany to exhibit at or attend this dedicated exhibition and conference for the technical foam manufacturing supply chain.

Foam Expo is the only industry event of its kind, free to attend and featuring all types of foam and raw materials used in the manufacture of foam and related products. The inaugural exhibition took place in the United States earlier this year, earning accolades and racking up impressive figures. More than 4,000 attendees discovered products and innovations from hundreds of exhibitors, with industry-leading companies including 3M, Airbus, Apple, Boeing, General Motors, Honeywell, Michelin, Procter & Gamble and Tesla taking part. This October, Foam Expo Europe is set to enjoy comparable success.

As well as being similar in size, the American and European expos share a common focus, concentrating on bringing together the entire foam supply chain and targeting buyers from key end-user markets such as aerospace, automotive, construction, medical, packaging and sports and leisure. Foam Expo Europe will feature moulded, rigid and flexible foam solutions using a range of materials, as well as an impressive collection of equipment and machinery and some of the biggest names in the industry.

Vast in scope, the exhibition serves all segments of the foam manufacturing supply chain and showcases the latest innovations from both broad and niche areas. Foam Expo Europe will highlight the latest product applications, services and equipment from multiple sectors, including foam manufacturing, adhesives and sealants, converting and fabricating, equipment and machinery, raw materials, recycling and testing.

Running alongside the free expo is a two-track conference whose comprehensive agenda covers foam applications; the key challenges and opportunities of material properties and their use across a range of industries; and the latest developments in the supply chain, equipment processing technology and quality assurance. Headlined by industry heavyweights, the conference is a hub for the exchange of ideas, insight, discussion and expertise.

Foam Expo Europe is a dynamic sales and marketing event, and exhibitors and attendees alike will enjoy networking opportunities with thousands of their industry peers. The event offers a unique opportunity to showcase new products and services to qualified buyers and decision makers, and many companies use Foam Expo as a platform to launch new products or services, making the expo essential for those looking to stay ahead and remain competitive in the foam industry.

Foam Expo Europe will be co-located with Sustainable Materials Expo, which connects the sustainable materials manufacturing supply chain with buyers from end-user industries. The event is a new, commercially focused exhibition and the only dedicated forum through which industry participants can engage their full spectrum of current and potential buyers and partners.
