Europe’s Meeting Place For Technical Foam Professionals

17 August 2023

Stop by the impressive, free-to-attend, Foam Expo Europe this winter (5-7 December 2023) to get your yearly fix on all things technical foam in the manufacturing hub of Stuttgart, Germany. As the continent’s biggest technical foam event, it brings together suppliers, manufacturers, and decision-makers from across the industry to meet and make new connections, all under one roof. You can secure your free pass here.

Co-located with Adhesives & Bonding Expo Europe, this provides synergy because there are thousands of unique technical foam applications that require very specific adhesives, tape, or sealants. Therefore, this supply chain-led show can help to establish the best fit in a short amount of time and connect you to experts in niche fields. Foam Expo Europe is also co-located with Thermal Management Expo Europe (new for 2023) because industries like automotive, aerospace, electronics (and many more) require some of their materials in foam, adhesives, and tapes to be thermally conductive or provide cooling solutions.

This year’s Exhibition will feature 200+ companies, showcasing a huge range of foam and foam-related products. It’s a unique opportunity for attendees to discuss the latest materials, components, and technologies available in the marketplace. Attendees can also take part in the free-to-attend Conferences, which address key trends and challenges facing the technical foam, adhesives, and thermal sectors in Europe and worldwide.

For attendees, the combined events provide an ideal opportunity to source new suppliers and materials, find ways to reduce waste, boost production efficiency, and explore innovative technical solutions to end-user requirements. But for most visitors, the chance to network, make new contacts, and meet people face-to-face is the key reason to attend. In fact, 95% of visitors were able to gain valuable connections from the show. Informal drinks receptions in the exhibition hall on the first two evenings will provide further valuable networking opportunities.  

Martin Tietema, CEO and Founder at Foamplant said “Foam Expo Europe is really important for us. It’s essential that we can connect with the entire value chain from raw material suppliers to converters as well as the brands that are implementing the products – we can speak to all of them!”

Elena Turba, Communications and Marketing Manager at CMS said “The show has been very good, we have seen a lot of new and old customers. Face-to-face shows are important because the physical approach of seeing the machine and meeting the person you are speaking to is very effective for decision-making.”

Registration for Foam Expo Europe, which is FREE to attend, is open. Please follow this link to secure your free pass, it only takes 2 minutes and provides access to all three shows.
