Are you interested in generating years’ worth of business connections in just three days? Then this is the show for you! At Foam Expo North America, you will find over 450 technical foam and industrial bonding exhibitors from every stage of the supply chain to network with and get business done. Last year, 80% of visitors rated networking with exhibitors as a valuable show feature, and almost 100% of attendees gained 15+ new business leads. Plus, you will have access to the networking receptions and watch live product demonstrations, so there will be plenty of opportunities to spend quality time with experts. In addition, you will be able to listen to senior-level professionals at the free conference, where you can access exclusive knowledge face-to-face. Key topics include sustainability, applications, manufacturing, supply chain disruptions, plus more.

 “I have met lots of suppliers and customers from around the world, so it has been an amazing networking opportunity for me.”

Bruno Motta, Global Project Manager, Henkel

Can you name a better show for brand exposure? With the floor plan approaching 90% capacity, it is important to secure your spot today at the largest expo for the industrial bonding supply chain.

 “The show is good, it’s impressive to have lots of people coming up to our stand who know what they are searching for and are professional, skilled and have specific questions. It is great that we can show a sample and explain what it looks like face-to-face too.”

Jerome Alexandre, Director of Global Business Development, Bostik.

Why listen?

Attendees can also take in the free conference over three stages, which address important trends and challenges facing the technical foam, adhesives, and bonding sectors in North America and worldwide. The number one reason you should attend our conference sessions is to gain insights into end-user requirements, material innovation and manufacturing optimization so you can meet your application specifications. What’s special about this conference is the community, you will hear and learn from a range of professionals across the supply chain (end-users, manufacturers, converters and industry associations) who will share different perspectives on hot topics without it feeling like a business meeting.

 “A cool thing about this conference is how there are different levels of expertise from the supply chain.”

Joshua Sabrowsky, Hyundai-Kia America Technical Centre
