Foam Expo North America, the world’s largest exhibition and conference dedicated to foam technology, returns to Novi, Michigan on June 28 – 30, 2022. Adding even greater value to the experience, Foam Expo is co-located with Adhesives & Bonding Expo, which focuses on the latest innovations in industrial bonding solutions.

This highly respected global event brings together buyers and manufacturers from every stage in the foam, adhesives and bonding supply chains. More than 5,000 international visitors are expected at the Suburban Collection Showplace, just 30 miles from Downtown Detroit, over the three days.

This year’s exhibition will feature almost 500 companies, showcasing a huge range of foam and foam-related products, including raw materials, manufacturing equipment and machinery, molded, rigid and flexible foam solutions, and foam services. Visitors can also discover high-performing material bonding technologies, including surface treatment, curing, bond inspection and adhesive formulations. Informal drinks receptions in the exhibition hall on the first two evenings will provide further valuable networking opportunities. 

The parallel conference tackles the big issues facing the foam, adhesives, and bonding sectors. Each of the three days offers two content streams presented by leading experts, including senior figures from 3M, Saint-Gobain, Bergstrom Inc, Coastal Automotive, Masterfoam Group and H.B. Fuller. The sessions cover a range of technical and commercial topics across Mega-Trends, Supply-Chain Strategy, Application Development, Regulations & Sustainability, Material Selection & Interaction, and Process Optimization & Testing. Manufacturers will also launch new products and present their latest technological developments on the Solutions & Innovations stage; a new feature for the 2022 event.

Regular exhibitor Mr Hal Wilson, President of Air & Water Systems Inc, based in Monroe, NC says: “‘Trade shows are so important: you have the depth of impact, you have immediacy, and you get to see how everything works and what it does. That’s an opportunity that you can’t get online!”

And Dr. Jayshree Seth, Corporate Scientist and Chief Science Advocate at 3M, who will open the conference this year with a keynote talk, says: “The last two-plus years have shown us all the importance of science and innovation. I look forward to talking about science, and science advocacy, and our science-based innovations at Foam Expo 2022 and Adhesives & Bonding Expo 2022.”

Both the Exhibition and Conference are FREE to attend and there are preferential rates for attendees at nearby hotels, and secure onsite parking is available at the venue.
