About the conference

Foam Expo Europe Conference, co-located with Adhesives & Bonding Expo Europe, will bring together high-level representatives from a cross-section of the technical foam and adhesives supply chains. Their combined experience helps to foster an environment primed for innovation and the sharing of knowledge.

The free-to-attend conference will address key trends and challenges for the end user market as well as both supply chains. The event will focus on but not be limited to the automotive, aerospace, medical, packaging, construction, and sports & leisure industries.

New for 2022: to address the current challenges faced both in Europe and globally, the conference will be addressing supply chain disruptions, product traceability and risk mitigation. Join us to find out about how other businesses are handling the situation.
