Shaping the future of technical foam, one session at a time

Our conference offers an exceptional opportunity to immerse yourself in the dynamic world of technical foam, relevant to a number of end-user markets. Gain insights into end-user requirements, material innovation, and manufacturing optimisation to meet your application specifications with precision. What sets us apart is our diverse community of speakers spanning the supply chain, from end-users to manufacturers, converters, and industry associations.

Our sessions will explore an array of topics from moulded and thermal solutions to lightweighting, noise control, rigid and flexible foams, along with insights into the cutting-edge machinery and services that drive industry progress. But above all, sustainability and supply chain collaboration are central themes, as we collectively shape a more environmentally conscious and efficient future.

The full agenda for 2024 will be launched in Autumn.
