The largest event of its kind in Europe, Foam Expo Europe will bring together suppliers, manufacturers, and decision-makers from across the technical foam industry in Stuttgart, Germany, from Dec. 5 to 7, 2023.

Foam Expo Europe is co-located with Adhesives & Bonding Expo Europe and Thermal Management Expo Europe (new for 2023). The co-located shows build synergies, according to the event organizers, because technical foam applications require very specific adhesives, tapes, or sealants, and industries such as automotive, aerospace, and electronics require some of their materials to be thermally conductive or to provide cooling solutions.

In addition to more than 200 exhibitors on the show floor, the event includes a conference addressing key trends and challenges facing the technical foam, adhesives, and thermal sectors in Europe and globally.

The combined events provide an opportunity to source new suppliers and materials and find ways to reduce waste, boost production efficiency, and explore innovative technical solutions for 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, according to event organizers. In fact, they claim that 95% of visitors were able to gain valuable connections from the show. Informal receptions in the exhibition hall on the first two evenings will provide further valuable networking opportunities. 

“Foam Expo Europe is really important for us,” said Martin Tietema, Foamplant CEO and founder. "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.”
