Together, the two fairs combine the technologies and applications of composite materials with the entire supply chain of foam production. The joint event at the Stuttgart location offers synergies above all for the joint application industries such as automotive, aviation, the construction sector and the sports and leisure industry. Visitors will find a wide range of lightweight construction materials and manufacturing processes.

Foam Expo Europe, which celebrated its première in 2018, presents the entire foam supply chain and marketplace for manufacturers and buyers of technical foams, foam products and services. The show will focus on moulded, rigid and flexible foam solutions, including raw materials, chemicals, equipment and machinery. Organised by Smarter Shows, the event is focused on bringing together the entire foam manufacturing supply chain and provides a marketplace for engineers and purchasing decision makers to source and discover the most cost effective and innovative materials for foam applications in automotive, aerospace, construction, medical, packaging and sports & leisure applications.

Composites Europe presents the entire range of manufacturing processes for fibre-reinforced plastics, from raw materials and processing methods to lightweight construction innovations in the automotive, aerospace, marine, wind energy and construction sectors. 365 exhibitors from 30 countries presented their innovations at the 13th edition of Composites Europe 2018 at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre. The event is organised by Reed Exhibitions in cooperation with the European industry association EuCIA and the trade association Composites Germany, an association of the organisations AVK, CCeV, CFK-Valley and VDMA AG Hybride Leichtbau Technologien.


At the same time, Composites Europe and Foam Expo Europe will take place for the first time in Stuttgart, Germany, from 10 – 12 September 2019.
