Smarter Shows: Foam Expo North America 2020 preview
Foam Expo North America 2020, one of the world’s largest dedicated exhibitions and conferences for the technical foam industry, will take place from 24 – 26 March 2020 in halls A, B and C of the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI, USA. According to the organiser, Smarter Shows (Tarsus) Limited, the event is a meeting place for the manufacturers, suppliers and buyers of technical foam products and technologies, offering attendees access to innovative machinery and services from across the entire foam supply chain. Moving into its fourth year, the event provides a unique opportunity to network with OEMs and suppliers and keep up-to-date with the latest industry trends.
Smarter Shows said that with three years of organising the event under its belt, Foam Expo North America has built a globally recognisable reputation for pairing the industry’s biggest and brightest together in business. Looking forward to the fourth consecutive year, the organiser is inviting to take part in this opportunity to meet and form connections with target partners, suppliers and manufacturers.
According to Smarter Shows, what makes Foam Expo so unique is its multifaceted approach to integrating the latest technologies and optimum learning opportunities under one roof. The organiser said it is welcoming an outstanding list of exhibitors to the trade show floor this year, including Huntsman, Recticel, Covestro, Sealed Air, Crown Foam Technologies, Dow and 3M to name a few. With a total 350+ exhibitor count, spanning across the automotive, aerospace, packaging, sports and leisure, medical and construction end-user markets, a visit to Foam Expo gives accessibility to companies, OEM’s and end-users from all corners of the globe.
Taking place alongside the exhibition, Foam Expo attendees are welcomed to attend three days of topical content at the free-to-attend conference with the core theme “building a brighter future for the foam industry through sustainability and cost efficiency.” Key topics surrounding this focus will include: sustainability, recycling, foam additives, thermal management and lightweighting – taking place within a dynamic schedule of Roundtable Discussions, Material Jam Sessions and 101: tutorials. Through learning and interactive questioning with high-level representatives from cross-sections of the supply chain, delegates will be given prime opportunity to get to the bottom of some of the industry’s most pressing challenges, said Smarter Shows.
To meet with market demand, Foam Expo will be co-located with launch event, Adhesives & Bonding Expo – America’s first free-to-attend exhibition and conference that connects providers of bonding and sealant technologies. Exhibiting companies here include Lord, Bostik, Covestro, Avery Dennison, H.B Fuller and Henkel, adding to the total 100+ exhibitors expected within this dedicated area. Together, from 24 – 26 March 2020, the organisers are anticipating 8,000+ total attendees and 500 exhibiting companies across the three days, culminating in an industry-leading event in both adhesives and foam technology calendars.
