Why Stuttgart?

Europe’s largest dedicated trade fair for the entire technical foam manufacturing supply chain will be situated in a thriving centre for the automotive industry. Stuttgart, home to the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Porsche, is the capital of Germany’s Baden-Württemberg state, a region known globally as the ‘birthplace of the car’ and a prominent force in the global automotive industry. It accounts for a quarter of all jobs in the German automotive sector and generates billions in automotive manufacturing exports.

The second edition of Foam Expo Europe will run in parallel with Composites Europe, the European trade fair and forum for composites technology and applications. The events will both take place 10-12 September 2019 in Stuttgart, Germany, establishing a superior range of opportunities for key application industries seeking to utilise advanced materials and technology.

Together, the two fairs at the Stuttgart location will offer synergies for joint applications across the automotive, aviation, construction, and sports and leisure industries.
