About the Conference

Foam Expo Europe Conference is a platform to promote the advantages of foam materials for the automotive, packaging, aerospace, construction, medical and sports & leisure industries. This includes reactive foaming, foam extrusion, bead foaming, injection moulding, extrusion blow moulded foamed technologies and all chemistries.

The main conference focusses on key industry topics such as market trends, regulatory updates, optimising manufacturing processes and showcasing R&D and innovation in foam materials, technologies and properties such as additive manufacturing of foams, reducing scrap & waste and promoting circular economy & sustainability within the supply chain.

New for 2019 is our dedicated track of roundtables which will offer a space for focused discussion with your peers on topics ranging from improving converting and fabrication processes to reimagining foams and the new processing methods they require.

There is no other tradeshow and conference in Europe that brings together the entire foam supply chain for all foam chemistries and technologies: reactive foaming, extrusion foaming, bead foaming, injection moulding, extrusion blow moulding, for any high-performance application.
