How it started

Foam Expo North America first ran in 2017 and was identified due to a growing group of foam manufacturers at industry sector events, mainly Automotive, Aerospace, and Medical. We soon recognized there was no place that championed the material and its engineering solutions or an event that brought together the technical and manufacturing foam community and its full supply chain. Therefore, Foam Expo North America was born. In 2021, we launched Adhesives & Bonding Expo North America as a co-located show to attract more of the same highly focused and relevant audience.
