Europe’s Meeting Place For Industrial Bonding Professionals

17 August 2023

Stop by the impressive, free-to-attend, Adhesives & Bonding Expo Europe this winter (5-7 December 2023) to get your yearly fix on all things industrial bonding in the manufacturing hub of Stuttgart, Germany. As the continent’s biggest adhesives and bonding event, it brings together suppliers, manufacturers, and decision-makers from across the industry to meet and make new connections, all under one roof. You can secure your free pass here.

Co-located with Foam Expo Europe, this provides synergy because there are thousands of unique technical foam applications that require very specific adhesives, tape, or sealants. Therefore, this supply chain-led show can help to establish the best fit in a short amount of time and connect you to experts in niche fields. Adhesives & Bonding Expo Europe is also co-located with Thermal Management Expo Europe (new for 2023) because industries like automotive, aerospace, electronics (and many more) require some of their materials in foam, adhesives, and tapes to be thermally conductive or provide cooling solutions.

This year’s Exhibition will feature 200+ companies, showcasing solutions in assembling (or joining) similar or dissimilar materials to build complex structures or devices. It’s a unique opportunity for attendees to discuss the latest materials, components, and technologies available in the marketplace. Attendees can also take part in the free-to-attend Conferences, which address key trends and challenges facing the technical foam, adhesives, and thermal sectors in Europe and worldwide.

For attendees, the combined events provide an ideal opportunity to source new suppliers and materials, find ways to reduce waste, boost production efficiency, and explore innovative technical solutions to end-user requirements. But for most visitors, the chance to network, make new contacts, and meet people face-to-face is the key reason to attend. In fact, 95% of visitors were able to gain valuable connections from the show. Informal drinks receptions in the exhibition hall on the first two evenings will provide further valuable networking opportunities.  

Jerome Alexandre, Director of Global Business Development at Bostik said “Face-to-face expos are important because we are humans! There are some topics that are hard to speak about over Teams or Zoom as it does not achieve the same feeling or interaction with your customer. It is also difficult to show a sample and explain what it looks like.”

Quin Dams, Segment Marketing Manager Building & Construction at Avery Dennison Performance Tapes said “It’s a formal get-together of not only bonding solutions, adhesive suppliers, foam producers, but from the application side, technical and purchasing people. A fantastic show.”

Registration for Adhesives & Bonding Expo Europe, which is FREE to attend, is open. Please follow this link to secure your free pass, it only takes 2 minutes and provides access to all three shows.
