FOAM EXPO postponed in late Summer

Trade Shows

Mar 10, 2020

Foam Expo 2020 and all co-located events rescheduled due to Covid-19 (Coronavirus)
New dates announced: August 25 – 27 2020

The wellbeing of our exhibitors, visitors, speakers, staff members and contractors is of paramount importance to the Foam Expo 2020 organisers (Smarter Shows Tarsus Ltd), alongside a commitment to delivering successful event experiences that meet the business objectives of our exhibitors and visitors.

Having closely monitored recent developments around the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and listened to feedback from across the industry, we have decided to postpone Foam Expo 2020, now we have secured our preferred alternative dates in late Summer.

While this is not a decision that has been taken lightly, we feel that it is the right one – not just for the wellbeing of people attending the event, but also for the technical foam industry. Foam Expo is the established principle meeting place for professionals across the technical foam supply chain and we believe the decision to postpone is in the best interests of all participants. With our new dates in place, we are confident that Foam Expo 2020 will continue to be accessible to professionals throughout the supply chain, giving the industry a platform to connect, do business, and collectively identify solutions to the challenges facing the industry.

‘ATP fully understands and supports the decision Smarter Shows Tarsus Ltd has made, and we look forward to presenting at the rescheduled show in late August’  – Richard Simpson, Division LeaderATP Adhesive Systems AG

‘3M fully support the postponement of Foam Expo and Adhesives & Bonding Expo to the summer months and anticipate a great show this August’ – Noah Thacker, Content Management Specialist, 3M

‘Whilst we’re disappointed that the event isn’t taking place in March, as we had originally planned, our new dates in late August enable us to now fully focus on delivering a successful 2020 edition of the show. We appreciate the support received from our key event partners around the decision to postpone, and we’re anticipating a hugely successful 2020 edition of Foam Expo, alongside our new colocation partner Adhesives and Bonding Expo, when it takes place in late August’  – Jamie Reid, Event Director, Foam Expo 2020

We are in ongoing communication with our exhibitors, speakers, partners and suppliers. Those we have managed to speak to thus far have been extremely supportive. If you’d like to get in touch with the Foam Expo team, please contact us at

Thank you for your understanding and support and we look forward to welcoming you to Novi, MI, in August 2020.
