Advisory Board

 

We are delighted to be working with a range of executive stakeholders from the adhesives and material bonding sector, in order to craft an exciting, engaging conference agenda for the 2020 Michigan exhibition. As the first free-to-attend exhibition, and conference, focused specifically on material bonding technology, we are always looking for new insight and advice for our programme and speaker panel. If you would like to provide input or are interested in an advisory board position, due to huge interest, limited to senior executives from major end-users or suppliers, please email: paul.hooker@smartershows.com.
