About Adhesives & Bonding Expo


North America’s leading exhibition for adhesives and bonding technology launches in Novi, MI

June 28 - 30 2022

If you are looking for industrial solutions to bind materials together, for any function, this is a critical event for your calendar. 

Adhesives & Bonding Expo will connect bonding technology providers (adhesives, sealant, lamination and more) with the full range of end user buyers, as well as the entire chemical and equipment supply chain looking for bonding systems to assembly efficient, durable and light-weight components. The event will be co-located with Foam Expo North America, the leading event for the technical foam community to share ideas, formulate partnerships and discover solutions from across the entire supply chain. 

After a period of intense disruption and major changes to the way we work and do business this year, Adhesives & Bonding Expo remains true to its core goal of connecting the community and progressing the industry through the following key elements of the event:


Show floor

View thousands of products and meet 500+ exhibitors – a one-of-a-kind opportunity to source the latest innovations and technologies in adhesives manufacturing.  View live product demonstrations, collect product samples, and discuss your requirements with potential new partners during your visit.



Over the past few months we have been delighted to keep our community connected with a series of insightful webinars and the Adhesives & Bonding Expo virtual event, but despite the convenience of technologies that enable digital meetings, nothing compares to face-to-face interactions with people you would never have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. With networking receptions, B2B matchmaking and networking breaks and lunches throughout the event, Adhesives & Bonding Expo is the meeting place to make invaluable new connections and catch up with colleagues. And beyond built-in networking, you never know what new partnerships could arise from a chance meeting as you grab your morning coffee - and if you aren’t there to seize it, your competitor will instead!



Core to the Adhesives & Bonding Expo experience is an opportunity to catch up on emerging industry trends, discover the latest foam and adhesive processing and application requirements, as well as approaches for testing and validating foams and adhesives. The expert speaker panel of industry leaders and technical specialists will provide the most up-to-date content including post-pandemic market requirements, balancing cost-efficiency with sustainability and how to prepare your business for the opportunities that lay ahead.

Although we know you can’t wait to meet in person, there are plenty of opportunities to connect with the Adhesives & Bonding community and keep to up to date with the latest trends through our range of digital initiatives.  Don’t miss our webinars, executive interviews, industry reports and more!
