See what some of our past speakers are saying:

"The Foam Expo Conference was an excellent experience, I enjoyed having the opportunity to speak in front of such a diverse audience. There were people that we do not normally communicate with, that we could show our message about our transition. Overall, it exceeded my expectations”

“Speaking at the conference was very good, it was a big venue, very well attended and with lots of questions asked, so I made a lot of good contacts”

“Speaking at the Foam Expo Conference was great, it is well attended by a diverse group of people – from automotive to adhesives and rubber industries – and is exciting to connect with these people by listening to presentations”
