In the same week, from 16 - 18 October 2018, Foam Expo takes place in Hanover. Here, we also will be exhibiting at Booth No. 106. The in-house exhibition overlap with the last day of Foam Expo, so take the opportunity to visit us in Freudenberg. There will be a bus shuttle from Foam Expo to Freudenberg.

A special focus this year will be on the topic ""business innovations from your own resources"". Dr. Carl Naughton, scientific lecturer and author, is going to show in his keynote ""Always curious - why Curiosity fuels Business Innovation"" why and how to promote curiosity in your company. Andreas Steinle from the German Future Institute, is going to present the latest scientific methods for generating innovations with curiosity in two workshops: Curiosity meets industry 4.0.

The evening event also bears the motto "The Art of High Performance". Besides good food, you can look forward to exciting live acts!

We are looking forward to two entertaining days with you...
