The meeting place for the industry’s key players

FEICA is proud to announce the 2023 European Adhesive & Sealant Conference and EXPO, set at the PortAventura Convention Centre in Tarragona, Spain, from 13 to 15 September 2023.

The FEICA Conference and EXPO is the most important event for the adhesive and sealant industry in Europe. Essential insights into the key issues affecting the industry are offered throughout the event, and it is also a great networking opportunity for formulators, customers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and members of the academic community.

We are looking forward to welcoming the leaders of the adhesives and sealants industry once again to discuss such global challenges as sustainable growth, new technologies and industry innovation, and how to build opportunities for long-term growth.

Day by day, the adhesive and sealant industry is developing more technologies to support a growing world population to live a better life and use the planet’s resources responsibly and efficiently. The FEICA Conference and EXPO is the ideal place to highlight how, by collaborating across value chains in different sectors, our industry’s innovations are key in supporting the societal shift to a better future.

Business Forum

The theme for this year’s Business Forum is ‘Industry Innovation for Sustainable Development’. The Forum will feature highly regarded keynote speakers and will be followed by a panel discussion on the innovation required for sustainable development.

The current energy crisis, post-COVID recovery, shrinking market share of EU producers, increasing regulatory pressure, and megatrends such as global competition are all converging upon the business sector simultaneously. In addition, the Circular Economy has become key to drive value for customers and society. Our industry therefore needs true innovation to sustain and grow. Sustainability is the overarching theme that sparks innovation today, and industry innovation is therefore not only a critical driver of growth but can significantly contribute towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and enabling the European Green Deal.


The Table Top Exhibition opens in the afternoon of Wednesday 13 September, with no parallel conference sessions scheduled. The EXPO runs until Friday 15 September at 14:00. The Table Top Exhibition is included in the entrance fee of the Conference delegates.
