Select Global Events is delighted to announce the arrival of Tape & Functional Film Expo, co-located with Silicone Expo!

The RAI, Amsterdam - March 14-16 March 2023
Huntington Place, Detroit - June 6-8 2023

Tape & Functional Film Expo is the first dedicated exhibition and conference for the industrial Tape & Functional Film industries within Europe and North America. Companies will be exhibiting from the entire manufacturing supply chains of both industries, and we are delighted to confirm that Mactac, Adhesive Applications, AVX Tapes and SELF are already on board as founding supporters and Advisory Board Members. We are also delighted to confirm that the AFERA Association will be working closely with us to advise, promote and help us propel the industry forward.

The two events will be bringing in buyers, engineers, and R&D Specialists from a range of end user markets from the high value sectors including, Electronics & Semiconductors, Medical, Flexible Circuit Boards, Solar Energy, Energy Storage, and Flat Panel Displays as well as high use industries such as Automotive, White Goods, HVAC, Industrial and Construction.

Tape & Functional Film Expo will be co-locating with Silicone Expo, the first commercial trade shows and conferences for the Silicone industry. Exhibitors will be presenting from across the entire supply chain of the large and ever developing industry. Given the crossover and relevance, Silicone Expo is the perfect show to be co-located with.

“We are delighted to bring to market these new European & North American exhibitions and conferences for the tape and functional film industries. Given the importance and wide range of end users, plus continued development, and applications into emerging and high value sectors, we see this as a huge opportunity to provide a platform that these extensive markets deserve. Deciding to co-locate the events with Silicone Expo was an easy decision given the synergies between all markets. Combining will ensure an even better value proposition for those attending. We thank all those involved in helping to make this happen”. Nathan Reuby, CEO, Select Global Events
