The Exhibitor Hall was sold out this year... with a waiting list! And, for good reason. It was nonstop action and nothing but good feedback was overheard. According to SPFA Executive Director Kurt Riesenberg, "The Exhibit Hall was the most diverse-ever offering of SPF materials, equipment and services the industry has ever seen. As the industry continues to grow the Exhibit Hall will become even more of an epicenter for the growth and progress of SF businesses." More than 90 exhibitors and more than 1,000 attendees cruised the sold-out Sprayfoam 2015 tradeshow floors.

SPFA recognizes the growing presence of women in leadership positions in the SPF industry. In particular, women-owned businesses have specialized challenges and opportunities. The attendance at this year's reception at Sprayfoam 2015 was fantastic! The attendance DOUBLED over what it was last year, its inaugural year.
