Bostik, a leading global adhesive specialist for industrial, construction and consumer markets, has announced it will exhibit at APTA EXPO October 9-11, 2017 in Atlanta, GA.

Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association, APTA EXPO is the public transportation industry’s premier showcase and is expected to bring together over 15,000 transportation professionals from more than 65 countries this year. In addition to its expansive show floor, APTA EXPO will feature complimentary learning sessions on topics ranging from procurement and security to autonomous vehicles and fare collection systems. It also will run in conjunction with APTA’s annual committee meetings.

At the show, Bostik will feature its smart bonding products for a range of transportation applications, such as panel assembly and flooring.
