Connecting bright minds
Every year, our exhibitions and congresses connect more than 110,000 bright minds from all over the world. Drawing inspiration from our events, these individuals create new solutions that shape the future.
Our highly motivated and passionate team of around 150 people is dedicated to achieving this.
Participating in our events means taking away a wealth of knowledge, new contacts, an abundance of inspiration. And, as part of Messe Frankfurt’s worldwide network, we are able to facilitate this exchange of ideas across borders.
Connecting bright minds – this is the passion that motivates us day after day.

Additive manufacturing is shaping the future of industrial manufacturing
For four days, Formnext 2022 turned host city Frankfurt into the global capital of industrial 3D printing. And this year’s exhibition was very much in tune with the times. As the coronavirus pandemic continues and new political and economic challenges emerge as a result, additive manufacturing can play a key role in decentralizing manufacturing processes and production, making supply chains more resilient, and facilitating resource and energy efficient production in order to get innovative new products onto the market faster.
Successful start to Formnext 2022: growth, world premieres and a huge variety of topics
A very high level of visitor interest, an abundance of world premieres and a variety of modern technologies, applications and materials: Formnext 2022 got off to an extremely successful start today, and will be presenting the elite of the additive manufacturing world in Frankfurt until 18 November. It also offers a supporting program full of highlights along the entire process chain. With more than 800 exhibitors and four hall levels, the eighth Formnext can clearly surpass last year's figures and for four days it is turning the trade fair city on the River Main into the worldwide center of innovative production solutions.
