52 percent of the registered exhibitors hail from 30 nations around the world and the total space for Formnext 2021 is almost fully booked already. The leading international AM companies include: 3D Systems, Additive Industries, AddUp, Arburg, BigRep, Desktop Metal, Dyemansion, EOS, Evonik, Farsoon, Formlabs, GE Additive, HP, Keyence, Markforged, Materialise, Nikon, Renishaw, Ricoh, Sandvik, Siemens, Sisma, Stratasys, Trumpf, Voxeljet, XJet and Zeiss.
“We have never had such a large number of registrations at such an early stage in the year,” says a delighted Sascha F. Wenzler, Vice President Formnext at organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH.
A number of well-known groups that have discovered additive manufacturing and offer innovative solutions along the additive process chain, such as BASF 3D Printing Solutions, Covestro, GKN Sinter Metal Components, Höganäs, Oerlikon, SMS Group and many more, have also registered.
Among the international exhibitors already registered, companies from the US (14.6 percent of international exhibitors), Italy (11.1 percent), the UK (7.6 percent), France and the Netherlands (6.3 percent each) are the most represented. “This successful development shows that exhibitors continue to see Formnext as the most important industry meeting point and an extremely valuable trade show platform, and allows us to look forward to a successful Formnext 2022 with a great deal of confidence,” said Wenzler. “This development also underscores the fact that, for many companies in the AM industry, in-person interaction is essential to successfully conduct business, drive developments or find partners and investors.”
Companies can still benefit from the early bird discount (more than 17% discount) until 31 March 2022.
In addition to the exhibition in November, the Formnext website provides a central information point for professionals interested in AM. It offers an extensive media library with technical papers and presentations by industry experts. In addition, Formnext’s AM Directory is the most comprehensive directory of suppliers offering additive manufacturing solutions.
