Formnext reports exhibition ‘full to capacity’

September 11, 2018

The organiser of Formnext 2018, set to run in Frankfurt, Germany, from November 13-16, 2018, has announced that the two levels of the exhibition Hall 3 are now full to capacity. With some 550 exhibitors, Formnext 2018 will showcase the latest Additive Manufacturing technologies and solutions across some 36,000m2  of floor space.

The leading exhibition for AM and cutting-edge production techniques, Formnext has recorded significant growth in terms of number of exhibitors and exhibition space. In addition to the exhibition in Hall 3, supporting events will be held in adjacent spaces, such as the TCT Conference @ Formnext in Hall 4.

It was stated that this year’s event will see an even wider range of topics covered along the relevant process chains, and key areas such as software, material, and pre- and post-processing (for example, for powder removal, surface finishing, and heat treatment) will also receive increased attention. Among the 550 exhibitors, a total of 165 will be showcasing their products at Formnext for the first time.

Sascha F Wenzler, Vice President for Formnext at event organiser Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, stated, “The fact that we’ve been able to occupy all the exhibition space so well even after expanding again underlines the highly dynamic and sustainable growth of Formnext. This is an impressive confirmation of the exhibition concept that we have developed together with the industry.”

To meet the growing demand, Formnext 2019 will relocate to the newly built exhibition Hall 12 of the Frankfurt exhibition ground, which – combined with Hall 11 – provides an exhibition space of around 58,000 m2.
