With 393 registered exhibitors two months before the trade fair opens its doors, Formnext 2017 has already surpassed the figures of last year’s successful event by around 50 per cent. The exhibition space is also set to expand by more than 50 per cent – from 15,500 to around 27,000 square meters. Under the theme “international exhibition and conference on the next generation of manufacturing technologies,” Formnext boasts an international presence of around 49.6 per cent, with participating companies from 33 countries. The top countries in terms of exhibitors are China (accounting for 14.7 per cent of international exhibitors); the USA (10.2 per cent); France and Great Britain (each with 9.6 per cent); Spain (7.1 per cent); and the Netherlands, Austria, and Russia (each with 6.1 per cent).

In 2017, Formnext will once again present the global elite in additive manufacturing. An array of highly innovative young AM companies from all across the world will be showing off their latest developments, as well. Visitors to Formnext will be treated to numerous world and European premieres as well as technology-driven product developments. Formnext focuses on the efficient realization of parts and products, from their design to serial production. The conference set to take place alongside the exhibition will also highlight the latest trends and issues in additive manufacturing, along with clever ways in which it can be integrated into process chains in industrial production.
