Following the successful return of the in-person event last year, Formnext organiser Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH has reported that over 690 companies have already reserved exhibition space, exceeding the final number of exhibitors that attended in 2021. In addition to the exhibition, Formnext 2022 will host an extensive programme of new and established supporting events.

“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 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,” explains Sascha F Wenzler, VP, Mesago Messe Frankfurt.

Thus far, Additive Manufacturing companies such as 3D Systems, Additive Industries, AddUp, Arburg, BigRep, Carbon, Desktop Metal, DMG Mori, Dyemansion, EOS, Evonik, Farsoon, Formlabs, GE Additive, HP, Keyence, Markforged, Materialise, Renishaw, Ricoh, Siemens, Sisma, SLM Solutions Group, Stratasys, Trumpf, Voxeljet, Xerox, XJet and Zeiss have registered for the in-person event. In addition, numerous well-known international corporations – including BASF, Covestro, Evonik, GKN Sinter Metals Components, Höganäs, Linde, Mitsubishi Chemical, Oerlikon, Sandvik and many more – will showcase their solutions along the entire process chain.

This year’s partner country France has had a strong presence at Formnext for many years. More than thirty French companies, associations and research institutes will exhibit at the trade show, showcasing a diverse portfolio of products and services along the entire process chain in industries such as medicine, aerospace and the automotive industries. French partners and AM associations, regions and research institutions will also be present at Formnext, with France Additive, Cimes, CCI Nouvelle-Aquitaine and the Carnot network for Additive Manufacturing all in attendance.

The programme of supporting events will include the start-up challenge, which honours innovative and viable business ideas from young companies, taking place for the eighth time. The exhibitors in the start-up area will present themselves in brief pitches on the AM4U stage. There will also be interesting contributions on the topic of investment and funding. The design competition, known as the purmundus challenge, will celebrate its tenth anniversary with a reception and showcase of the past winners.

The BE-AM showcase will highlight developments in relation to the increasingly important topic of Additive Manufacturing in the construction industry. At the same time, the BE-AM symposium will present an overview of the sector, and look at future developments in this field. The topic of standards, important for the entire AM industry and all users, will once again be discussed by experts and decision-makers from around the world at the renowned ASTM Standards Forum on November 14, 2022, one day before the trade fair commences.

Formnext 2022 visitors can take advantage of discounted early bird ticket prices up to October 15, 2022.
