Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, organiser of Formnext 2024, has shared that this year’s event will feature six Formnext Awards. The awards will be presented across different categories, including young innovative companies, sustainable business ideas, and pioneering technologies.

“It’s not just start-ups and new companies who benefit from exchanging ideas, showcasing their businesses, and networking with potential customers, partners, and investors. Therefore, rather than only supporting our AM newcomers, we now want to reach out to the growing diversity of the AM industry through our Formnext Awards as well and recognise the achievements of an even broader range of disciplines,” explained Sascha F Wenzler, Vice President for Formnext at Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH. “With our new awards, we also want to honour and promote achievements beyond the existing product categories.”

The Formnext Awards will recognise the following categories:

  • Start-up Award, supported by AM Ventures, which aims to celebrate young, inspiring companies with viable business models
  • Rookie Award, recognising individuals with promising business ideas who have either not yet founded a company or who launched less than a year ago.
  • Sustainability Award, supported by Renishaw, highlighting AM applications and products evaluated on the basis of their product life cycle
  • Design Award, recognising AM design and AM products assessed on the basis of aesthetic and functional considerations
  • (R)Evolution Award, supported by 3D Printing Industry, will highlight products, technologies, or services demonstrating exceptional innovation and particular added value for the user
  • AMbassador Award, outstanding individuals or organisations who have had a unique impact on the industry and users through innovative training and education approaches, projects, or their personal advocacy.

Submissions for the Start-up Award close on August 9, 2024; the remaining categories are open until September 6, 2024.

The finalists will be selected by the panel of judges, after which submissions and exhibits will be showcased at Formnext. Overall winners will then be chosen with the help of the public vote, with on-site and online visitors able to vote for one of the finalists in each of the six categories. The winners will be presented at the award ceremony on the evening of November 21, 2024.

In addition to the Formnext Award trophy sponsored by Voxeljet and designed by SUTOSUTO, the winners will also receive prize packages consisting of cash and non-cash prizes as well as extensive communication and marketing activities.

Applications can be submitted now. For the submission form and more information, click here.
