Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, organiser of Formnext 2024, has announced that over 570 companies from thirty-five countries have already registered for the event, scheduled to take place in Frankfurt, Germany, from November 19-22, 2024. The figure exceeds the bookings at this time twelve months ago, and sets the event on course for another record year.

“The fantastic registration figures for Formnext reflect the relevance of Additive Manufacturing for the whole of the industrial sector,” stated Sascha F Wenzler, Vice President for Formnext at Mesago Messe Frankfurt. “AM is a technology that makes it possible to meet current challenges and harness new economic potential. At the same time, Formnext also reflects the continued strong growth of the global AM industry, which paves the way for the industrial future with numerous innovations and applications every year.”

Wenzler attributes the fact that the event is able to continue its impressive success story, even in these rather complex times, to the excellent business opportunities offered by the world of Additive Manufacturing and Formnext – not only for manufacturers of Additive Manufacturing machines, but also for companies along the entire process chain.

“We are also seeing more and more companies from traditional industrial sectors discovering the 3D Printing industry as an exciting sales market and wanting to benefit from the annual growth rates, which tend to be in double digits,” he explained.

Rainer Lotz, President EMEA at Renishaw and Chairman of the Formnext Exhibitor Advisory Board, confirms the relevance of Formnext, “We recognised the potential of Additive Manufacturing many years ago. Formnext has since been our annual focal point to showcase our innovations in the AM field, as well as in the overall process, particularly in the area of quality assurance, and to drive forward the industrialisation of the technology.”

This development is highlighted by the high number of new exhibitors, including companies such as Bechtle AG, PLC, and Schaeffler Special Machinery.

Daniel Pokorny, Vice President Communications Technology, Innovation & Digitalisation at Schaeffler, outlines the first-time registration at Formnext, “Schaeffler Special Machinery will showcase its in-house developed multimaterial 3D Printing machine for industrial manufacturing at the trade show. Through sample parts, the machine manufacturer of the Schaeffler Group will also demonstrate their diverse application potentials for industries such as medical technology or e-mobility. With its debut appearance at Formnext, the Motion Technology Company aims to establish itself as a reliable technology partner in the growing market for Additive Manufacturing in the long run.”
