Formnext Expo 2023

At Formnext, more than 800 exhibitors and more than 30,000 visitors will meet from 7 – 10 November 2023 and transform Frankfurt am Main into the capital of additive manufacturing. This community, the fAMily, is dedicated to the ever-growing adoption of AM in an industrial context.

Formnext Expo 2022 – review

For four days, Formnext 2022 turned host city Frankfurt into the global capital of industrial 3D printing. And this year’s exhibition was very much in tune with the times. As the coronavirus pandemic continues and new political and economic challenges emerge as a result, Additive Manufacturing can play a key role in decentralizing manufacturing processes and production, making supply chains more resilient, and facilitating resource and energy efficient production in order to get innovative new products onto the market faster.

A glance at the figures shows just how important Formnext has become. More exhibitors, more visitors, once again many new topics and an enthusiastic atmosphere. We are impressed by the agility of the AM community, which simply won't stand still. We would like to thank everyone who was there and and helped to make Formnext once again the annual highlight of the AM community. You are great!
