In 2020 Formnext Connect is the virtual alternative for business and knowledge exchange for the global AM community in these times of a global pandemic. Formnext Connect brings the fAMily together!
What is Formnext Connect?
The virtual Formnext Connect ideally complements its physical counterpart. The whole world of additive manufacturing will be presenting the latest solutions for the entire process chain. The supporting program also offers digital knowledge transfer at the highest level with the partners ACAM, BE-AM Symposium, purmundus, TCT, VDMA AG AM etc.
