The U.S. Department of Commerce has granted Formnext, the exhibition for additive manufacturing and modern industrial production, official certification as a recognised industry trade fair.

The American official certification granting Formnext as a recognised industry show will open doors to further possibilities for both American and German exhibitors, the fair's organiser, Mesago Messe Frankfurt notes. The U.S. Commercial Service, the departmental entity responsible for promoting American exports, also supports German companies interested in doing business in the U.S. It fosters trade relations between German and American companies – also at exhibitions like Formnext. With its long experience and extensive network, this entity is able to identify suitable business partners and contacts on both sides of the Atlantic.

After Germany, the number of American-based companies exhibiting at Formnext 2017 was reported to be second highest after China, contributing a share of 10.7%. Among them were leading additive manufacturing companies and ambitious start-ups including the big boys in AM like 3D Systems, Desktop Metal, Envision Tec, Ex One, General Electric, HP and Stratasys. Internationally renowned start-up company Carbon 3D has confirmed to be at Formnext 2018, Mesago adds.

Sascha Wenzler, Formnext Vice President says: “Formnext is offering more and more U.S. companies the perfect setting for introducing themselves to an international audience of experts and gaining a foothold in the German and European markets.”

According to Mesago, the U.S. Commercial Service took into account the significance for American companies as well as the event's visitor and exhibitor statistics trend, the industries and product areas the fair featured and Formnext's certification from the independent monitoring organisation FKM to grant this certification. This welcome development has thus underscored the exhibition's importance worldwide.

This year, Formnext will take place from 13-16 November 2018 at Messe Frankfurt, Germany.
