Formnext powered by TCT (15 - 18 November 2016, Frankfurt) is fully booked more than a month before the start of the exhibition. "We did not expect such a rapid growth and are extremely happy to witness this growing popularity, which is also a great recognition of the fair and its concept," says Sascha F. Wenzler, vice president of Formnext. "In this respect, we would like to thank our exhibitors and our partner, TCT, for their incredible support. With exhibitors from 25 countries, we again achieve an impressive internationality of 48%."

"We are very proud to say that nearly all world leaders in this field are present at the 2016 fair and view Formnext powered by TCT as a leading trade fair," he continues to say. "However, this advanced technology can only realise its full potential in combination with other, particularly conventional methods. Therefore, other areas of Formnext, like design, prototyping, machine tools and toolmaking, materials, measurement engineering, software and others, are also very important for our concept, and innovative and leading companies in these fields will exhibit at Formnext."
