With approximately 450 exhibitors to date, the additive manufacturing community around the world can look forward to meeting face-to-face again at Formnext. This follows almost two years of almost entirely digital encounters.

Highlights at the trade fair are to include high-caliber talks by industry experts, the presentations from Italy as the partner country, the innovations from the purmundus challenge, and Start-up Challenge Pitch-Next Event as well as the TCT Conference and Stage plus VDMA´s and BE-AM´s (Built Environment) special areas. Moreover ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) organizes as a premiere an international standards workshop on the day before Formnext starts. The Formnext team is going all out to make this first event after a year of not meeting physically one to remember.

Around 450 exhibitors, including 55 percent from abroad, have registered already including 3D Systems, Additive Industries, Addup, Arburg, Autodesk, BigRep, DMG Mori, Dyndrite, EOS, ExOne, Farsoon, Formlabs, GE, Hexagon, HP, Keyence, Markforged, Materialise, Meltio, Nexa 3D, Prima Industrie, Renishaw, Sandvik, Siemens, Stratasys, Trumpf, Voxeljet and XJet.

As the organizer states on its website, the protection and hygiene concept, which was developed last year to comply with, and even exceed. Wider aisles in the halls, as well as additional communication and waiting areas in higher frequented zones at the event are to help people maintain the necessary social distancing. A 3G concept will also be introduced (vaccinated, recovered, tested).

The physical event will be complemented with the Formnext Digital Days two weeks later from 30 November to 1 December 2021.
