Formnext 2021 – Where ideas take shape.
As the leading industry platform for additive manufacturing and industrial 3D printing, Formnext 2021 is the international meeting point for the next generation of intelligent industrial production.
After fully digital version in 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Formnext 2021 is back with a physical show for the global additive manufacturing industry.
Experience AM live and in color again
There’s nothing like a live event. That was also your summary at the end of last year. And for us there was no better news. A cure for the virus has been found, vaccination campaigns and testing has picked up speed, and we too are ready for whatever may come.
The planning for a hybrid Formnext in Frankfurt am Main is in full swing. Special participation conditions and comprehensive protection and hygiene concept offer you the greatest possible flexibility and security for a worry-free trade show event. Click here for details.
Be part of the AM world, be part of the fAMily!
In addition to the entire spectrum of different additive manufacturing processes, Formnext presents an overview of all upstream and downstream processes.
Experts from a wide range of industry sectors such as automotive, aerospace, mechanical engineering, medical technology, electrical engineering discover innovative production technologies in Frankfurt. Always with a view to increasing efficiency, conserving resources, optimizing time-to-market for their products and opening up new possibilities in design and production.
Above all, Formnext is the place to be for people who want to share, expand and exchange their passion, motivation and expertise. Be part of this special community, the fAMily!
Preparations are full steam ahead for Formnext 2021 and the event is shaping up to be an unmissable one. Highlights are to include high-caliber talks by industry experts, the presentations from Italy as the partner country, the innovations from the purmundus challenge, and the 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. Formnext will, as ever, be frequented by the majority of the most significant companies in the industry. Around 450 exhibitors, including 55% 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.
Whilst there is clearly a lot to look forward to, the health and safety of all attendees remain paramount. As the organizer states on its website, the protection and hygiene concept, which was developed last year to comply with, and even exceed, the legal requirements, is therefore continuously being adapted to the pandemic situation. Wider aisles in the halls, as well as additional communication and waiting areas in higher frequented zones at the event will 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 – 1 December 2021. With the rapid growth of the AM community and demand for 3D printed products in all areas of industry, it is vital to enable those still facing travel restrictions to participate in the exchange of ideas.
