Sascha F. Wenzler, Vice President formnext at event organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, was clearly pleased with this year’s results:

“formnext 2016 sets a clear statement. Already with the second edition it established a fixed place in the event calendars of the related industries.”

Another impressive aspect of formnext 2016 was its international flavor, with 44 percent of visitors attending from outside of Germany. They included representatives from global OEMs and leading firms from a range of industries.

The next formnext powered by tct is scheduled to take place on 14 – 17 November 2017 in Frankfurt am Main.
