Formnext 2015 was a huge success, 2016 is shaping up to be the same
The stage is set for formnext powered by tct to continue its impressive development. Some nine months (as of 1 March 2016) prior to the 2016 opening of this international exhibition and conference on 15 November in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, exhibitors have already snapped up more than 70 per cent of the previous year’s exhibition space. An array of international market leaders have already committed to attending formnext 2016, including 3D Systems, Additive Industries, Alphacam, Arburg, Autodesk, Bikar, EOS, Heraeus, Hermle, Knarr, Listemann, Materialise, Realizer, SLM Solutions, Werth Messtechnik, and many more. “This enthusiastic response from our exhibitors is a continuation of formnext’s outstanding development, which we laid the foundation for at our debut exhibition in 2015,” declares Sascha F. Wenzler, Vice President formnext at Mesago Messe Frankfurt.
formnext is also proving very popular with newcomers looking to use its innovative exhibition platform to help their businesses succeed. Meanwhile, numerous returning exhibitors have taken their excellent results from formnext 2015 as a reason to expand their stand space this year.

Newcomers from the fields of materials, engineering services, and form making have also decided to exhibit at formnext 2016.
