How is Formnext developing in terms of the internationality of its visitors and exhibitors?

At the premiere event, Formnext had already achieved a very high level of internationality, both in terms of exhibitors and in terms of visitors. This is an important element in the concept of Formnext, for which we have deliberately chosen the location of Frankfurt am Main in the heart of Germany and of Europe. 42% of exhibitors and 48% of visitors came from abroad. The most important countries in terms of both exhibitors and visitors were France, the UK, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Russia, Spain, Turkey, China, HK, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and the United States, by the way. With the integration of the global subsidiaries of the Messe Frankfurt group, we continue to strengthen the fair's internationality, but also put particular emphasis on the quality of exhibitors and showcased products.

Why does Formnext prove popular with visitors in your opinion?

Formnext provides a convincing process-oriented and harmonious concept that is closely aligned to the needs and developments of its target groups. Visitors to Formnext will find exactly the information, contacts and solutions they require to make their development, processes and production future-proof. Its high internationality and density of innovation as well as the strong presence of global technology leaders make Formnext stand apart from other events. Highly attractive special exhibitions, like last year’s Audi Toolmaking, as well as our international trade conference offer visitors first-class information and contacts.

Are there any additional topics or aspects would you also like to introduce?

We are working towards showcasing the entire industrial process chain in an even broader way. This includes among other things a further expansion of areas like design, materials, software, or quality assurance. With Formnext 2016, we are well on track towards this goal.

What about the supporting program?

The Formnext trade conference held over the course of the fair and planned by our partner TCT will once again offer high-profile keynotes and serve as a think tank for the latest technologies and applications. Our Design Area, the Start-Up Challenge for young innovative companies and our planned special exhibitions will again offer real added value.
