Show organisers, Mesago Messe Frankfurt and the TCT Group, look back at satisfied exhibitors and attendees at the Formnext last November based on its recent statistics and survey.
The growth of Formnext powered by TCT is said to be showing no signs of stopping. Indeed, the latest results from a survey of the visitors and exhibitors at last year’s event affirm the atmosphere of innovation, technical quality and a good level of attendee satisfaction. Its successful development has now put the exhibition in a good position to further solidify its reputation as a leading international event in intelligent industrial production.
Virtually every visitor came away satisfied
According to the organisers, the statistics indicate that the show in 2016 set the stage for further growth. A total of 13,384 attendees and 307 exhibitors from 28 countries used the event as a platform for international business. 98% of the visitors reported being “satisfied” or “highly satisfied” with the exhibition. Meanwhile, more than three-fourths of the 307 exhibitors were satisfied or highly satisfied with the number of new contacts they acquired. In total, 94% of last year’s exhibitors planned on booking their own booth again in 2017.
All the exhibiting companies and over 1,000 attendees were interviewed for this survey at Formnext 2016.
Leading decision makers on hand from user industries
The show also drew an audience of international experts from nearly every relevant user industry, the organisers revealed. These included representatives from Adidas, Apple, BMW, Bosch, Bulgari, Deutsche Bahn, Ferrari, Honeywell, Kuka, Lufthansa Technik, Mercedes-Benz, Merck, MTU, Nike, Porsche, Procter & Gamble, Samsung and ZF.
Furthermore, the event’s share of international visitors was 44%, which was 2% higher than the previous year.
For those interested in exhibiting at Formnext 2017, the deadline for early-bird registrations is 3 March 2017. This year’s edition will take place from 14-17 November in Frankfurt am Main.
