Germany's Formnext Trade Fair gains U.S. Commercial Certification

Friday, May 11, 2018
The United States Department of Commerce has granted Formnext, the additive-manufacturing trade fair held annually in Frankfurt, Germany, official certification as a recognized industry trade fair. The U.S. was Formnext's second-leading sources of exhibitors outside of Germany in 2017. (China was first). Companies such as 3D Systems, Desktop Metal, EnvisionTEC, ExOne, General Electric, HP, and Stratasys were on hand last year, and many new exhibitors are set to join them this year, including start-up Carbon 3D.

“The certification is now going to help us provide these firms with an even better platform and further services,” says Sascha F. Wenzler, vice president for Formnext at event organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH.
