The AM Pavilion will encompass AM4U by Formnext. This multi-use zone represents the first presence of a new partnership by AMT, Gardner Business Media (GBM), Mesago Messe Frankfurt (organizers of Formnext, Europe’s largest AM show), and Messe Frankfurt North America. The partnership creates Formnext USA Chicago, which will launch April 8-10, 2025, and serve as the U.S. event dedicated to industrial AM.
Since 2015, Formnext has grown to become the premier additive manufacturing trade show in the world, nearly quadrupling exhibitor and visitor numbers in just five years. In its drive to improve, grow and explore opportunities in the global marketplace, Mesago Messe Frankfurt was excited to announce that it had found the ideal partners in AMT and GBM.
Prompted by the continued and accelerated adoption of additive manufacturing by both new and established manufacturers in the United States, Mesago Messe Frankfurt, AMT and GBM will debut a series of events with the Formnext brand to build their presence in the U.S. The initial showing of Formnext in the USA market will be at IMTS – The International Manufacturing Technology Show, which runs 12 – 17 September 2022 in Chicago at McCormick Place, the premiere business trade show venue in North America.
The timeline for the new series of U.S. events is as follows:
2022: AM4U Area presented by Formnext will be featured at IMTS 2022 from September 12–17; Additive Manufacturing Conference 2022 continues to be co-located at IMTS 2022. The Additive Manufacturing Conference is owned and operated by Gardner Business Media.
