The organizers of Formnext Chicago have announced that they have secured letters of intent from 20 companies to exhibit at Formnext Chicago, to be held April 8-10, 2025, at McCormick Place, in Chicago.
These companies represent some of the world’s premier providers of additive manufacturing technologies, as well as startup companies launching new materials solutions. Confirmed exhibitors include EOS, Desktop Metal, Autodesk, HP, Zeiss, Mazak, Markforged, 3DEO, 3D Systems, Oqton, Baker Industries, Dyndrite, Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies, Massivit 3D, nTopology, Velo3D, Carpenter Technology, Trumpf, Ingersoll Machine Tools, and America Makes.
“Formnext Chicago will truly capture the entire spectrum of AM-related technologies, creating a unique experience at a familiar destination,” says Douglas K. Woods, president, AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology. “The initial exhibiting companies represent an additive value chain that starts with materials, moves through design and control software, production and post-production equipment, service providers, and metrology.”
Formnext in 2019 event featured 852 exhibitors and attracted 34,532 visitors, and the November 2022 show has more than 760 exhibitors. Formnext Chicago resulted when Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, the organizers of Formnext, cooperated with AMT and Gardner Business Media, creating a partnership for the additive and manufacturing industry in the North American market.
In support of bringing Formnext to the United States, a series of Formnext Forums will be held over the next two years. The first is in Austin, Texas, on Aug. 28-30, 2023.
